Personally, there are lots of specialist dread shampoos on the market, such as ones from Raw Rootz, or Dollylocks which you may want to try. These shampoos are residue free, which means if you are washing your hair very regularly then you won’t get a build up of shampoo residue in your dreads. Personally, if I wash my dreads once a fortnight or less I find that using a natural soap works well for me.  If I’m washing more regularly then I use Raw Rootz which is one that I also stock in my salon. Finding the right products for your locks is trial and error, and involves working out what your own personal routine is, how your scalp responds to being in dreads, how oily your hair is etc.
