Bucks Co Dreadlock Products


Dread Products

Hello all!I recently purchased and used two procucts from Bucks County Soaps. Specifically, I bought their shampoo bar, Goddess, and the pink Himalayn sea salt spray.The products were mailed out promptly and the handwritten note from Vicki was a thoughtful touch. A sample of Nag Champa scented soap was included which I also found thoughtful and intelligent on her part.The bar itself is rather large, lol, and doesn't fit into a traditional soap protector but that's really my only (and extremely trivial) complaint. The scent is lovely! For me, I notice the scent of grapefruit first and then the floral notes. It's a clean, crisp, and moderate scent, not heavy at all.As for performance, it doesn't lather much for me but I know that isn't an indicator of inefficacy because I could feel it coat my hair and after the shower it left my dreadies feeling super soft and light. Even in my horribly hard water it cleaned my hair and rinsed out completely. The best part was it left that delicious scent in my hair. I've missed the feeling of having my hair smell fresh and yummy after a shower. Essential oils just didn't stick around long enough. I'm satisfied with this product.The sea salt spray also has me satisfied. I won't continue this but I applied it to my damp hair after both showers and it seems to not have any adverse consequences besides itching after a day. It too has a light smell but it doesn't linger. I thought the product left my hair feeling crisp and ready to tangle just like after a day in the ocean. In time I will know if it is helping - or rather HOW MUCH it is helping -and will update more then.Overall, I have to say Vickie does make a great line of products. I highly recommend them and am looking forward to trying different scents!Sorry for any typos, this was written on the fly from my phone. Best wishes!

Dreadlocks & Discrimination: Interview Questions


General Talk

1.). My dreads are six months old. I tnr'd them. I wanted them to help me humble myself and remind myself that I'm beginning a journey into my new religion/way of life.2.). Most people wondered why I'd do such a thing to my hair. "I was so pretty/my hair was so pretty" before.3.). Lol, yes... I was sick and went to Panera. The cashier made fun of me for being high. ?? And once I was stopped at a gas station, my friend went inside and overheard the manager telling the employee to make sure the camera was on, he didn't like the way I looked. An old guy once told me I was disrespectful for presenting myself in such a dismal.shape then proceeded to ask if I went to church like I look. Things like that.4.). I use Jason's Tea Tree shampoo and Vickie's Goddess dread bar. I wash at least three times a week (after work) due to where I work. They're definitely clean.5.). I get a lot of, "Wow. I didn't know white people hair could dread with/without washing it!" And most people assume I'm a liberal, left-wing fanatic, hippie. Then of course the association with drug culture. I know the first one is just ignorance and can be helped. The latter isn't necessarily true. I'm not a liberal anyway.

Possibly a dumb tech question.

Another Post About Anxiously Awaiting


General Talk

Ah nice! I'm really excited to read this! Does it leave a scent in your locks? I'm not going to lie, I miss those days... I miss my Aveda shampoo. :(Anyway...... They say it works in hard water - and we have TERRIBLE water here - so I'm curious to see those results as well.

Root Separating


Dread Maintenance

^ What Supa said! I pull mine apart after I wash them. Just pull until you can't bear to pull any further. Eventually you will notice a network of hairs connecting the roots, this is normal, healthy, and necessary for natural locks. Personally, I like the way it looks too because there's no scalp showing.All my best!

Dreadlocked Patients


General Talk

Have you ever considered what you would like to happen to your locks should you become admitted as a patient to a hospital for some time and unable to care for yourself? What about if you end up in a long-term care facility?I really hadn't myself until the other day. I was assigned a young pt who was unresponsive with shoulder length locks. A part of my job responsibility is washing/bathing pts. We use leave in shampoo/conditioner. I didnt wash the pt's hair that day and instead talked to pt's mother about what she wanted used to maintain pt's hair. In the hospital and long-term care settings, we are either unfamiliar or unprepared to care for dreadlocks. Not to mention the question of how to let them dry while you're bedridden.Just a thought.
