Is hair replacement system(Wig)permissible for men

Question

Guest Moh

Salam Everyone,

I want to know what is the ruling for applying a hair replacement system in the form of an adhesively applied wig for men. I couldn't find any answers online for this question, I follow Ayatollah Saed Al Hakim.

More specifically if a hair replacement system somewhat impedes the passage of Water when performing wudhu/ Ghusl does it categorically invalidate both of these Acts.

Any help is appreciated in this regard

That's a very specific question.

A man is allowed to wear a wig to cover his baldness as long as his intention isn't to look like a woman or deceive anyone, but in general anything that prevents water from reaching the skin must be removed for wudu or ghusl. 

I suggest that anyone in this situation ask his marja.

Here is a ruling of Imam Khamenei regarding your question:

Q 100: A person who wears artificial hair on his head and it is difficult for him not to wear it, is it permissible for him to wipe over it in wuḍū’? 
A: If the artificial hair is in the form of a wig, it would be obligatory to remove it and do wiping. But if the artificial hair is implanted in the skin and its removal would entail difficulty and hardship which could not normally tolerated, it would be valid to do wiping over it.
