I know it is a sin to leave your hair exposed and therefore observing hijab is required. But if your hair falls on the floor, Is it sinful if a non mahram sees it?

I do try to avoid leaving the hair on the floor but my hair falls alot and if i havent noticed the hair will there be a sin commited on my part? Does this apply to hair on the floor or clothes aswell or not?

It would not be regarded as sin as the hair are not attached to your head anymore. However, it is best to exercise precaution by not allowing any non mahram see the hair which has fallen to safe oneself from fitnah.

And Allah knows best.
