In brief: Hair loss

It would be unlikely that running you hands through your hair would cause hair lose.
Since all hairs on your head go through a growth phase and a shedding phase it more likely that the hairs you find between your fingers is normal shedding

100-200 hairs shed per day is "normal." It would only be concerning if you were experiencing symptoms like decreased coverage, widening part-line, receding hairline, loss of volume, etc.
