Maffsolo, your hair will not turn gray if you are frightened. This is an untrue legend. A specific skin cell type, melanocytes, only in the hair follicles of the head stop functioning as one gets older. All of the other melanocytes in the body continue to make melanin, so this change in head hair is very specific and is probably not related to any gland (e.g. pituitary). Steve
