Troy Polamalu, strong safety for the Pittsburgh Steelers, has insured his famous head of hair for $1 million. Insurance company Lloyd's of London awarded Polamalu a policy to insure his instantly recognizable locks, which reportedly haven't been cut in more than seven years.

Polamalu, a spokesman for Head & Shoulders shampoo, will be protected from football-related hair incidents by the policy. Proctor & Gamble, parent company of Head & Shoulders, is paying for the policy, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
