I was planning on getting my hair braided with extensions but a family member informed me that it was haram but then another family member disagreed.

My question is the following:Is it still haram to wear extensions since nowadays everything is very much advanced than before; so is it ok to wear extensions for braids?

  • Hair extension is completely haram in Islam, see, "Abd Allah said: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) cursed the woman who adds some false hair and the woman who asks for it, the woman who tattoos and the woman who asks for it. Sunan Abu Dawud 4168 - Book 35, Hadith 10" Sep 8 at 8:31
