So, in the past year my hair has been thinning, and I've noticed the follicle miniaturization (fine, wispy hairs in place of former long, thicker hairs, etc.). In the past couple of weeks, suddenly (I couldn't do this before) I can tug on some hair and it will come OUT. And I notice a lot of it in drain, etc., whereas before (even with the miniaturization) I didn't think I had a hair LOSS problem. And tugging didn't do anything before two weeks ago. Also, it seems suddenly really dry, really thin, very easily tangles (and then comes out). I assumed this was female pattern hair loss/Androgenetic Alopecia, etc, before it started falling out. Is the falling- out- easily-thing related to the miniaturization of follicles? Or is this something different? I'm FREAKING OUT. Thanks for any help/reassurance/advice!!!
