Suggest Remedy For Transient Hair Thinning

I would greatly appreciate an opinion from a doctor. I'm a 19 old male that is experiencing transient hair thinning, but mostly in the frontal portion of my scalp. For short periods of time, the quality of my hair changes drastically. My hair sometimes looks terrible in the morning and then a whole lot better in the afternoon. It is so strange. I'm studying medicine and have absolutely no idea what the cause can be.
I have tried the following: Very stict diet (Cutting out diary, all sugars and breads) - this help a little. I have used DHT blockers for 2 years. A natural remedy to slow my thyroid down ever so slightly, not that it's way to active. I drink a lot of vites, especially B-complex. I drank milk thistle - doesn't work. I don't wash my hair too often and use a high quality shampoo and conditioner. I don't experience excessive stress. I even resorted to trying a laser comb to no relief. Now I'm even trying horse shampoo.
My doctor claims that my testosterone levels are way too low, I contradict this statement - levels are above 400. Other hormones seem to be in a harmonic balance, proving hypopituitarism isn't a differential diagnosis. There is no chemical or heat strain on my hair.
I eat healthy, exercise a lot and am in good shape. I've tried all many oils (coconut, carrot and jojoba), but to no avail. I've done so much research, I have exhausted other options.
I you could think of something sensible to solve my dry and brittle hair, you will be my HERO!!! Thanks in advance.
