I grew out my hair a while ago and noticed way more hairs falling out in the shower and kinda freaked out too. It turned out that I was just noticing it more because it was longer 99% sure the answer is no, but wanted to ask just in case. I’ve been on finasteride for almost 10 years now and it’s worked really well, but around a month ago I decided to grow our my hair a little (it’s still pretty short, just longer than before) and I’ve noticed considerably more shedding when washing my hair, on the pillow etc. Is it just coincidence? Am I just noticing it more because it’s longer? Did anyone else experience actually more shedding with longer hair?
When hair is miniaturized, long miniaturized hairs are easier to pull out if you brush or comb roughly.
