Cocoa Butter has a delightful fragrance and is a marvel to give some texture to hair while keeping it hydrated.
It is extracted from a broad been, and as you know, is mainly used to produce chocolate.
The white cocoa butter is also used in a large variety of skin and hair products thanks to its numerous benefits.
It contains a lot of beneficial fatty acids such as vitamin F.
It also contains vitamin E which is a great anti oxidant, soothing and regenerating benefits.
Cocoa butter contains phytosterols ( anti oxididant).
Another interesting compound is squalene, squalene helps the “lipidic cement” of the skin to regenerate.
It only melts over 35°C, so it is a great help to sheathe your hair.

How to use your hair balm
version 1: hair deep conditioner mask
apply on your scalp and hair, make some smooth massages, let it set for 15 minutes, shampoo
version 2: leave on conditioner for shiny hair and to calm frizzy hair
After shampoo, take a small amount of butter on the palm of your hands and rub your palms together. Scrunch into hair ends, and if needed on the length, avoiding roots.
Your hair will love it…naturaly
