White Hair for Humans

Been doing some research but either the data isn't out there or I'm asking the wrong question.

I have a story with a young girl who gets into trouble at school for violating policy on hair dyeing and bleaching. Her father is unable to convince the school board that she has naturally white hair.

According to what I've found, among humans only albinos have white hair. However, many animals can. The father is trying to cover up the fact that his daughter is part fox.

Are there any rare pigmentation conditions which could result in white hair in a human female without any other lack of color, such as the eyes or skin?
