Queen Cersei Lannister, as she's called in the hit series,  has long blonde hair on the show.  Kevin Alexander, the show hair designer, revealed that one of her wigs cost $7,000 and was treated like real hair, with shampoo and a specially crafted head to rest on when it was not being worn by Headey.

According to Lousey Nitpickers' website, cutting hair isn't a viable treatment,"Since head lice are only interested in the immediate area of the scalp, cutting the hair will neither prevent nor alleviate infestation."

From the pictures taken from outside the building, the actress' short black hair was soaking wet while the salon employee tended to her tresses.

Signs of lice are "tickling feeling of something moving in the hair. Itching caused by an allergic reaction to the bites. Sores on the head caused by scratching," the website states.

"Cersei's wig doesn't have any chemical processing at all. The wig maker sourced individual colors and strands of hair, which were then individually knotted onto a lace cap for her golden blond blend," Fashion.com reports.
