Q: I have heard it’s permissible to use black dye, but I have a doubt. Nowadays we can’t say what all the ingredients in the packets are. Is all type of dyes allowed?I have heard that our wudhu and bathing won’t be correct since its a kind of paint. Often the hair colouring damages our hair. Knowing about such (scientific) damages, does Islam say “no” to use such types of dye.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
