Hello world

I was wondering, is there a correlation between Male Pattern Baldness and the amount of hair that is shedding , for example , when you go through your hair? Lately Ive been losing quite a few strands of hair when I go through my hair and the bathroom floor is full of it (like 20-30 when i dry my hair with a towel)

It is normal for non balding people to shed up to 100 hairs per day. Some days you may shed more. Some days you may shed less. It is only an indication of a problem if you are consistently shedding well over 100 hairs per day every day.

Ok thanks.
But ive also noticed that i'm only shedding hair on the frontal and temporal sides of my head, while i lose almost no hair when I dry the back of my head. Altho Ive been having this for quite a while, without seeing any thinning, Im worrying that this cant go on forever

Do you want me to repeat what I said above?

Counting hairs will drive you nutty. Don't do that. Instead keep a photo journal of good quality photos of your scalp taken every six months.
