Brushing Hair on Shabbat

Brushing Hair on Shabbat
Day: Tuesday
Date: October 27, 2015
Parshat: Vayera
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 340

In memory of Adam Eliyahu ben Reina and Avraham Asher ben Tzadika

It is forbidden to use a comb on Shabbat since it is near impossible that hairs will not be caused to fall out while combing. However it is permissible for a person to lightly straighten or fix his hair with a soft brush since that is not as sure to cause hairs to fall out. Unfortunately, this prohibition is often looked at lightly in our times. It is therefore especially important to be careful in this area and to encourage others to be careful as well.

DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at sephardichalacha.org
