Sophie Turner Wasn't Allowed to Wash Her Hair While Filming Game of Thrones




'For a couple years, I was living with pretty greasy hair.'  

The hair sagas of the women of Westeros continue as Sophie Turner just revealed that she wasn't allowed to wash her hair while filming certain seasons of Game of Thrones. And all this after the natural blond spent years alternating colors between her born-with-it shade and Sansa Stark's eye-catching red.

During an interview with InStyle, the actress spilled her "dirty" secret. After being asked about how the men on the show were famously forbidden from washing their hair so it looked more in character, Turner revealed this fun fact: "For the first few seasons I was allowed to wash my hair because I was an aristocratic young girl, but toward season five they started asking me to not wash my hair and it was really disgusting. Now I wear I wig so I can wash my hair whenever I want, which is nice. But yes, for a couple of years I was living with pretty greasy hair."

That sounds less than fun, but honestly, it's not the worst thing that's happened to her poor head. "A few years ago I was trying to go back from red to blond, and it destroyed my hair to the point that I had to use a wig for Game of Thrones," she told Glamour in November. "They wouldn't let me dye it back red or my hair would've fallen out."

Apparently, being on the biggest show in the world is a real detriment to the beauty routines of its female stars, including Turner's costar Emilia Clarke, who chopped her hair short because of damage inflicted while filming. "My hair was, like, dying!" she said last fall after opting for a pixie. "So I've cut it a little bit shorter. It's almost the shortest it's been. I'm honestly trying to grow out the blond, because it's just killed my hair, and I miss having nice hair."

Thankfully, they've adapted quite nicely-courtesy of some serious masking tips. "The biggest thing [to keeping my hair healthy] is WellaPlex," Turner told Glamour. "It's a hair mask that you put on, leave in for 10 minutes, and then wash out. It repairs the bonds in your hair so that it doesn't just feel strong and healthy; it actually is stronger and healthier afterward. I use it every week, because with the job I have, it's a lot of dyeing, straightening, curling, and heat damage. I'll put in on after showering, watch a bit of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and then I go back and wash it off."

And it definitely looks like it's paying off.
