Hair oil/gel and Wudhu


S/A Below is a question and I would appreciate the answer based on Ayatullah Sistani’s ruling. Can I apply hair products (hair gel, oil, wax) and while performing wudhu/masah do I have to remove them? or can I do the masah on top of the hair oil or hair gel? Kindly give a detailed answer and any suggestions/preferences Jazakallah


Alaykum Salaam

If wiping the roots of hair in Wudhu (is done), there is no objection in it.
