Rihanna officially dropped her Fenty Hair products today—and in the process, she's taking the opportunity to open up about dealing with postpartum hair loss, saying that after she welcomed her sons, nobody explained to her that her hair would fall out. Rihanna gave birth to her first son, RZA, in May 2022, and welcomed her second, Riot Rose, last August.

"That was not on the pamphlet," Rihanna shared with Refinery29. "I did not expect it to happen in waves, either. I thought it would just happen and grow back."

She went on to say that patches of her hair fell off and that it took time and patience for her to accept it, even though she said that at one point, she'd had "enough."

"I learned to embrace that in itself," she added. "That actually made me get a little more creative and clever with my hair stuff."

In a teaser video for Fenty Hair released earlier this month, Rihanna mentioned that she wanted to offer products for every type of hair, which may explain how she got "creative and clever" with her own styles.

"You know how much switching my hair up matters to me," she said. "I've had almost every texture, color, length, from weaves to braids to natural—so I am launching a flexible line of products for not only every hair want, but every single product is designed to strengthen and repair all types of hair, which is what we truly need! It's time to play and get stronger by the style."

Rihanna also spoke about the possibility of growing her family. Speaking to E! News, she joked that she deserved some time off.

"Can I get my six-pack back first?" she said. "I don't think I ever had one, but still. Let me go to Carnival one summer? Please, one summer."

She went on to say that if it did happen unexpectedly, she'd embrace it.

"I would not be mad," she said. "I would just cry out of pure anxiety for one day and then I think I'll just get over it the next."
