I wonder why they say "gray hair" instead of "white hair" when such hair's color is actually "white" not "gray".
In Korean, we say "white hair", but I'd like to know if "gray hair" is just an idiom without any reason or it just has the "gray" color nuance.
So do they usually get gray hair as they age?
Also, the older the person is, the more likely their hair is going to be described as white.
....And there are stories about people's hair going 'white with fright' (usually after a night spent in a supposedly haunted house) - I think the rhyme is probably more important than the precise colour.
An incidental bit of vocab: a 'grey-hair' is an old man.
