The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) at first used to arrange his hair without a parting. Later on used to part them. [Shamail -e-Tirmizi]

In another tradition, it occurs that he used to comb his hair every second day. [Nashrut Tib]. Yet in another tradition from Humaid bin Abdur Rahman it is reported that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to comb his hair occasionally. [Shamail-e-Tirmizi]

It has been related by Hadrat Anas that the hair of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was neither very thick nor quite straight but were slightly curly and reached up to the lobes of his ears. [Shamail-e-Tirmizi]

Hadrat Aishah (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anha) narrated that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) preferred to begin with the right hand while performing wudhu (ablution), combing hair and wearing shoes.[Shamail-e-Tirmizi]

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) would sometimes first wet his beard and then comb it. When he saw his face in the looking glass, he would say:

“O ALLAH ! Thou hast made my creation superior, make my manners superior and give me sustenance in abundance.” [Nashrut-Tib, Shamail-e-Tirmizi]
