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?
