Hard to style thin hair, help!

I have thin, possibly very thin, 4A hair. I find it very hard to style. The only style I can seem to get away with is wash and go's because of the volume my curls create, everything else is too scalpy. I try to do braid outs and twist outs but even after fluffing and going through with a pick the parts are still very visible and it seems like there's nothing I can do to get rid of or cover them. Individual twist and braids look ridiculous on me because it's more scalp than braids/twist.
I wear wigs from time to time since I hate sew-ins (I go to the gym frequently and I like to be able to freely access my scalp and remove the hair whenever I want), but I find them to be annoying sometimes.
Does anyone have advice/suggestions? I hsve been diagnosed with alopecia areata by the way.
