I notice that about 50% of the hairs I lose have this white junk attached around the white bulb.

Any idea? I know a white bulb is normal but idk what this white stuff is. Sometimes I have multiple hairs attached to one glump of this stuff. Could this be causing some hairloss.

Can't really tell by the picture but from your description it sounds like skin. When I had dandruff really badly after quitting fin most of my hairs had skin flakes on the bulb.

When the bulb is white at the bottom that just means the hair has gone dormant. If you pull out a hair on your head the bulb will be black. The white stuff is probably just some skin cells, sebum, etc etc.
