Every woman’s postpartum journey is different and can include a variety of symptoms that range from anxiety, mood swings, cramps, hormonal shifts and much more.

For Fenty Beauty mogul Rihanna, her postpartum symptoms included something that isn’t often discussed: hair loss.


In a recent interview with Refinery29  during the launch of her Fenty Hair care line, the singer opened up about her struggle with hair loss following the birth of her sons, two-year-old RZA and 10-month-old, Riot.

“I didn’t expect it to happen in waves. I thought it would just happen and grow back,” the 36-year-old mother-of-two said.

She added that this was one of the postpartum issues that was “not on the pamphlet”.

Rihanna revealed that she began losing hair in patches. “At that point you’re just like alright enough is enough,” she said.

Faced with this challenge, she got “more creative and clever” about her hairstyles, which have included high ponytails to blonde wigs.

Most recently, the mom of two has been showing off her natural curly locks.

Speaking at her event, Rihanna spoke about the motivation behind creating her haircare line.

“Evolving as a woman and even as an artist, hair has been such a huge part of that and a reflection of whatever I’m feeling,” she said. “So, it changes a lot and my hair goes through a lot. Making this brand, I had to consider all of those things. I want to look fly, but I want my hair to be healthy. How do I do that? All of my products need to strengthen and repair while I’m out just being fabulous.”
