Hi fist time poster here!

Well i've gone No Poo for over a month. Last time I used shampoo was August 15th.

First I tried the BS+WV mixes to wash and rinse.At first, I was surprised how nice & clean my hair actually looked. Then i realized that my hair was a bit static-y and dry so i played around. I also tried using coconut oil on ends but it was not v good, now it was too oily and kind of gross.
As time passed, I noticed my scalp got greasy the day after washing but I tried to extend the days of not washing my hair so instead I used talcum powder and dry shampoo and it looked slightly better but not perfect. I changed from White Vinegar rinse to Lemon Juice + bit of honey and it is less drying and it looks better.

But a month passed and I havent felt a lot of changes, meaning that my hair keeps getting oily as hell. If i up the BS, my hair gets dry and static-y.
Earlier today, i did a WO wash with a citrus rinse. After my hair dried, my scalp/roots looks a bit oily & dirty. It's not too noticeable but I am not a fan of how it looks.

I don't know what to do now. I am not very patient and I am such a newbie at this stuff so, help me, i guess? I don't want to go back to square one (using shampoo again). Maybe i should try for sulphate free shampoo for a pick me up?

About my hair: I have slightly wavy hair (it's 2a), it's mid-back length, fiine hair but kind of heavy & big.
