Hello,

I was just separating my hair and found a dread that felt really waxy/oily. I've never used wax, I have been using lush soap on it for a while and wondered if this was a buildup of residue? or is it just oils from my head and i haven't been cleaning it well enough? It does smell very mildly soapy, but i understand if no one can tell me with out seeing it. I don't know what residue feels like and I'm a little worried I've been using a bad shampoo for my dreads, so if someone could tell me what residue feels like when it occurs that would be of great help. I'm gonna do a really deep baking soda clean and see if that gets rid of the oiliness.

Acv will help clarify as well.. I only like to use bs 
And the acv about once a month I think it leaves 
My hair dry. So I use a more traditional shampoo.
I assume there are residues being left behind so I 
Do a deep clean with the bs and a acv rinse
