The Ruling on Using Food to Beautify the Hair – Shaikh Ibn ul-‘Uthaymeen

Question: The female questioner says in regards to placing henna, milk, onion, garlic, and other than that of foods that are placed on the head hair. Is there anything wrong with that?

Answer: “There is no harm in it. There is no harm for a woman using foods that benefit her hair or her face. However, she does not use something that is impure due to the generality of the verse of the Exalted:

هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ لَكُمْ مَا فِي الأَرْضِ جَمِيعاً

He it is Who created for you all that is on earth. Then He Istawa (rose over) towards the heaven and made them seven heavens and He is the All-Knower of everything [2:29]

[Noor ‘ala Darb no. 352]
