About a month ago I noticed a few wiry gray hairs in one of my baby dreads. I picked them out, which caused the baby dread to unravel a bit, and didn't worry about it. Well now I have been noticing more gray hairs in a few baby dreads. They're not noticeable by anyone but me, and are very short. It's not lint; definitely gray hairs. I am only 18, and the dreads with gray hairs were twist and ripped. I use do not use wax or any product, and the only maintenance is separating and washing. Could this simply be the old hair shedding?
