If there is a higher percentage of detergent in the product you are using, it can be quite effective as an oily scalp shampoo.

The treatment which you use for oily hair will vary depending upon the severity of it. There are hair products especially designed for oily hair which are not as moisturized as some other products. You should also avoid over brushing your hair, and cleaning your hair brush every now and again is a great idea.
Brushing too often is also not a good idea as, although when you have healthy hair, brushing often makes it look nice and healthy, it does stimulate the oil glands. When oily hair is already producing too much oil, the last thing you want to do is stimulate the glands even more! So always avoid brushing too much.
Some problems which can be caused through severe oily hair include the hair falling out. This is particularly true in men over the age of thirty five. Oily hair can also lead to dandruff which again can cause all kinds of other problems.
