The phenomenon of hair turning white from fright (or shock, grief or stress) persists in literature, poetry and even a handful of medical journals. Though the most notable pop culture reference is probably the Bride of Frankenstein, who has two large white streaks through her hair.
So, is there any truth to the rumor that we can actually scare our hair?
Yes and no, said dermatologist Dr. David Orentreich, associate director of the Orentreich Medical Group in New York and assistant clinical professor in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
