How do you get rid of a chronic "oily" hair smell?

Even if I've just washed my hair, it has a strong oily smell that's noticeable by my family. I have curly hair and have had dandruff in the past which I tried to treat, but I never worked out a serious treatment regimen for it. I have generally oily skin and easily clogged pores, and treat my acne through retin-a which seems to work. My hair doesn't look oily for 2-3 days since it's curly and easily dried out by products.
My hair smells no matter when I wash it or what I use, whether it's dandruff shampoo from the store or no shampoo (tried just washing it with light conditioner) or something very harsh. The previous smelly hair question didn't offer any solutions I haven't tried. How can I cure this?
