Category: Janaba Bath for Females
Janaba Bath for Females ~ The Ghusl for men and women is essential same. Women who have braids can do ghusl without having to undo their hair if they are in Jannabah (sexual impurity).
A woman said to the Prophet: “Messenger of God! I am a woman who ties my hair in plaits. Should I undo my plaits for ghusl, i.e. the bath required to remove the state of ceremonial impurity?” The Prophet answered: “No. It is sufficient for you to use the fill of your cupped hands three times, and then wash the rest of your body, and you will be in a state of purity.” (Related by Muslim, Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhi.) This makes it clear that a woman needs to take water in her hand three times and wet her hair, rubbing it at root. There is no need to wash her hair fully.
