There's some shiny stuff attached to Eric Northman's head in Season 2 (Episode 1 and 2) of True Blood. It looks metallic, and I would like to know what it is and what it's for.

Above is an early scene from Episode 2, just after a bloody exercise.

I think Eric is getting his hair dyed (aluminum foil is a common item used in bleaching or coloring hair).

I can't quite remember the reason he did this - but one suspects he was looking to change his appearance for some reason.

There is circumstantial evidence in this post and in this YouTube clip, he's clearly wearing something to protect his clothes from the dye too.
