Women wash hair in ghusl
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 6:
6 O ye who believe! When ye prepare for prayer wash your faces and your hands (and arms) to the elbows; rub your heads (with water); and (wash) your feet to the ankles. If ye are in a state of ceremonial impurity (sexual intercourse), bathe your whole body.
Dear and beloved Sister in Islam, if one is in the state of ceremonial impurity due to janaba (sexual intercourse), it is absolutely obligatory that one needs to perform a full bath or ghusl before they can make themselves available for prayer; and it is an absolutely obligatory condition of ghusl that water must reach every single part of ones body making sure that absolutely no part is left dry, including ones hair.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
