    Default White truffle oil anyone?

    I saw this in the store today and I was wondering if anyone has used truffle oil in their hair and if it has any benefits. They had both black and white truffle oils and both are mixed with grapeseed oil.

    That would be a horrible waste of a very expensive, wonderful oil infused with truffles. A drizzle of the oil is wonderful for flavoring food, if it's real. (and sometimes if it's not)

    O.o Not cheap. Also probably very strong-smelling. I wouldn't, really.

    It's amazing over pasta, but not sure I'd put it on my head.

    Yum! I'd just get some plain grapeseed oil for your hair, and save the delicious, expensive truffle oil to drizzle over your mushroom risotto and asparagus... now I'm hungry...

    ETA: And yes, it smells! It literally smells like a wild boar, so I don't know if you really want to attract female pigs with your hair...

    Yep, they smell like wild boar pheromones. Now, why that is delicious, I don't know, but it is!

    I've never had them. I'm very (cautiously) curious.

    Truffle oil REEKS. My biology teacher left a bottle of the stuff sitting on my desk (plus a tapeworm and an odd rock) during a lecture, and as a result I know almost nothing about the phylogeny of earthworms.

    Skip it. It's hideously expensive and won't give you any particular benefits. (Except, perhaps, a tribe of loving she-pigs, apparently... Not really a good thing to have following you around though...)

    Unless you're going to some high society party and want to smell like freaking rich. Which, I admit, might be fun. *Ponders*
    CLASSIC!
