Is a Natural White Streak in Hair Something to Worry About?

A natural white streak that occurs in the hair is known as poliosis, and if it was present at birth, chances are it is nothing to worry about; however, if it was acquired later in life, it could be the symptom of an underlying medical condition. Most cases of poliosis are found on the scalp, but the white streaks or patches of hair can be found on any part of the body.
