So I got my shipment today and immediately tried the cupuacu butter as an end treatment/pre wash treatment. As you can see in the attached picture (I hope, my lighting is horrible), it's greasy for my type of hair (long, wavy, and dry but curls very easily). However, it's a prewash so I am not concerned. My major goal is to enhance my curls by hydrating them so they aren't dry and frizzy anymore, as well as to enhance my scalp health. That's where the ucuuba butter comes in. I am using it as a pre wash as well to give my scalp nutrients and moisture. I've noticed my scalp has been irritated lately and over producing oil --probably due to me being dehydrated lately. But in any case, I am very curious if any of you have tried ucuuba on your scalp and what it's like for you? This is a major test run for me. I am going to comment with my update after I wash out my hair tonight to give my thoughts on the first run, and then probably keep adding what I think over the next few weeks. Thank you for letting me be a part of your test group, Chrys!

I've used ucuuba butter as a pre-poo. It penetrates the hair a lot like coconut oil and so it is a good prewash. It will also improve the tensile strength of your hair, making it stronger. I like to mix it with a highly emollient butter like Bacuri butter and leave it on overnight under a plastic processing cap and a satin bonnet for a deeply conditioning treatment before shampooing it out the next morning. I like to add Cupuacu butter to my hair as it starts feeling dry to rehydrate it. Works beautifully to rub it in your hands and smooth some on the hair before jumping in the shower. If you leave your hair uncovered, it will absorb the water, leaving the hair moisturized. I love it!

You can also add Rosemary essential oil and lavender essential oil to your butter/oils to treat an oily scalp.

There is absolutely no way to use ucuuba by itself, so you need to research what your scalp needs and mix with ucuuba. Amanda's suggestion to try essential oils is a good one.
