How do I tackle an oily scalp and dry hair?

Iam an 18-year-old girl and I have combination hair i.e. oily scalp and dry hair,which gets frizzy when I’m out, but I love leaving my hair untied. Please suggest a proper regimen and hair products I can use. I would prefer something natural. 
An oily scalp and dry, frizzy hair means you need to take extra care of your hair. This is because, if you use a strong shampoo to eliminate oil from your scalp, you may end up having drier hair and if you use a very mild shampoo, you will not get the oil out. But you still have options. One way is to use different shampoos for your hair — a normal one for your scalp and a mild one for your hair. This will help you keep both parts happy. But if this is too much of a hassle, you can use a mild shampoo and wash your hair twice a week to keep the oil away and not let your hair get too dry. You will have to condition your hair well, only the strands and tips and not the scalp to make it less frizzy. Another good trick is to only wash your scalp with a shampoo and not the hair every time you take a hair wash. This too will help calm the frizz. 
Once this routine is sorted, you can make use of simple home remedies for your hair to tackle both problems. 
Oily scalp
In order to control the oil on your scalp, make use of tea bags. Make sure they are warm and not too hot and apply them to your scalp. They contain an astringent substance called tannic acid. This helps to prevent the build-up of excessive oil on the scalp by tightening the pores. Leave it on for a few minutes and then wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Regular use of this remedy will lessen the oil on your scalp.
Frizzy hair
If you are looking for a quick and effective tip, you can simply apply some aloe vera gel on your tips and leave it on. This calms the frizz and also helps keep dirt away. Since you like leaving your hair open, this will really work for you. If you want to apply hair packs, make one using eggs. Beat 2 eggs, mix in about 2 tablespoons of almond oil and half a cup of curd; stir to get a pasty mass and massage this into the hair. Cover with a plastic cap for about 30 minutes and then wash with warm water and a mild shampoo.
