This is me. I have never been a cutiepie, but my hair has gotten compliments over the years, pretty much my main feature to get compliments, other than my hands and feet (when I was slim). I've got hypo, too, and I go through shedding phases. But ever since I hit my forties, it got worse. Sucks.
My mom never had much thinning until she was dying. My father made it to a couple weeks shy of turning 90 with no receding hairline and only minimal thinning and some graying.
But, my niece has alopecia and my sister lupus which sometimes causes her hair to drop out in patches.
I hate that my one good feature is sapping away...
Anyway, I didn't have any rosemary, but I made an MSM/sage concoction and put that on my scalp, then some condish. I'm sitting here letting it perk up there then will wash before bed. I also started taking Biotin and Flaxseed combo today (I had taken it on and off, but not faithfully). I also need to get faithful with the zinc (which I do tend to be dietarily deficient in). I wish I could take the MSM and the UltraNourishair, but can't, so I'm gonna see if I can tolerate it as a scalp paste when I precondish.
