Using Scented Soap for Shaving to End the State of Ihram

Q.Is soap considered part of the Halq to get out of ihram, or does its use make sadaqah or dum due on a person?


A. Scented soap must not be used for shaving the head prior to coming out of Ihram. According to my knowledge, the soap used by the hairdressers in Makkah/Mina is generally unscented. This should be verified. 

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
