Is it ever muttar for a man to die his hair it’s natural color, for reasons such as a job or shidduchim? If it’s a yes, does it continue once you already have the job or once you are already married?November 16, 2014 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #1042444JosephParticipant
On top of everything else, doing it for shidduchim would be disingenuous to fool your date.November 16, 2014 1:52 pm at 1:52 pm #1042445ivoryMember
Not sure that would be fooling the date. If a man gets white hair at age 22 for example, how is his date fooled if he dyes it darker? But this is a halachic question which shouldn’t be paskened here. Or if someone here is an orthodox rabbi please let us know your psak.November 16, 2014 3:10 pm at 3:10 pm #1042446TheGoqParticipant
Is it muttar to wear a toupee?November 16, 2014 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #1042447barlevParticipant
Dying hair is ???? ?? ????
Wearing a toupee will be difficult with tefilin etc, but I assume it’s also ?? ????November 17, 2014 12:23 pm at 12:23 pm #1042448RandomexMember
As Ivory said, ask a posek. Please do post the answer, though.
“If a man gets white hair at age 22 for example, how is his date fooled if he dyes it darker?”
It looks as though he has dark hair. If he will not be
allowed to continue dyeing his hair after the marriage,
he will not look the same as he did while dating her.
barlev: Wearing a toupee will be difficult with tefilin etc, but I assume it’s also ?? ????
Google finds discussions about toupees and tefillin, but
I see no mention of a problem with wearing them.
Perhaps, Barlev, you should refrain from assumptions in future.
Also, the OP knew that there was an issur for men to dye their hair – otherwise, why would they ask if it was allowed under certain circumstances?November 17, 2014 3:34 pm at 3:34 pm #1042449TheGoqParticipant
Is a man allowed to wear a toupee on shabbos or is it carrying?November 17, 2014 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #1042450akupermaParticipant
Why would anyone do such a thing? In our community (unlike among the goyim), age gains respect and adds credibility. Why would anyone want to look younger than they are?November 17, 2014 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm #1042451Bookworm120Participant
I guess there’s a sort of eiruv the Enterprise, because Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock both seem to wear them 24/7. 😛November 17, 2014 5:53 pm at 5:53 pm #1042452mercuryMember
i think hes being extra machmir because he likes to be. how is automatic bidding different then setting a timer for shabbos?November 17, 2014 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm #1042453☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Wrong thread, mercury?
I don’t think you can compare regular melachah to masa u’matan.November 17, 2014 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1042454👑RebYidd23Participant
If someone gets his first gray hairs at 17, he might want to change that.November 17, 2014 6:56 pm at 6:56 pm #1042455YW Moderator-29 👨💻Moderator
Akuperma: because the girls their age, who are sometimes in denial of their age, want a boy who looks to be the age they wish they were and will refuse boys who have grey hair. And for the record, the psak was no dye.November 17, 2014 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #1042456MDGParticipant
Rav Moshe paskened men may dye their hair for business purposes (IM YD 2:61).
