I noticed when i started to grow hair out ive been losing strands of hair quite easily. My hair is about 3-4 inches long now, and i have a couple questions:
1. Because im growing my hair out does that mean its easier to fall out/ more noticible when it falls out?
2. And it appears that im losing hair from all sides of my head, basically every where the back, the top the sides exct. so does this mean that this is not male pattern baldness since there is no pattern to it?
This could be that because of the long hair, its easier to fall out or pull it out with styling. Therefore, it will be more noticeable when it falls out as you suggested in your question.
It is also important to know that hair length is a reflection of the length of the hair cycle and each person has a different hair cycle lasting on average between 2-7 years. As hair grows at 1/2 inch per month, just calculate length over time. If you hair cycle is short (1 year) then every hair on your head will cycle every year (just an example here, as most people have at least a 2 year hair growth cycle).
If you are losing hair on the sides and back of your head, it may not be male pattern baldness, but could be an infection or disease. To be sure, and not cause yourself more worry, you should have your hair and scalp mapped for miniaturization so you and your doctor can know what is going on.
