until now, i've been a roll-out-of-bed-into-the-shower, go-to-work-with-wet-hair, throw-it-into-a-tight-ponytail-by-midday type. i'm now trying hard to put juuust a little more effort into how i present myself to the world. any suggestions for working with my hair type? (details below)

i have medium thickness hair that is not straight and not quite wavy.
-if i brush it out while wet and air dry it, it has some body but no real consistent wave.
-if i brush it out and blow dry, it is pretty straight but slightly more voluminous, at least for a few hours.
-if i don't brush it and let it air dry, it has significant more wave and body, but gets tangled and eventually the wave mostly falls out.
right now it's medium length and i don't use any product. i shampoo it and condition the ends daily and it's greasy by that night/next morning.
what i'm looking for are suggestions about products, techniques, anything that might help me harness the little wave i have, or control the way it looks in general for a more consistent and better look. also interested in washing my hair less often, but wondering how long it takes it to adjust and dial down the oil, and what to do in the meantime.
