I actually pulled one of his hairs out today that was red for about 3 inches and then transitioned to sort of a clear color and then to white. It was like a person who needs a dye job because their roots are showing LOL.
    Thats cool- just wonderin.


    Hey- that's what most of my hair looks like too, lol. I need a dye job! very interesting how they can be born with such fabulous hair! I guess us humans can be too.. just not me.. Im goin grey!
