Sunnah method of brushing the hair

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is there any specific Sunnah method of brushing the hair (for women) and is there any masnoon duas which can/should be read whilst brushing the hair?


A: Nabi’s (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) method in these types of matters was that he would start from the right. Plaiting the hair is also masnoon for women.

I have not come across any particular du`aa.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
