Habits of Prophet S.A.W
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. took special care of skin and hair. Prophet washed them regularly and anointed them with oil.
Our Mother Aishah (R.A.) also narrated,
“The Prophet (S.A.W.) used to (put) bend his head (out) to me while he was in Itikaf in the Mosque during my monthly periods and I would comb and oil his hair.”
[Sahih al Bukhari Volume 3, Book 33, Number 245]
Maintaining the health and condition of the hair is an important aspect of the Sunnah. In Sahih al Bukhari, it is narrated that the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) said,
“Whoever has hair, let him look after it properly”
So, taking proper care is a part of religious duty as well. In Tib we can find various tips for growth that improve our scalp and also prevent hair loss.
1Oil Massage for Hair Treatment
Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. used oil on his hair to keep them healthy and dandruff free. Olive oil is the best option as the plant is dearer to Allah and Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. advised to anoint ourselves with it.
“Season (your food) with olive oil and anoint yourselves with it, for it comes from a blessed tree.”– Sunan Ibn Majah
Massaging at least once a week is recommended by using the fingertips gently and smoothly. Oils are enriched with nutrients that increase blood-flow circulation to the scalp, thus strengthening the roots and conditioning the hair shaft.
