Cutting hair because of sickness

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
My wife is suffering from excessive hair loss, and it was suggested to her that she should cut her hair short to reduce this loss. Is this permissible?

Answer:

Praise be to Allaah.

If this is the case, then it is permissible to cut her hair because this will protect her from harm. (Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 5/182), on the condition that she should not make herself look like men or kaafir women. See Question #1192. And Allaah knows best.

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