Rihanna Shares Her Journey with Postpartum Hair Loss: ‘I Didn’t Expect It to Happen in Waves’

Rihanna opened up about her postpartum hair loss journey and how it inspired her to create Fenty Hair, a new line of hair care products. The singer experienced unexpected hair loss in waves after giving birth to her sons and found the experience frustrating but ultimately empowering. “I didn’t expect it to happen in waves. I thought it would just happen and grow back,” said the Grammy winner, adding that the side effect was “not on the pamphlet” for post-pregnancy, during which she began losing hair in patches. “At that point, you’re just like, alright enough is enough.” Rihanna’s goal with Fenty Hair is to promote healthy hair growth and repair damage while empowering individuals to express themselves through their hair. The line is now available for purchase.
