Why do I sometimes find hair that is black at root but white at the tip?

Occasionally, I will find one or two hairs that are white at the tip but black (my normal hair color) at the root/base - the bottom 2-3cm of hair will be black, the top will be white. What's going on here? I've not noticed this happen anywhere on my body but ... down there.

I'm a 22 yr old female. Both my parents started finding a few white hairs in their early thirties, but my mother at least had never found hair that was white at the tip but black at the bottom. What's going on here?
The hairs are never clustered together, and I only ever find just one. I'm a little freaked out.
