While this recipe is great I would change a few issues.
1. I would not use cocoa butter, resulting from it being a sealant. It would not (or atleast there is just not evidence of it doing so) absorb into the hair. When doing a deep therapy you want the remedy to go “deep”, so you wish to solely use substances that shall be absorbed into the hair. I’d switch it with coconut oil, avocado butter or even simply freeze it with some coconut water and pop them out of the freezer when ready to use.
