NFL’s Troy Polamalu’s Locks Insured for $1 Million

3 Sep

It seems logical that Head & Shoulders would want to keep their number one spokesman’s hair looking great, but the beauty brand and “official shampoo of the NFL” has taken it to the urban legend level by taking out a $1 million insurance policy on Troy Polamalu’s 35-inch curls.

The Pittsburgh Steelers player – who hasn’t had a trim in over eight years – confirmed the Lloyd’s of London policy’s veracity recently to People Magazine. “It’s like J.Lo’s insured butt!” he joked to the magazine earlier this week.

I'm not mad at this one bit!!

Polamalu’s intense, Samoan locks come with an equally intense maintenance regimen. According to People, the NFL star spends 45 minutes tending to his hair before every game. “It’s correlated to what a warrior in the past would do to prepare for war,” he explains. “In that way you can almost get into the mind-way, preparing for some type of battle when you are doing your hair.”

Polamalu’s widely coveted mane even has an entire website dedicated to it, I, personally, would like to see a hair-off battle between Troy and NATTY MONSTAAA’s famous ‘fro. He’s so handsome! Who’s with me?

If you’re lucky enough to live in a city with H&M stores (like New York), you should be going nuts right now. Today H&M released an official statement via viral video announcing its fall collaboration with renowned Paris fashion house, Lanvin.

The multifaceted new collection will be seen in both men’s and women’s wear, and include 30 pieces and 15 accessories for women, and 25 pieces and 10 accessories for men. The two lines will be designed by menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver and Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz, respectively.

Everything in the highly-coveted collaboration will be unveiled on November 2nd, and will go on sale in the US and Canada on November 23rd.  The rest of the world is slated to see collection in stores three days later on November 23rd.

What a good look for H&M! I know I’ll barely be able to sleep until this collection hits stores, but the real question is how long am I willing to wait in line? Watch the official H&M x Lanvin announcement, here:

According to deputies, police smelled marijuana coming from their Maybach during a routine traffic stop. The controlled substances that were found in the search included methamphetamines and ecstasy in addition to marijuana. TMZ broke the story earlier this morning, along with a whole slew of embarrassing shots of the couple’s arrest.

The multi-platinum rapper is currently on probation for unlawfully possessing firearms following a 2007 arrest by federal agents while buying three machine guns in the parking lot of an Atlanta grocery store.

The couple was married on July 30th in Miami earlier this summer, but Tiny may see her man get put away again for this offense…
