    I live in a Mediterranean country, where olive trees grow in public parks and boulevards.

    Sad to say, the best olive oil in the country is exported for hard currency.
    Is it possible to make superb olive oil from ‘standard’ olives?

    Great overview. I love using natural oils for hair care. When my hair feels extra dry I do a bit of deep conditioning using equal parts conditioner and coconut oil mixed. I know. Not 100% natural. But I work that in well, wrap my hair in a towel, blast it with my blow dryer to warm my strands to make them more receptive and give it a couple of hours to work its magic. Works wonders too. Leaves my hair soft and feeling so much healthier.
