Dreadlocks Shampoo bar questions!

Hi Ive been washing with dreadheadhq shampoo left over from when I bought it for my old set years ago. I want to switch to something else and definitely don't want to support dhhq in any way. I also use acv/bs rinses. I see that everyone recommends the solid shampoo cars from dreadlocksshampoo. I read the ingredients though and have a few questions.

saponified oils of organic coconut, organic unrefined first press extra virgin olive oil, organic castor bean oil, beer, kaolin clay

I am worried about all the oil the shampoo bars contain. Wont this be too moisturizing for my dreads? I know many people condition regular hair with olive and coconut oils so this worries me that my knots will slip out.

Also clay does not seem like a good idea. Ive heard any kind of clay is not good i dreads. Just wondering if anyone could clarify?

Is it easy to lather these solid shampoos? Or do you rub them on the scalp directly?

To make soap one needs fat (animal or vegetable), hence the oils in the bar.

As for the clay, I believe the "clay is not good for dreads" comes from people who actually put clay in their hair to help dread it (like wax, etc.). A small amount of clay in a bar of soap shouldn't make a difference because it's rinsed out, not left in.
