Cupuacu butter (theobroma grandiflorum) is found in the Amazon rainforest located in South America.
Cupuacu butter is derived by pressing the seeds of the cupuacu tree. It’s a rich yellow color with a light texture.
Cupuacu butter is featured prominently in book 5 of the Healthy Hair Care Series, Natural Butters for Hair. Learn more HERE.
Is Cupuacu Butter Good for Hair?
Cupuacu butter is excellent for hair. It is moisturizing and nourishes dry and brittle hair.
It also promotes elasticity and works great on fine-textured hair with light density.
How Do You Use Cupuacu Butter for Hair?
Cupuacu butter is excellent for use as a hair sealing butter. Mix it with a little bit of oil and fragrance oil for a nice scent.
The kind of oil you add depends on your current hair needs.
For instance, if your hair is dry and damaged, you can add oils like babassu oil, camellia oil, grapeseed oil, and shea nut oil.
For fragrance, lavender essential oil and vanilla oil work wonders. You can check out raw cupuacu butter HERE.
