I know that in Trinidad and Tobago getting pure coconut oil can be difficult,, unless you outsource or make it yourself. We usually get the coconut oil that we use around Divali time to fill the deyas. Although it says PURE Coconut Oil, it can smell rancid which may be due to improper storage.

I found this post on NaturallyCurly.com by Samantha Berley that explains using Olive Oil for hair. Hope it is helpful.
It’s a well known fact that, olive oil can be a fantastic conditioner for hair but there are many other things about this essential oil that make it a great go-to for hair care. Olive oil is one of the top emollients that is known to penetrate the hair better than others. That doesn’t just mean that it nourishes and conditions. An olive oil treatment can improve the elasticity and strength of your hair far better than other essential oils.
There are other even lesser known facts about olive oil. For instance, olive oil is not just an average emollient. It contains anti-inflammatory properties that promote scalp health and prevent dandruff. What’s more, olive oil is not likely to cause an allergic reaction, which makes it easier on sensitive skin and hair.
