Can You Sell Human Hair and Plastic Hair Wigs?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is it allowed to sell human hair as wigs as well as plastic hair as wigs which is sold in cosmetic shops. I understand that there is some fatwa regarding it but to my understanding the Hadith states that we cannot sell it or wear it. Please clarify the matter.


A: Selling of plastic and synthetic hair is permissible. It is not permissible to sell human hair.

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