Stringy, greasy hair even after washing - won't go away!

Hi everybody, I'm a 20 yr old women who's been dealing with this problem for about 4 months now and it is genuinely making me depressed so I need answers. My hair is stringy, greasy, and sticky (like clumpy) in the back no matter what I wash it in. It is also seems to be spreading. I've tried ketacozonale, t-gel, acv, baking soda, dish soap, nizoral, matrix scalp therapy, and clarifying shampoos. I'm at a loss. My derm was no help. I just went gluten free and am taking probiotics to see if this is linked to gut health (perhaps a fungal or yeast issue?). Potential culprits include seb derm and androgen over-production but I really don't know. Please please help I am at my wit's end.
