I never dyed my hair.

Is that dramatic enough? *LOL* :D

I know that hair colouring / hair dyeing is a normal thing because most of my friends do it, but I was never convinced enough to try any products. One of the reasons is because I love my thick black hair and I never have the intention to go crazy with my hair colour. The second reason is because my question of whether the hair dye is wudhu' compliance or not. I know that there are 'halal' hair dye products in the market, but brands should be aware that it's not just about 'halal' ingredients, it is also a matter of weather the product is water permeable or not. Water permeable function is crucial because one of the main commandment of wudhu' (ablution) is to wet the front hair with water. Before you ask (if you are a non-muslim), wudhu' is a vital step to do before performing prayers for muslims. So it is important to make sure the product is water permeable. 



Last week I had the opportunity to attend a wudhu' compliance hair colour launch, Gumash Nourishing Hair Color by Rangkaian Mercu Health & Beauty which was created through the idea of the founder, Datin Syarifah Farah Gumash Syed Husin. During the event, Datin Syarifah herself told us that she noticed that there weren't any wudhu' compliance hair colours available in the market and she took it upon herself to provide it to the market. With the help of syariah panels, Dato' Zahazan Mohamed and Ustaz Fauwaz Fadzil, they ensure that Gumash is water permeable and safe to be used by muslims. The research to create Gumash took about one and a half year, and chemists works hand in hand with syariah panels to ensure the ingredients used are halal, safe, water permeable and beneficial to consumers. 


Gumash Nourishing Hair Color  is created based on how henna works on hair. The colourings came from synthetic dyes and enriched with natural sources such as cocoa butter and argan oil. As a beauty addict, I know that cocoa butter and argan oil are so beneficial to hair. Here's are the breakdown of how these two ingredients bring benefits to our hair :

COCOA BUTTER
✨ Softening properties
✨ Provides intense hydration
✨ Repair dry and damaged hair
✨ Reduce hair loss through the benefits of hair strengthening

ARGAN OIL
✨ Promote hair growth
✨ Helps in keeping the hair soft, smooth and manageable
✨ Decrease hair frizziness


Gumash Nourishing Hair Color  is 100 percent free from ammonia and paraben, making it safe to be used by consumers. So now you know what Gumash is made of, so let's find out the shades available and my thoughts on this wudhu' compliance hair colour.


There are 3 shades available ; black, dark red and dark brown. It is said that the color will translate differently on different hair, as some is using it to cover grey hair and some is using just for the sake of colouring the hair (like myself :D). I would think that this hair colour would be a great gift to our parents if they would want to dye hair as the colour will be more vibrant on grey hair. Okay, so what's included in a Gumash Nourishing Hair Color kit?



✨ Gumash Color Cream (2 x 40ml) - Formulated with henna and enriched with argan oil and cocoa butter.
✨ Gumash Hair Developer Lotion (2 x 60ml) - To activate color cream
✨ Gumash Hair Shampoo (30ml) - Remove impurities for a manageable hair
✨ Gumash Hair Conditioner (30ml) - Keep hair soft, shiny and prevent split ends
✨ Gumash Hair Serum (5ml) - Final step to keep the hair soft, smooth and silky
✨ A pair of gloves
✨ A shower cap
✨ A dual comb and brush for hair colour application
✨ Instruction leaflet for easy application


Pouring in 1A (Color Cream) into 1B (Hair developer Lotion)    
Shake the bottle vigorously to ensure all the products are mixed well together.    


Then apply the cream on the brush and apply it on hair. I would suggest to make small sections, layer by layer for easy application and also to ensure wider coverage. Start from hair root, and work your way down to the end. Use the comb for tangled hair and to keep the hair in place. Don't forget to put on a towel over your shoulder to prevent any spillage on your clothes. If you have longer hair (like myself), I highly recommend for you to ask someone to help you to apply it. My husband helped me about 3/4 way, and then I had to do it myself because my son woke up from his nap and needed to be hold. So after I was done with the application, I realized that there were quite huge hair dye droplets on my carpet. T_T Soooo, I really suggest for you to ask someone to help out or lay out plastics or newspapers under your chair, just to be safe.

Anyway, after you are done with the application, leave it on for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on your grey hair situation. I kept it on for 30 minutes only as I don't have grey hair. Oh ONE IMPORTANT thing, don't forget to do the skin allergy test on the bend of your elbow (do not wash the colour for 48 hours) before using this hair colour to make sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients. 



After 30 - 45 minutes, rinse off with water and continue with shampoo and conditioner. Then apply hair serum to towel-dried hair for the final step to keep the hair soft, shiny and healthy. After my hair is completely dry, I can see that there are subtle dark red hue on my hair. My hair is really really black, I never coloured my hair and it is chemical-free hair so I don't really expect the hair colour to be intense. But I really think that it would have a great colour pay off for someone with grey hair. 

There are so may reasons why I love this Gumash Nourishing Hair Color :

✨ It's a muslim product made for muslims (of course for non-muslims too)
✨ The research and production is curated by syariah panels, therefore I can use it 'tanpa was-was'.
✨ It's wudhu' compliance which is a great alternative for muslims who are looking for solution to dye their grey hair. 
✨ This hair colour has amazing fruity scent, thanks to the non-existance of ammonia.
✨ My hair feels super soft and smooth even after 3 days of colouring my hair.
✨ There are 2 bottles/tubes of the hair colour cream and hair developer lotion. If you have shorter hair, you can use one bottle and save another bottle for another time.
✨ I love that the kit comes in a complete set, starting from the gloves to the hair serum (everything you need for the hair colouring process) 
✨ I can do it at the comfort of my own home, any time of the day. 
✨ The kit is not just about hair colouring, it is also about protecting and nourishing hair.



Would I suggest Gumash Nourishing Hair Color to you? Absolutely! This is the first time I came across a wudhu' compliance hair colouring product and I must share it with you guys! You can now colour you grey hair 'tanpa was-was' and be a confident with yourself. Furthermore, this is made by muslim, for muslim. It is a better choice, isn't it? :) A box of Gumash Nourishing Hair Color is priced at RM129, but currently it is priced at RM109 due to a seasonal promotion. You can purchase it at certified agents nationwide or via website.
