Answered by: Maulana Sibghat Ullah
I sometimes use L’Oréal casting creme semi-permanent hair dye to colour my grey hairs. Is this hair dye ok to use? If not is there any hair dye that you can recommend to me?
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
If the alcohol which is used in the hair dye is not derived from grapes and dates then it will be permissible to use them.[i]
