Is hair color haram?By NaseebSupport
About User: Female, 31, Minnesota
Is it correct that dying hair is prohibited in Islam? I recently got my hair dyed to a vibrant shade of red and my husband totally freaked out as he says that not only dyeing hair is prohibited in Islam but the reddish tone is highly in appropriate as it is associated with devil in so many cultures.
I researched on the internet and have found contradictory views as some say it is haram while others say it is permissible to dye your hair in nay color but black. Can anyone tell me what the significance of not allowing black dye is? Moreover some people say that dyeing hair is not allowed but you can apply henna to your hair. If it is true, then doesn’t henna give your hair a reddish tint as well? My husband has not spoken to me in 2 days and he insists that I get my hair re-dyed to its original tone.
I really love my new hair color so if I can get some insight on the Islamic point of view with some references it would be a lot of help.
