▪️Are men allowed to use women’s hair lotions?▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

The questioner says: What’s the ruling on a man using hair lotions specific for women to soften and lengthen his hair?

📝 Answer:

Lotions may be used by men and women alike, and a man’s hair also needs to be taken care of.

The Prophet ﷺ said:
((من كان له شعر فليكرمه))
“Whoever has hair should take care of it”

Nonetheless, one must avoid lotions which contain chemicals harmful to the hair and skin. This type must be avoided.
