Polamalu’s hair is one of his most distinguishing characteristics, allowing him to be easily spotted on the field. In the CBS Playoffs Pre-game Show, Polamalu said the last time he had gotten a haircut was in 2000 at USC when a coach told him he needed one. On November 9, 2010, while appearing on Mike and Mike in the Morning, Polamalu said he had his most recent haircut seven or eight years prior.
In an October 15, 2006, game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Chiefs’ running back Larry Johnson pulled Polamalu down by the hair in order to tackle him. Although tackling a player by his hair is legal and does not alone constitute unnecessary roughness, Johnson was penalized for rising to his feet while retaining a grasp of Polamalu’s hair (pulling him up in the process).
Polamalu has a contract with Head & Shoulders shampoo, and has starred in five commercials for the product; however, Odell Beckham Jr. took his place after Polamalu’s retirement. In August 2010, P&G paid for a million-dollar insurance policy from Lloyd’s of London for Polamalu’s hair
