Help Me Suspend My Disbelief?

So, I'm listening to Jody Piccoult's The Storyteller
, which has a number of incredible elements although the very real events of the Holocaust in Poland lie at the center of it. And she has a narrator relate that the night after his wife's transport from the Lodz ghetto, her husband's hair turns entirely white. From grief, not washing out hair dye.
But isn't that actually impossible? I can't believe this is a Real Thing.
