two different colors of hair

Post by cis4cookie » Wed Feb 04, 2009 4:33 am

All my life I've had dark brown hair. Except for a rather large patch of much lighter brown hair on the side of my head. I figure the cause of this is probably genetics, but what I'm most searching for is a name for my condition. Does anybody know if there is a name for a condition in which the person has two different colors of hair?
