My identify is Sophie and I am obsessive about Sport of Thrones — together with a big share of the Attract crew (we even have a channel on Slack, our instantaneous messaging app, known as Dames of Thrones the place we gush concerning the present…or gushed, slightly). And sure, I share the identical identify (nicely, nickname) as Sophie Turner, the actress who performs Sansa Stark on the present. So you’ll be able to think about my excessive pleasure once I discovered I might have an opportunity to interview Turner at an occasion for Wella, the haircare model for which she’s now a spokesperson. It is no secret that in contrast to Sansa, Turner will not be a pure redhead. She’s been dyeing her hair for the function since she was 13. However with Sport of Thrones coming to an finish (tear), Turner has transitioned again to blonde with the assistance of her hairstylist, Christian Wooden, hair colorist, Sonya Dove, and Wella’s latest launches: Wellaplex, and in-salon bond restore therapy, and Fusionplex, and line of 4 merchandise that every one include a potent mix of amino acids and micronized lipids that assist to restore worn out hair fibers, defend the cuticle, and add a serious dose of hydration. Traumatized from a earlier try to return to blonde, Turner could not say sufficient good issues about her most up-to-date expertise. “The final time I bleached my hair it felt like straw,” she stated in our interview. “I did not have the Wella merchandise and my hair was like elastic — once I brushed it, it could simply snap.” This time round, there isn’t any snapping, no straw-like texture — Turner’s hair is delicate and glossy, even after having to movie within the chilly, wintery climate of Belfast, Eire. That’s, if she will be able to maintain onto the merchandise. Beneath, the now British blonde shares her hair suggestions, methods, mishaps, and who’s stealing all her bottles of conditioner.
Attract: How do you retain your hair wholesome whereas filming in chilly climates like Belfast and Iceland?
Sophie Turner: It is truthfully because of the merchandise we’re speaking about at the moment. Such as you say, I am in chilly climates and I am dyeing my hair a lot and curling it, so proper there you have obtained the three foremost issues that harm your hair: chemical substances, warmth, and atmosphere. Actually, the one method to assist with that’s Wellaplex, which is an in-salon service that repairs the bonds in your hair when you’re having your hair dyed. The colorist simply places the Wellaplex in with the colour so through the means of dyeing your hair it is already therapeutic it. Then the Fusionplex is sort of a take-home factor, which is shampoo, conditioner, and masks. I exploit the merchandise day-after-day and my hair is so wholesome and powerful regardless of all of the issues I’ve achieved to it to go from crimson to blonde, particularly since crimson is the toughest dye as a result of it’s important to bleach the shit out of your hair to get it out. However my hair is in actually good situation proper now and it would not be if I wasn’t utilizing this product. It is my favourite product. Each different launch they ask me, “What’s your favourite product from the launch?” I am like, “That is actually nice, however oh my god the Wellaplex.” As a result of it is simply that tremendous.
I additionally at all times use their warmth safety spray. I used to be on vacation very just lately and one of many issues that you simply notice is you at all times use warmth safety spray if you’re curling or straightening your hair, however if you go on vacation, you solely put sunscreen on and also you overlook about your hair. So now once I’m touring or on the train, I at all times put warmth safety spray on my hair earlier than I’m going exterior.

Attract: So then what can be the craziest factor you’d do to your hair?
