Asked by an Internet video reporter how he keeps his hair so touchable, Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu says, "Well, I condition it every day. I also shampoo quite a bit."

"It's important for me to have strong hair in case somebody pulls it," the famously maned player adds.

In other Polamalu hair news, Head & Shoulders recently announced that they were insuring the famous mop for $1 million.

"As a second-year spokesperson for the brand, Head & Shoulders recognizes the value of Troy’s extremely full and thick Samoan locks, so together with Watkins Syndicate at Lloyd’s of London, the world’s leading insurance agency, they’ve created the first ever insurance policy to protect his iconic mane for the entire NFL season," says a press release.

Polamalu has not cut his hair in seven years; end-to-end, his hair would span 100 football fields.

I'm kinda concerned and questioning how a product that contains: Ammonium lauryl sulfate, Dimethicone, Ammonium xylenesulfonate, and Ammonium laureth sulfate be good for long term hair care? I just read another article on NaturallyCurly.com that states how Sulfates are surfectants that not only wash away the bad stuff but also are so harsh that they can permanently wash away the natural oils etc that support the overall strength of the hair.
