My hair is coarse but I have seen the opposite, I've seen faint, fine hair at times. I think they're usually around the perimeter of my hairline.

By the way if you're pulling it out and it does not have a white tip, it's because this strand was not yet ready to fall on its own. Strands with the white tips are hair (in the telogen phase) that shed naturally with the root, so it's not abnormal that the strands you're yanking do not have the root. Don't pull them, it's still your hair.
