I’m sure you’ve seen the Head & Shoulders commercials featuring Troy Polamalu and his long flowing locks. That incredible mane is now insured for a whopping $1 Million! Seriously! Check out more photos plus a video of Troy Polamalu below.
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu’s hair has long been the topic of discussion. You either love it or you hate it, and I for one love it! I would love to have his gorgeous long locks!
Polamalu became the Head & Shoulders spokesman two years ago. Procter & Gamble took out a $1 million Lloyd’s of London insurance policy on the 29 year old star’s hair. In a statement released by P & G, they said:
“They’ve created the first ever insurance policy to protect his iconic mane for the entire NFL season.”
If Lloyd’s of London sounds familiar, you may remember that they are the same company that insured Entertainment Tonight host Mary Hart’s sexy legs. As far as what would constitute a claim to collect on that $1 million, well that seems to be hush hush.
Polamalu has gotten some flack from his teammates since word got out about his million dollar hair. Troy said, “They’ve taken a couple of strands — you know, $5 strands, $10 strands of hair here and there.”
You can’t miss him when he’s on the playing field, his long black hair can be seen peeking out of his helmet and runs along the back of his uniform. He wears it that way for every single game and it’s his way of honoring his Samoan roots (pun intended, ha ha). You can see a GREAT picture of his beautiful mane here!
You may remember his hair was pulled by Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson during an October 2006 game. He was trying to bring Polamalu down after he had caught an interception. Pulling hair is not against NFL rules. I’m sure Lloyd’s of London will be watching Troy’s games closely, I mean watching Troy’s hair closely this upcoming season, eh?
