As salaamu alaykum,
If a beardhair does fall off or is plucked out with combing it, is the tip where the root is pure or impure?
Wa Alaikum Assalam,
Human hair is clean (pure).
There is an argument surrounding the purity of human hair. In Imam An-Nawawis Majmu’ (1/231) it discusses these details and states:
“فَحَاصِلُهَا أَنَّ الْمَذْهَبَ … وَطَهَارَةُ شَعْرِ الْآدَمِيِّ هَذَا مُخْتَصَرِ الْمَسْأَلَةِ”
“In short, human hair is clean. That is the schools opinion”
Also note, that those who do believe it is impure, state that small amounts are an exception.
