Welcome. Wax is extremely unhealthy for your scalp and hair. A good healthy shampoo won't fix that problem. All wax does is creates an illusion of locks. Because it hardens, it makes them feel more mature, but the hair is still not tangled any more than it was the first day wax was applied.
Wax is a hydrocarbon, which means that the only way to wash it out is to use a detergent. And because it's in your hair and trapped there, it requires a lot of scrubbing and time. Normal soaps won't get wax out.
As far as shampoo's go... Dreadlockshampoo sells the best. Dr. Bronners is good if you have soft water. But won't rinse out well in hard water.

Welcome. Don't think about yourself as not having locks yet. As soon as you start growing them, you have locks. They just don't look mature yet. They are baby locks, but still locks. So what if they don' look that way to others. You know what they are
