Is It Permissible To Paste Human Hair on the Scalp Using an Adhesive?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

Answered by: Maulana Nazrul Islam


I would like to know if I get the hair replacement a process in which they paste human hair on the scalp using an adhesive is it permissible or not as I get mixed messages online as in Fiqh Hanafi using a wig of someone else’s hair are not permissible. Also if it’s permissible then the ghusl and wudu would be valid? As it is pasted on the scalp using adhesive.

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


The hair replacement which is mentioned above will not be permissible. (1)

As you’ve mentioned the hair is placed on the scalp using adhesives.

It will be similar to using wigs even though it might be your own hair because the hair is not inserted into the hair bulb on the scalp.

The Wudhu and Ghusl will be invalid because the water will not reach the scalp during Ghusl which is a must.

However, if someone has a valid need for a hair transplant, it will be permissible provided that the person uses his own hair. (2)

Ghusl and Wudhu will be valid after the hair transplant.

Only Allah knows best.
