Hello, I am 'The French',
for your first sentence, you know surely that the white color it's not the same as grey and for the word hair you have been mistaken.
The word hair is differente that hairs.
You have hairs on your body but you have hair on your head.
For the second quote is one idiom. It's a comparaison between live and dead, but the meaning are not miserably or alone.
Have a nice day.
