head & shoulders & Troy Polamalu Welcome Brian 'The Boz' Bosworth Into Hair Infamy

The Mane Event Challenge Crowns a Winner

CINCINNATI, Nov. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- In a surprising turn of events today, head & shoulders crowned NFL legend Brian Bosworth the fan awarded title of "Most Iconic NFL Hair of All Time". Recognized for his hair style, the "Boz cut", Brian will be inducted as the winner of head & shoulders' Mane Event, a throw down between eight NFL legends with iconic hair.

While Brian takes home this coveted title, head & shoulders spokesman Troy Polamalu's ridiculously full and thick curls continue to carry the ultimate hair torch as his million dollar Samoan locks now bear the prestigious honor of earning a Guinness World Record(R) title as "Highest Insured Hair".

The Mane Event is a nod to head & shoulders' Polamalooza campaign, a celebration of full and thick NFL hair styles both past and present. In NFL history, Brian Bosworth made his mark as a tough linebacker with a hair style to match. Fast forward to today's playing field where Troy, who is currently in his second year partnership with head & shoulders, equally amazes fans with his astounding plays on the field as with his long, flowing mane that peeks out his helmet.

Earlier in the 2010 football season, Troy's hair was boldly insured by head & shoulders with a policy that has since lead to a Guinness World Record. "It's unreal that my Samoan hair, protected by head & shoulders, has received this much attention and now this unbelievable Guinness World Record," says Pittsburgh Steelers' Troy Polamalu.

Troy's secret weapon that protects his hair and helps safe guard the pay out of the one million dollar policy is Hair Endurance for Men. "Hair Endurance for Men is an everyday shampoo that's tough enough to clean and protect Troy's scalp and keep his hair looking full and thick," says April Anslinger, Brand Manager of head & shoulders at Procter and Gamble.

Fans curious about Troy's locks can visit to download a new smartphone application to "Polamalize" themselves, create their own 'Mane Event' bracket and win outrageously cool NFL prizes including a Super Bowl XLV VIP package.
