also only use conditioner on your ends not your whole head and never go to bead with wet hair
this might sound wierd but before each shower you can put jhonsons baby powder in your hair and brush it in (make sure you get it on your scalp to soak up the grease then take a shower...it helped me.
eat less sugar.

Here's an opposite advice compared to previous ones. One explanation why hair gets oily quickly is that shampoo (or any strong detergent) dries your scalp too much and body tries to compensate by producing oil fast. If you can allow some time for your hair to look worse (wear a hat or something) then you could try washing less often. And also you could try replacing harsh cleansing shampoo with a very mild one. It will not get hair clean on first use, but give it some time and you might see changes in the scalps oil-production.

I can't assure it works for you, everyone is different. I have quite normal kind of hair. But during times I washed my hair daily because of workouts I noticed how much quicker they got dirty if I spanned the time between washings. When I gradually went back to washing twice a week everything normalized again soon. I use eco-soap not shampoo, but probably that does not make so big difference (though the eco soap contains some oil, at least more than usual soap). I have also tried washing with baking soda, it seems bit milder cleansing than soap but might irritate sensitive skin. My preference for these alternative substances is mostly because I don't like the soft, straight and laid down smooth look a shampoo leaves my short hair, but I have read about baking soda that it is a good mid-way between conventional and totally shampooless. People often go shampooless because hair products have messed up how their scalp should produce right amount of oil.

A collection of home made cosmetics recipes can be found at http://makeyourcosmetics.com , but they seem more like home spa pleasures than problem solving to me, so I suggest google "no poo" to read about the shampooless approach first. No obligation to try that if it makes you feel awkward but at least you get some information from another angle than tv-commercials tell.

You should use a "clarifying shampoo". They are usually clear and a much stronger cleanser, meant for removing all the residue left behind from hair products. Neutrogena, Pantene as well as a few other companies sell good ones and just use them instead of regular shampoo.

The other thing you can do to minimize the oiliness between shampoos is to purchase some "dry shampoo". Its a powder that you can brush in and brush out. It works to absorb the oils on your hair and they work rather well. You can find them in hair salons.

I've had the same issue, and pretty much never use conditioner. My hair is long and is always silky soft, so its not so bad having this 'problem' as long as you use the right products.
They are hard to find but head and shoulders makes a shampoo for oily hair. One thing that helps is to use just a shampoo. Don't use any conditioner or shampoo and conditioner combos. The conditioner just moistens your hair and you have enough natural oils to do that yourself.
