Did you know that targaryens aren’t fireproof.
one of the biggest misconceptions that the show has created (as witnessed by the masses of outraged asoiaf fans) is that all targaryens are immune to heat and fire. they do have a natural predisposition and tolerance to heat, but that doesn't mean that they can withstand the immense heat of a dragon's breath. the history books are littered with cases of targaryens burning to death; some while drinking wildfire, others in battle against dragons.
jon snow is a confirmed targaryen at this point, and he burned his hand while slaying a white walker. viserys, a true-born targaryen, was killed when drogo dumped a vat of melted gold on his head. the fact that daenerys survived the hatching of her dragons was nothing short of a miracle. her second encounter with fire, when she burned down the temple of the dosh khaleen, did not occur in the books (yet) and is unexplained other than our suspension of disbelief.
on top of that, daenerys' hair is not fireproof either. in the books, her hair is burned away with her cloths in the fire that births her dragons.
