24 and worried about losing hair

I am 24 years old and I’ve been experiencing some hair loss for the last three or four years. I’ve noticed it when I shower I’ll end with about 30-40 hairs on my hands, and there will be about 10-20 others on the pillow when I wake up. I’m kinda worried about this since it didn’t happen before and I am not through a period major stress, I didn’t make any changes in my diet either. I will see a dermatologist as soon as possible but I don’t know if I should make a big deal about it or not, since I can run my hand through my dry hair or pull it and there won’t be any hairs on it afterwards.

Some extra info: my dad isn’t bald but has a receding hairline and started experiencing hair loss when he was about 40 or so. It is summer where I live, I add this because I understand hair loss can vary depending on the season.

You should see a good doctor and find out exactly how much hair you are losing with the HAIRCHECK test ( https://baldingblog.com/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/ ). The point is to find out if you are really losing hair, how much you are losing and lost and what to do to stop it. This test establishes a metric on the loss so that in a year after you may have started treating it, you will know if you are gaining of losing ground.
