Oily Hair, HELP!

I have a lot of thin hair. If that makes sense. The strands themselves are thin but I have tons of hair. I guess it's the weight of it all that's causing all this oil build up. I need some suggestions. I do dye it, I recently went from platinum back to a semi natural brunette. I am tired of washing it everyday, please help! What products can give me a few more days with out turning into a total oil ball?!

OH! And also try not to touch your hair throughout the day. I know, it's hard, but the oils from your hands can transfer to the hair and make it extra greasy.

Girl! You need some dry shampoo! There's a really nice one from the Elizabeth and James perfume line that's available at Sephora. It smells like a dreaaaam.


(Pssst! -- Batiste makes an amazing one, but unfortunately Sephora doesn't carry that brand. You can find it at your local CVS, Wallgreens, Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart etc.)

Second the dry shampoo suggestion.  I have tried a few and my fave is the Bumble & Bumble pret a powder.  Sprinkle on roots at night before bed and it sucks up extra oil and also gives you some volume.  There is a small size if you want to give it a whirl before committing to the regular bottle.
