My husband has been growing his locks for about 2 years now. 6 months ago he started washing his hair using this shampoo. Every time he would get done using it we noticed this white build up on his hair. We figured he had been sweating a lot and wasn't rinsing the shampoo clean. I finally offered to help him shampoo his hair. This product does not wash clean what so ever. It got stuck inside his dreads even though I never actually put any shampoo directly on his dreads. It started turning white, stuck to his hair and scalp, and had consistency of hair gel. I ended up using another type of shampoo to get all the residue out. Do NOT use this product, especially if you have dreads.
