Excitement is building for the upcoming Super Bowl XLV, with its on-field competition and athleticism.

Anyone interested in hair, however, is much more excited about the "Hair Bowl" that also will be going on. We at NaturallyCurly have long been fans of Troy Polamalu's gorgeous long curly locks, and now Polamalu's got hair competition. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has apparently signed an endorsement deal with Suave and its men’s shampoo. While Matthews's long blond locks aren't curly, they're nonetheless quite impressive.

We definitely hope the best hair wins!
