Grey and white hair color is very individual [In reply to] Can't Post

My father's hair was completely grey/white by the time he was 30. On the other hand, my mother didn't get white hairs until she was in her 60's and now at 70 her hair is still a mix of blonde and white. I'm stuck in the middle--at 49, my hair is about 1/2 grey, with white streaks and some dark blonde left. I also have a friend whose hair went completely white by age 20! And then there's beards...which can be a different color from scalp hair.

I did notice the changes in Thorin's hair over the various scenes in the prologue, and he has some grey streaks in AUJ. So there is really no reason why Balin couldn't be white-haired while Thorin is still mostly dark-haired, and I believe Balin is older.

'"Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo you fool!" he said to himself, and it became a favourite saying of his later, and passed into a proverb.'
