Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, "The Jews and the Christians do not dye (their grey hair), so you shall do the opposite of what they do (i.e. dye your grey hair and beards).

Reference      : Sahih al-Bukhari 3462
In-book reference      : Book 60, Hadith 129
USC-MSA web (English) reference      : Vol. 4, Book 55, Hadith 668

Ibn Sirin reported:
Anas b. Malik was asked whether Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) dyed his hair. He said: He had not become old enough to have white hair. Ibn Idris said that he had a few white hair. Abu Bakr and Umar, however, dyed hair with hina' (henna).

Reference      : Sahih Muslim 2341 a
In-book reference      : Book 43, Hadith 131
USC-MSA web (English) reference      : Book 30, Hadith 5779
