Re 2: Rainbow Hair

Dear Prof

The correct term for the tufts of different color scalp hair is heterochromia of the scalp hair. I am bit worried, as this is apparently a very rare phenomenon and can be due to pigmentary mosaicism or something in the spectrum hypomelanosis of Ito. So do you think its time to have the genetic testing done after all?
