Brazilian hair

Q:

Assalamu alaikum

I did ghusl haidoh with Brazilian hair on my hair and later found out water does not penetrate it so I redid my ghusl with my hair loosened out of it braids. After the ghusl I had doubt about water penetrating my hair to reach the scalp but I disregard because my faith was not really strong then. I repayed my missed fast the same month

Are my fast valid?

If water did not penetrate the scalp during ghusl does it invalidate the ghusl and subsequently my fasts?

A:

Wa `alaykum As-Salamu waRahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

Brazilian hair is fake hair, and the majority of scholars disapprove of its use.  Although a few allow it on condition: you are not keeping it to deceive people; that would be the case if someone uses it to pretend to be young for getting married. Otherwise, it is strictly forbidden, according to consensus.

Now coming to the issue of water coming in contact with the scalp during ghusl, then it should be removed and washed. Ghusl is not complete unless it is done. As for the validity of the fast, it does not affect it. In other words, fasting is valid, even if your ghusl is invalid.

Almighty Allah Knows best.
