Welcome. But the wax will completely stop locks from maturing. It holds down stray hairs and loops that are essential for knots to form.
If wax is left in locks, it will create a perfect environment for mold. Water gets inside your locks and just sits there. The wax prevents it from getting back out. When water sits, it decays organic matter. This is what happens in swamps. Your hair is organic. You are, essentially, creating a swamp on your head.
Also, wax is a hydrocarbon. It will NEVER wash out in normal soap and water. You need a detergent and months of scrubbing to get it all out.
Until it's out, you won't have locks. Your hair may look like locks, but it isn't tangled and knotted. Wax hardens and creates the illusion of mature locks because it's stiff. But locks should NEVER be hard or slimy.

it just glues hair together to look like dreads but prevents any actual dreading

Welcome, but you need to remove the wax immediately. It is one of the very worst things you can do for dreads. I don't know about your shampoo. You should be using the residue free kind. The BS/ACV wash is great.
