While Roman Reigns is half Samoan and half Italian it’s his Samoan side which is prevalent when it comes to his hair.

This is evident by the long dark, thick black curly hair he has and keeps in good health.

What’s even more interesting is that in Samoan tradition they believe there are spiritual components to one’s hair which is why most of the people avoid cutting their hair. This would explain his length and thickness.

As a result of Roman Reigns stardom within the WWE action figures have been produced which mimic his long black hair. This same representation can be seen across different video games

Why Do Wrestlers Wet Their Hair?

Wrestlers wet their hair for an athletic look. The wrestlers that do this have the advantage of looking as though they left the gym, full of strength and ready to kick ass. Sweat alongside a great physique implies strength which is why wrestlers wet their hair and bodies.

Superstars in the 1950s and 1960s used real oil to enjoy this effect, which caused them to overheat sometimes. Today contemporary wrestlers love to go with the water option and its less slippery than body oil and provides a cooler look.
