Oily Hair

I just started to let my hair dread naturally (neglect method). It's been 4 days since I've let water touch my hair and it's incredibly oily. The oilyness is not affecting the locks that are starting to form in the back of my head, but rather it's just keeping the rest of my hair (the roots, front and sides) thin and stringy. What should I do? Should I just wait it out with patience until my hair is trained to wait a week before washing (will that even happen with naturally oily hair?), or should I wash it or wet it more frequently, maybe with salt water or something to at least get rid of the oils? I have a tea tree shampoo for regular scalp washings...will that affect oilyness in the long-run, by any chance? I haven't used it yet.
