Genetics Related to Hairloss At Age 13? Oily Scalp ?

Can hair loss be caused by a really hot and extensively oily scalp? My hair itself is thin and is noticeable on the top. I am now 19 years old and i've been told that its been happening since I was 13. Is genetics the cause of hairloss at the age of 13? Thats when this whole ordeal started. That is also about the time when my hair started to become really oily. Literally, it would be only a matter of hours before my hair smelled like it hadn't been washed for days, due to the oiliness.

Can someone offer some suggestiosn as to what I could do?
