Question

Assalamualaikum,

I have really long hair and I'm not able to manage it properly. I have been having hair loss now for quite a while and so I found out that when I eat most of my nutrients go into my hair and my body barely gets any, I understand that it is forbidden for women to cut their hair but in my case it is affecting my health. I had lost weight as well. So for this reason will it be permissible for me to cut my hair short?

Answer

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

You should increase your diet, use good diet. Also use oil, this is Sunnat and a cure too. Also have the treatment done with other medicines. It is not correct to cut hair short only for this reason. However, if the hair are so long that they look awkward then there is room to cut hair short as needed to remove the awkwardness.

واللہ اعلم بالصواب
