Question
m 29 yrs, n i shave twice a week, 4m last 3-4 mnths hair in my shave(near chin) have becom white n they r increasing. plz help, how can i get rid

Answer
See a dermatologist. This could be the onset of Alopecia Areata where your body attacks the hair follicle and the cells that produce pigment. A cortisone injection into the spots or a strong cortisone cream  applied twice a day for several weeks is usually the treatment.
You could send a close up photo to make a more accurate diagnosis.
