one month old dreads and washing question

My dreads were one month old on Sunday!

Here I am with my family at Rocky Mountain National Park:

Here I am at one week with my boyfriend and little sister palm rolling my hair:

Here's the back of my head now:

I still have a lot of loose hair, but they're actually starting to look like dreads! 

I also have a washing question.  I used to wash my hair every other day, but since I've started doing it once a week my head accumulates this white stuff (I think it's oil).  I spend forever scratching it off when I'm in the shower, and when my hair dries there's always some left that looks like dandruff.  Is this normal?  Do I just need to scrub more until my scalp gets used to my new washing schedule?  Am I not rinsing enough?  I don't know. 

Anyway, thanks for looking!
