ITA with Coco. You seem to have a good handle on the issue. As far as thinning hair, there could be a number of reasons that could be happening from chemical treatments, to dyes, to nutrition, to medical issues. Seeing a dermatologist is a decent SECOND/THIRD step. Optimizing your diet and products/regimen, should be the initial steps. The painful tingling you describe may be a allergic reaction if this is a new onset thing. I would try and look into that.
There is a great shampoo I stay pimping and it's worked for so many different people-- and it def works for thinning hair is Deity Plant Shampoo for Hair Loss. Three people (my mom, my BF, and his mom) had major thinning issues and their hair has picked up so beautifully over this year it's unbelievable. It's also great for scalp issues as well (I have bad psoraisis and it's been the only thing after yrs of doctors, and such thats worked). Look into it after you've ruled out everything.
