Hello, this is the first time I’ve contacted anyone about my hair, so far I have grown quite paranoid from all these posts in this forum and in others. I’d just like to ask a few questions, to start off with is every hair shed in telogen phase and if so are they smaller than more anagen phased hairs? I’ve noticed some smaller wispy hairs when I blow dry or dry my with a towel, its not a whole lot but its a few noticeable ones, question is is this normal or is it early indication of MPB?
Last question should hair at the hairline, when pulled or pain, excrete some kind of pain because other hairs on the scalp that I have pulled have shown pain.
I am not exactly sure what you are asking. If you pull your hair, there is pain. Usually tiny nerves are attached to the hair follicle, so naturally, if you pull your hair you will be affecting these nerve fibers to send sensation/pain signals. I suppose some areas would be more painful than others.
As to if you have balding, I would not be able to say based on your email, but male pattern hair loss is not a physically painful process (maybe emotionally, yes). You need an examination for a real diagnosis. When the hair is ready to fall out (like in people who are actively balding) the hair ‘fall’ is not painful at all, because the living follicle is often in its telogen phase so I would not expect to experience any pain with these hairs.
