    I know hair is uncountable.
    how about white hair.


    My grandpop has much white hair
    My grandpop has many white hairs

    How about inserting a number. Is this possible?

    If you can count the hair it is countable. Generally "hair" is an uncountable noun.

    Since it's Sunday: :)

    Matthew 10:29-31 (King James Version)

    Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.

    But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

    Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    For example, I don't have white hair but I have a few white hairs.
