My face is oily. So oily that my nose beads drops of oil 5 minutes after having a shower. My forehead is a permanent gloss. I have tried many face washes,I have a good diet...I really don't know what to do!

As for my hair, also very oily! I've been trying not to wash it every day and use dry shampoo but it hasn't really been working.

What can I do!!!

Try aloe vera gel. It's a pretty good moisturizer and prevents acne. (The root cause of over-secretion of oil is usually dry skin, so nipping the problem in the bud, so to speak.)
