Could brushing hair when wet damage my hair?

I know you’re not supposed to brush wet hair after the shower, but I didn’t know that until today… After I’ve been doing it for years… Thankfully, currently, I have a pretty full head of pretty thick hair and I’m obviously prepared to stop brushing my wet hair indefinitely. However, I’m worried that I’ve done damage that can’t be undone that could eventually lead to severe hair loss in the future. Should I be concerned?

When people brush hair roughly, then they can pull out miniaturized hairs easily causing evident balding in those men or women with genetic hair loss and significant miniaturization. I tell people to use gentle brushing or a wide tooth brush or comb to minimize the pulling effect on these miniaturized hairs.
