What’s The Loss Of Your Hair Worth?

When I saw the words 'hair insurance', I thought "What a great idea! Finally people who suffer from any type of genetic baldness can relax." So I was disappointed when I followed the link and read the article. Turns out it's not some fabulous hair loss coverage plan. Instead, Troy Polamalu (who plays Football for the Pittsburgh Steelers) has gotten his long, flowing locks insured for one million dollars. The insurance is covered by Lloyd's of London and was purchased by shampoo brand Head and Shoulders. You can read more about it here.

I find this kind of thing to be absurd. Polamalu, if you want to do something priceless with your hair, donate it to Locks of Love.

I had to look it up! The Aussie brand hair insurance is a leave-in conditioner. Cute 😊

Why did I keep reading that "Leave-in Container Spray which made no sense unless it was an Aussie thing!

Oh! Coffee's ready.

the money would be better spent assigning a bodyguard to follow rothelsberger around and keep him away from women.

Have to comment on this one.
Troy Polamalu did NOT buy the insurance policy on his hair, Head and Shoulders did. He's the spokesperson for them and dumb or not, they have the right to insure their "spokeshair". He's of Samoan descent so his hair is long in honor of that. He pays the price during the season - gets "hair" tackled. He's one of the nicest guys and does a LOT of charity work around da Burgh, tho' not including Locks of Love :cheese:

Don't get me started on Mr. "Keep your pants zipped and stay outta bars" Roethlisberger... :zip:
