Newborn with silver hair.


Q: My daughter was born with sparkling silver hair. Why would this be. Her hair stood straight up. From root for about one inch it was dark brown almost black and the remaining .50 inch of hair was a sparkling silver. Like tinsle. All the hair on her head was coloured this way. It fanned out like animal fur. It felt and looked like fur. She is now 4 years old an has numerous silver hairs that are the full lenghth of her long hair. These silvers are random and not local to one spot. What would have happened in my pregnancy to cause this? Could she have a health issue I should be aware of? I have never heard of a newborn with silver sparkling hair.
