Bryce Harper thinks he's been foiled by his hair product. In an interview with MLB Network's "Intentional Talk," the Washington Nationals star said he believes his hair gel is to blame for his helmet frequently coming off during games.
As Intentional Talk's hosts pointed out, Harper's helmet has come off on a number of occasions this season, whether he's running the bases or sliding to reach a base.
Harper said his current hair gel is a product from Suavecito, and that his head is very slick after application. He suggested a possible product switch could happen, noting that teammate Jayson Werth -- who uses a Murray's hair gel product -- never seems to lose his helmet during play.
You know what they say: If you want to be the best, you've got to learn from the best, and Werth is so well known for his beard and hair that there were Twitter accounts devoted to each.
