Why does my hair always get greasy?

In brief: Skin oil
Each hair follicle has oil glands that secrete sebum which gets onto the hair. Sebum is a rather oily/greasy substance and is the cause.
Also, if you don't shampoo regularly enough this oil along with simple dirt and debris from the day can collect on the hair and make it feel oily/greasy.
