Residue?

Was cleaning a friend's dreads and saw some greyish spots in the blonde. When I opened one up, there was this crap in it. She freaked and wanted it out, so I combed out the dread.

Is this residue? Mold? There are thin black strands, gunk (?), and thin white strands. She says she hasn't used anything but a clarifying shampoo from Shea Moisture. It was mostly up by the root area and covered maybe 5 inches of length of where I found it.

does the color match her sheets pillowcase sweater she wears or anything like that? tell her clarifying shampoos are not non residue in fact they leave residue themselves but they are very harsh and highly toxic (within what the law allows..barely) they are meant to strip heavy buildup..like that.. (so obviously isn't working) they are meant only to be used about once every 4 months at most

this looks like lint from a hat swater or t shirt..maybe

could also be from living in a city, the air in a city has tire rubber burnt oil and all sorts of other gunk that leaves a thick black gunk on your skin in your hair..and if you go barefoot for just 1 block you get black feet

you said you helped her clean her hair...why? this to me is an indication she doesn't do it herself very often?

my recommendation

www.dreadlockshampoo.com makes a charcoal 'detox' deep cleanse. its not on the site just order any other bar  and request a substitution

also get any other bar or liquid (liquid if young bar if mature they look young though)  after using detox once or twice wash with the other every few days

if theres a scent... get rot knot

otherwise try to match the color with anything cloth or wool she sleeps on sits on or wears regularly, if need be replace it or cover with a microfiber silk or satin cover
