Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Is it permissible to use the shoudher? Shoudher is a substance that is to be rubbed on hands after using henna in order to make the henna colour black.

Praise be to Allaah.
The Sunnah indicates that it is prescribed for women to dye their hands with henna, and the scholars stated that it is mustahabb, and that not doing it is makrooh, and there is nothing wrong with adding “shoudher” to it.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
