Dyeing gray hair

Question and Answer:

Q. My hair is turning grey, my husband and my son dont want me to use henna, can i use hair color? Jazakallah!

A. You can use any hair dye that is free from impure ingredients. You should not dye your hair pure black. You can dye it a very dark brown which is almost black but not pure black. If your hair is naturally of a different shade besides black, you can dye your hair to that colour as well.
