Hair is certainly not the first thing to spring to mind when you think about American Football players. You would think that they'd be more likely to insure their legs, arms or other body parts needed for their career, but Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers has had his hair insured for a cool $1,000,000.
The American-Samoan player may be known for his skills on the field, but he's also renowned for his mane of thick, dark, curly hair it's hard to miss, and he hasn't cut it since the year 2000.
Polamalu reportedly spends 45 minutes on his haircare routine before each game. His hair is so impressive that a few years ago he became a spokesman for a shampoo brand, and the company protected his hair for $1 million, taking out an insurance policy with Lloyds of London.
It's not as crazy as it sounds hair is considered part of the jersey in American Football, and opposing team players have been known to tackle the Super Bowl-winning safety by the hair. In 2006, Larry Johnson of the Kansas City Chiefs tackled him by his hair during a 49-yard interception return.
