Head & Shoulders take out a $1 Mil insurance policy on Troy Polamalu’s hair


While Troy Polamalu is worth plenty to the Steelers, he may actually be worth just as much to hair-care company Head & Shoulders.

Or at least his hair is.

The company has taken out a $1 million dollar insurance policy on the safeties hair to ensure his trademark locks won’t get damaged during the NFL season.

The company made the announcement Monday, noting that it was the first time in history that an insurance policy of this type had been ordered. According to a press release from Head & Shoulders, his hair is so thick that, end to end, it spans 1,100 football fields and can hold approximately 24,062 pounds.

“Head & Shoulders has gone above and beyond by insuring my Samoan locks for a cool $1 million dollars,” Polamalu said. “This reinforces that my full and thick hair is unstoppable.”

Polamalu became a spokesman for the company last year. He has not cut his hair in seven years.
