Q: Asalam alaikum,
Is it haraam to use a hair brush that contains a mixture of boar bristles and synthetic bristles?
I am not sure how the boar bristles have been processed and cleaned.
Thank you for your time.

Boar is that animal that is part of the pig family. As muslims, we should refrain from anything that creates interaction between us and pigs.
The things we deal with has a nature. Without valid reason, to use things from ‘piggies’ would affect our faith based interactions.
Using boar (pig) bristles becomes problematic when its bristles touchers the moisture (oils) of the hair and this moisture spreads to multiple parts of the head and hands through its handling.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
