“In the end, it’s just about another way to support the veterans,” John Hamilton, adjutant general for the VFW said. “And, with Troy involved, we’re expecting to get some good media exposure.”

Polamalu’s hair became famous in his time with the black and gold, as well as has made him some dollars doing ads with “Head and Shoulders.”

  1. As difficult as it will be for me, as a fan of Troy Polamalu, to see his famous” hair be cut off, I am stoked that he’ ding it for such a great cause. He’s such a great person, and has an equally great soul, so it’s not really surprising that’s cutting his curls off for Vets. Way to go, Mr. Polamalu! 😉 I’ve been a fan of his for awhile, and I’m not ashamed to say that I’m a little jealous of how great his hair is when in compared to mine. It’s going for something great. Keep doing amazing things for others!
