See your family doctor or a dermatologist if you suspect your hair is shedding from the roots more than previously or is getting thinner. Anything can cause shedding if you are sensitive to that product or ingredient. If you examine the hairs do they all have a white root or are they actually breakage?
For growth eat a nutrient dense, varied and balanced wholefood diet, lose the processed food. Regular scalp massage and daily physical activity to increase circulation to the scalp. Aim to consistently meet or exceed your government's recommendations for healthy living. Biotin megadosing may do more harm than good, people can get side effects like acne or kidney failure.

Fine and thin hair tends to do well with products containing hydrolysed protein, this strengthens the hair, boosts body and wave. It does not do well with very high heat as all the keratin straightening processes require, nor with other chemical services. You might be best learning to work with and love your natural curl pattern.
