Major Questions for Thin Curly Haired Male

Alright. Let me explain myself, I'm 15, Male and am going crazy about this. When I was younger, I always had thick straight hair. Always came in straight. Until about last summer, things changed, puberty? But my hair started going curly very slowly, and while it was going curly it was thin, flash forward to now my whole front and top is pretty much invaded as curls, but again, thin. The rest (sides around ears and back of hair) is a mix of wavy/straight sort of thin hair, some people like two argue those things.

But, that's where my worries lie, it's thin, especially the curls, they always kind of always were. My hairdresser told me this when it started to happen and she was worried for me, about balding, but then it wen't curly and I let it grow out and haven't seen her since.

I would also like to key note that I do use shampoo that is possibly not right for someone with my kind of hair, I use Aussie, a shampoo and conditioner I've always used even when my hair was straight.
Is this normal? In a male at least? To be thin? I'm worried, If I bald, oh boy, I'm not going to be so pretty.

I also recently changed some SOME stuff in my lifestyle, I take Vitamins because I don't eat a lot of veggies, let alone any at all, I will admit
I don't have much of a sleep pattern schedule over the summer either (9-10-11:00 AM ~ 1-2-3-4:00 AM)
Without pictures, a decent idea of what my looks like is young Bob Dylan (Long Hair; Curls)
My hair also has a mind of it's own so sometimes it's not as big or "poofy" as his.
(Can give pictures if you really want an idea)

Please help.
Well you have two biggies there that are going to affect everything about your body 1)veggies and 2) sleep.
There is just no replacing those. So I'd work on them both very hard. You can't even begin to imagine how important that is.

And there probably are things you could do routine wise to be more gentle in your hair. Have you read anything about co-washing or low poo washing yet?

Oh and you've established the density of your hair is thin but what about the hair itself. Is it fine? Course (more wiry)?

So you're saying your hair has gotten curlier, but you're also losing density?

It's best to see a dermatologist. It could be anything. Many people's curl pattern changes over a lifetime but thinning is a different issue. You really should seek a formal diagnosis.

And yes, please get sleep! I didn't sleep in highschool very much because of workload and it turned into years of depression. Please get your sleep and your veggies. If I could go back in time, I would get 8hrs nightly. ::hugs::

Given your age no hair thinning is not normal, IMO make an appointment your family doctor or a dermatologist.

Vegetables are not the be all and end all of nutrition, it's fine to eat more fruit than veggies as long as you eat from the full rainbow each day (dark green, blue/ purple, red, yellow/ orange). Beans or lentils count once per day, red onions, carrots, tomato paste, sweet potatoes, homemade smoothies and blended soups all count and most people will eat those even if not leafy greens. If you eat just one serving of produce a day now be strict about getting three a day, then work your way up slowly.

Having said that supplements do not replace a balanced diet, junk food can actually harm the body and this can show in skin hair and nails. Be sure you are eating plenty of oily fish, other seafood, plain natural dairy products, whole carbs (wholegrains/ beans/ lentils), nuts and seeds because these all supply essential nutrients that are not found in either vegetables nor vitamin supplements.
