Help me regrow my hair.

I think my hair is too thin and it's not related to genetics, what could it be? I'm a 30 year old female.

All the men (and women) in my family have thick, full heads of hair...my brother, my dad, both of my grandfathers, so I know it's not genetics. I just feel like my hair is way too thin for my age and it's really bothering me. A few people have even commented on it so I know it's not all in my head. Has this happened to anyone and have you successfully treated and saw hair regrowth?
I know I should probably start with getting a physical and getting blood work done and getting my thyroid checked. Is there anything else I can do?
For the record, my hair is not over processed. I wash it everyday with organic shampoo and then condition it. I do not blow dry and or put products in my hair. Once every few months I'll dye it with a semi-permanent hair color.
I feel like I eat a healthy diet and my BMI is 22.5. I do feel tired a lot no matter how much sleep I get though.
