Product: Brazilian Cupuacu Butter Pomade
The premise and claims (from Dezign Ayuan Naturals):
The best moisturizing and concentrated pomade. Bring those dry dull tresses back with this pomade. We love to pair this with our Dezign Define Curly Pudding. This can be used as a body butter. Keep those ends sealed with this pomade.
Ingredients: Brazil Nut Butter, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit , Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Theobroma grandiflorum (Cupuacu) Butter, Beeswax, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Fragrance.
Size(s): 2 oz, 8 oz
Price(s): $5.00, $12.00
Consistency: Deceiving! It appears to be thick and creamy; however it melts down to an oil when emulsified.
Smell: Slightly nutty
Ease of use: Even though this appeared to be thick, it was not. If you are heavy handed, use less than what you think you will need. It melts down quickly and easily. There is no need to smooth excessively.
Slip: The product really doesn’t have slip consistency, but it does liquefy and cling to the hair.
Moisture capacity: Seals the moisture in well
Versatility: This can be used to do twists or braids and the website says locs as well. I used this as a styler on dry hair to re-twist my hair nightly. I also used this as a pre-shampoo treatment, and I used to seal the ends of my braids.
Final Verdict: I liked this pomade a lot. My dry hair had a noticeable sheen and my hair doesn’t shine. The beeswax did not make the pomade sticky even though it is a key ingredient. It washed away well; I didn’t feel as if it was coating my hair. Very nice.

“WOW” sums up my overall thoughts for the items that I was sent to review! I tried the items on freshly washed hair, and I have been maintaining my hair with them for the last three weeks. My braid out was FAB and looked great the next day after I removed my braids. As the days pass, it’s more important to me for my hair to be pliable and retain moisture, even more than definition. Although I didn’t maintain my hair as well as I could have by redoing it at night, I’m enjoying how it’s holding up. Coconut oil and protein usually don’t agree with my hair, but I can say that my hair strands were not hard, but soft. I look forward to trying more items in this product line.
