File this one under wacky firsts, but totally true:
Head & Shoulders has just insured Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu’s hair through Lloyd’s of London for a cool one million dollars. As the mane man repping Head & Shoulders Hair Endurance for Men collection, Polamalu’s precious curls will be protected throughout this NFL season and is definitely a first for the sport. According to Procter & Gamble (makers of Head & Shoulders), Troy’s hair is so full and thick that end to end it spans 100 football fields—and he hasn’t cut it in over seven years!
When and if Troy Polamalu decides to get a little trim, I’d hate to be the stylist responsible for that head of hair, the pressure would be just too much. Troy’s hair even has it’s own website, Troyshair.com where you can enter to win NFL prizes including a Super Bowl XLV VIP package. I’m thinking he receives his fair share of razzing in the locker room over his hair, and then some. Breck girls, eat your heart out.
