Unhappy Why is my hair so thin?

Recently, I've been noticing how extremely thin my hair is. Im only 26 and I dont want to end up bald when Im 30. Its not socially acceptable for a woman to be bald, and I dont think I can pull off the sinead o'connor look. I've always had fine hair but at least it there was enough of it so I didnt feel completely uncomfortable in public. Now I can barely style it. I cant seem to cover my scalp, especially when its wet. I try not washing it everyday but it just gets so oily because there's so little hair to absorb it. I dont know if its my diet because I eat fairly well. And I know people who eat terribly and have a full luscious head of hair. I dont notice it falling out all over the place, it just doesnt seem to be replenishing itself. My scalp is also extremely sensitive. I just dont know what to do. Im at my wits end. Ive studied how to style thin hair but these chics all have twice as much hair as I do. It makes me feel worse about my situation. I've developed serious self esteem issues because of this in the past few months. Im waiting for a dermatologist appointment but does anyone have any advice in the mean time?
