Welcome to the community Maleny and to the best site on the web for healthy happy dreadlocks. You live in an area that has hard water. Dr. Bronners will slowly leave behind a residue because of that. Many dread shampoos and soaps do not work well with hard water. DreadlockShampoo.com has bars and liquid dread shampoos that were created by a member on this site, and were made with hard water in mind, they work excellent. I have hard well water. If you are not too sure on what to expect with your journey, I also did T&R and have a posting that may help you: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/just-starting-out-what-to-expect
Enjoy your journey and this site....Peace
