Semi Permanent Hair Dye

Dec 4, 2021 | Taharah (Purity)


Assalamulykum. Is permanent straightening which restructured the hair invalid ritual purity?
And what about semi permanent hair dye?
I heard one fatwa where it was said if all of these create any layer ritual purity will be invalid.Now I’m having waswasa what if mine was created any layer?
How can i find out?
Please please let me know what can i do?


You should speak to the hair salon where the treatment is carried out. You need to find out from them whether or not any coating is applied to the hair which creates a barrier preventing water from touching the hair. If there is such a barrier then that would mean ritual purity would not be valid due to the coating and it would need to be removed. You would need to locate a product that removes this coating. If however, the hair salon say there is no such waterproof coating then you do not have to do anything and your ritual purity would be valid.
