Well, it’s not new to hear of celebrities and sports personalities getting their body parts insured. Now joining the likes of JLo’s multi-million dollar-insured butt and David Beckham’s legs is Troy Polamalu’s hair. Yes, famed shampoo brand Head & Shoulders have taken out a staggering $1 million insurance policy on Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu’s hair! Polamalu is the brand’s spokesperson, and his trademark hair certainly makes him the right choice for a hair products brand. The player has not cut his hair in the past seven years and even has a website dedicated to his hair, Troyshair.com. Head & Shoulders has taken the policy with Watkins Syndicate at Lloyd’s of London. The first-ever such insurance policy taken by Head & Shoulders will protect the player’s hair for the entire NFL season.
Polamalu seems rather enthusiastic about this policy and says, “Head & Shoulders has gone above and beyond this year by insuring my Samoan locks for a cool $1 million. This reinforces that my full and thick hair is unstoppable.”
