Can I Bald Without Shedding?

I’m wondering if its possible to begin to have a receding hairline/thinning crown/diffuse thinning, without there being an associated increase in hair shedding (i.e. when styling hair, washing it, on bed). Every article I read says that MPB puts more hair in the shedding phase, so that should mean MPB and shedding are correlated. But isnt it possible to go bald without any noticable increase in shedding? In other words, maybe the 50 – 100 hairs you lose a day, while normal by all metrics, simply just dont grow back.

I would think that for diffuse thinners/crown thinning, there has to be an increase in shedding since it covers so much area… But for hairline recession maybe less so because the temples are a smaller region?

Recession and balding can occur separately, but developing an extensive balding pattern will produce shedding in all men eventually
