22 year old female with hair loss?

I am 22 female, and imy hair is thinning to the point where you can see right through the roots, right to the scalp.
I have noticed it when i was 17, but it was nothing really that noticable. I thought it was because i dyed my hair alot and i’ve always had fine hair to begin with.

When i was 19 I got pregnant, and within 6-8 months after my child was born, It got out of control. I had to change my hair color of bright red and go to a salon to have it professionally done blonde, wich the color looks awful on my skin tone..But it’s the only color that will hide the thinning hair. My hair dresser said that my actual hair is very healthy and my scalp shows no signs of damage (But he isn’t a doctor )…But it’s starting to show even with the blonde hair.

The thinning is in my crown area, and it’s spreading to the back of my head slowly. My hairline is fully in tact,
My hair isn’t falling out at all, it’s just slowly thinning. I dont have any kinda excesive shedding at all. It’s just slowly thinning out, and I dont know why?

Sometimes i’ve noticed a horrible itching sensation where the thinning is.

I’m terrified, i’m only 22 years old, and having to wear a wig. I dont have money to see a doctor, or i would.

I know it could be Female Pattern baldness (It does run in my family) But the itchyness plus i’m so young! Also It all happend after I had my child, Makes me think it’s something more then that. And can this be cured? Can I get my hair back?
I’m desperate!!!! D:

I am scared to try Womans Rogain becasue i’ve heard horror stories that it can make your hair loss worse.

My mom is waiting on settlement money for something and when she gets it she said she would take me to a doctor or help me get a hair transplant. Would that really work?

Thank you for your opinions and help. It’s really devestating.
Im just so miserably depressed over this. I used to love to color and style my hair, it was my pride and joy. It was the only thing i really liked about myspace. I’m so sad, All i can do is where it back in a headband and keep it such a light shade of blonde so it’s not as noticable, but slowly…That wont even work. I dont know what to do, or where to turn. It makes me sick to my stomach. Going out with friends or doing anything like going out to dinner feels more like a burden then anything, because I dont want anybody to see me. I know i sound vain and selfish…but It just sickens me to my core. I just have to hope and pray that I can eventually get the money together to see a doctor and this can be fixed somehow. Loosing your hair is honestly one of the most emotionally devestating thing, one can experience.

Thank you for letting me rant, I just need to get it out of my system.

Thank you all so much for your help. I was reading up on PCOS (Polycistic Ovarian Syndrom)

I have every single symptom, and if i do have this, I can get on meds and it will correct my hairloss and many other problems along with it.

I appreciate each and every one of your answers and opinions. Thank you 🙂
