NFL Player Troy Polamalu is notorious for his supersized hair, his shaggy mane reaches a metre out in all directions and that’s when it’s curly! It’s so big it barely fits in his helmet and dozens of it tumbles out the back. Polamalu’s trademark hair won him a sponsorship deal with Head Shoulders, under the umbrella corporation of Proctor Gamble. I’m sure that the ‘multi national’ decided to protect their interests by taking out insurance on the Pittsburgh Steelers defender’s hair to the tune of $ 1m.
Whenever discolouring and natural hair loss, proctor and Gamble ok out the policy with Lloyds of London, the insurer should not reveal what the policy covers but experts assume it involves damage. In 2006 he was grabbed by Larry Johnson of the Kansas City Chief’s and pulled down by his hair as he was running for an uchdown after intercepting a pass.
