Worried hair is thinning- what should I do shampoo/conditioner wise?
 
Im a 23 year old male with 3A hair. My hair has been feeling a little thinner and it has me a little paranoid. My hair is really dry and I need to at least put leave in conditioner in or else it is extremely frizzy. I only shampoo about 1-2 times a week (on the weekends to get product out of my hair) and I use conditioner daily. I have been using v05/suave naturals to co-wash and tressemme naturals conditioner as a leave in. I am wondering if maybe all of the alcohol in these conditioners is bad for my hair and causing it to be really dry/appear thinner? My brother is 25 and has the thickest, most dense hair ever and my dad is 60 still with all of his hair. However, my moms dad past away when he was very young and I got her genes and clearly have no idea if he was bound to bald or not. So I guess my question is what should I do to keep my hair the most healthy? And also limit the dryness because if I do as little as pick a piece of my hair it turns into frizz. I also have been getting professional trims regularly so I know thats not the issue.

Have patience it's Christmas, more people will be around later in the week.

I think hair loss, especially gradual loss, is probably more of an internal thing. Yes product build up or a dry scalp or an allergic reaction can be behind hair loss, but I think diet, genetics, and male pattern baldness are more liking culprits of thinning over time. Genetics...well there is nothing you can do about that, but diet is a huge one. Hair is probably the least important part of your body, so if you're not eating enough fruits and veggies it's not going to grow very nice or thick.

Pay attention to the hair your losing, is it breaking off or is it more like shedding. Dry hair breaks off. I have sensitive skin so I try to stay away from non-fatty alcohols in products.

My hair isn't falling out/shedding/breaking off at all, it just feels a little thinner up top compared to the sides and back and my hairdresser said that. Also, when it's wet I can see some scalp but I don't know if that's more to do with having curly hair and the curls not lying evenly to cover up your scalp. Is using leave in conditioner every day bad for your hair? I hate the idea of putting products in my hair every day but if I don't at least put some conditioner in my hair will be extremely frizzy.
