How can you tell if your losing hair?

I cannot remember a time where I didn't have a big forehead and thin hair. I've had it since I was a toddler. I am worried though - it looks like my forehead is slightly getting bigger but I never shed extraordinary amounts of hair. When I brush my hair my brush has a few hairs on it but nothing drastic.

My mother has the same exact forehead that I have but looking at pictures of her when she was younger she doesn't seem like she had it back then. she drinks and smokes and she has since she was about my age - like 19. Im very healthy - or at least i think so? i drink a lot of water but i occasionally eat junk food...

So basically my real question is... How can you tell if you're losing hair? What if for example... one hair falls out and doesn't grow back...? how does a receding hairline work?
