I’m a 16 year old boy from the United States and I have been really worried about my hair over the past few months. so what is happening is that I am noticing a lot of hair strands falling off my hair mostly at night or when I’m showering(not really in the morning) I am not really receding from my hairline but I can see a small line of my scalp above it( I don’t know, I think it might be because I have really thin hair) And most importantly, I have talked to my dad about this and he said that a lot of his family is bald (even him). In the mornings before heading out to school I use mousse ( I actually used to use those really hard gels), and I go to school, play sports, have a part time job so I get really stressed out a lot of the time.
I was wondering if this is considered hair loss?
And if that’s not the case, is there something I can do to prevent hair loss in the future and make my hair stronger?
