Colours for Dyeing Hair

Q: Is dyeing/coloring of hair for men/women allowed in Islam or not? If so, what colors?

A: It is permissible to dye the hair. Do not use black dye, as this is forbidden. Also, do not use dye which contains Haraam ingredients. (Bahrur Raa’iq V8 P208).  Do not use colours which have become a fashion among the non Muslims (purple, pink, etc).

Allah Ta’aala knows best
