Pittsburgh Steelers’ Troy Polamalu’s has a back-up plan when his football career comes to an end, and it’s growing out of his head.
Head & Shoulders, who he acts as a spokesperson for, just took out a $1 million insurance policy with Lloyds of London to protect Polamalu’s hair, which he has not cut in 8 years. If you can even call it hair. It looks more like a grizzly bear decided to take a nap on his head!
Polamalu reportedly takes 45 minutes to do his hair before a game, and he has a sense of humor about it.
“It’s correlated to what a warrior in the past would do to prepare for war. You have the Mongolians, the Japanese Samurai, the Spartans–all of these warriors with long hair…and in that way you can almost get into the mind-way, preparing for some type of battle when you are doing your hair.”
Polamalu, we’re not going to lie — your hair is insane. But that’s why we love it!
