How Brazilian Star David Luizâ€™s Hair Fuels His Success [LOOK]
Team-mates may describe his curly hairstyle as â€œridiculousâ€, but David Luiz might actually be a cut above the rest precisely because of his trademark locks.
Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI) consultant Orlando Laitano has highlighted research which suggests the Brazil defenderâ€™s hair plays a part in fuelling his unreal success.
David Luiz who is joining Paris Saint-Germain from Chelsea has forged a reputation as one of the top defenders in the world and has also been the subject of scientific assessment.
â€œThere is a study showing that when you have a bald head, you are actually more exposed to heat stress than when you have hair,â€ said GSSIâ€™s Laitano.
â€œDavid Luiz is more protected from heat stress because of the amount of hair that he has. As long as he does not cut his hair, I think he can have an advantage over other people.â€
David Luiz and his hair have been on show during the World Cup in Brazil where team-mates have been providing style counsel.
Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar said: â€œHe thinks he looks good with that hair, I think it looks ridiculous.â€
Brazil midfielder Paulinho said:
â€œHis hair is really weird but, if he likes it, what can I do? Itâ€™s taste right? I canâ€™t argue about taste!â€
