Can Bald man or woman get new hair

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His  forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


If modern science has developed a treatment whereby men or women can re-grow their hair, there is absolutely no harm in seeking such treatment.


But Islam has forbidden the believers to wear a wig, or attach false or artificial hair on their heads.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.817 Narrated by Aisha

An Ansari girl was married and she became sick and all her hair fell out. Intending to provide her with false hair, they asked the Prophet (saws) who said, "Allah has cursed the lady who artificially lengthens (her or someone else's) hair, and also the one who gets her hair lengthened."


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.133 Narrated by Aisha

An Ansari woman gave her daughter in marriage and the hair of the latter started falling out. The Ansari women came to the Prophet (saws) and mentioned that to him and said, "Her (my daughter's) husband suggested that I should let her wear false hair." The Prophet (saws) said, "No, (don't do that) for Allah sends His curses upon such ladies who lengthen their hair artificially."


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your Brother in Islam,
