Care and feeding of my hairs

Due to a combination of experimentation and laziness I have pretty long hair for the first time in ever. How do I care for it properly?

Detail: I am of British ancestry, my hair is very fine, brown, mostly straight (used to be curly, but alas no more), and not too thick. It falls just below my shoulderblades. I'm basically just always keeping it in a sloppy bun these days because I don't have enough hair for nice ponies/braids/updos and it never looks right if I wear it down. The top is too greasy and the ends are too dry, and it has no body at all. I think I might also be losing a fair bit of hair to breakage/rough treatment.
I am a tomboy so I don't use product (aside from dry shampoo occasionally) and my hair care routine is basically daily washing/conditioning followed by a detangling brush and then air dry. I just got a boar hair brush to brush at night because I hear that will help with the dry ends? I dunno. Help!
