Wudhu With Gel On The Hair


What is the ruling of gel on the hair when making wudhu because the hair becomes hard? Will the salaah be valid?


If the hair gel is made up of such texture that it creates a barrier between the hair and water and prevents the water to reach the hair, then Wudhu will be invalid by making Masah on such gel. Hence Salaah will also be invalid.
