I'm only 20 but the hair along my hairline is thinning dramatically because I have to wear a very tight bun everyday to work, any advice on what to do?

I'm going to give you some tips black women use to grow back & preserve our edges. I don't know if you're black or not, but you'll find that following hair care tips from black YouTubers you'll find they use a lot of items that involve natural ingredients and items that aren't harsh on their hair that involve harsh chemicals.
1) Stop wearing tight hair styles. Seriously, don't do anything/too much with your edges because over manipulation is bad over all. Try to find a hair style that's a lot easier on your scalp that will last a while. Find a protective style that works for your hair and your occupation.
2) Spritz with a water mixture like aloe Vera gel + water. rub in a bit of tea tree oil (it's good for stimulating the scalp and is quite anti-bacterial) so the next item won't been too thick and clog your follicles.
3) Rub in black castor oil wish is great for hair growth. Do it day and night for 5-8 minutes.
4) Wrap your hair at night. Sleeping on pillow directly even if they have a case is bad for your hair. Twist your hair (not super tightly) and put it up in a bonnet or a silk scarf.
5) Don't wash your hair too much. Co-wash once a week, and use shampoo maybe once a month, and on your wash days don't be afraid to use a super moisturizing hair mask.
If you don't want to rub in oils separately you should buy an applicator bottle which you can find at Walmart, or a beauty supply store, and mix the peppermint oil, rosemary, tea tree oil, vitamin E oil, vitamin C oil, and the Jamaican black castor oil. Make sure the castor oil you buy doesn't have salt or added scents/ingredients. A good brand of castor oil is this:
