Rihanna suffered traumatic “waves” of postpartum hair loss.

The “We Found Love” singer has sons RZA and Riot with her rapper partner A$AP Rocky. She admitted being hit with the condition was “not on the pamphlet” when she started her journey to motherhood.

“I did not expect it to happen in waves, either. I thought it would just happen and grow back,” she said in an interview shared by Refinery29 to mark the launch of her Fenty Hair products.

“Enough is enough,” Rihanna said clumps of her hair fell off in different places on her head.

“I learned to embrace that in itself,” the multihyphenate stated about the loss forced her to change her style.”That just actually made me get a little more creative and clever with my hair stuff.”

Rihanna wore her hair in closely cropped curls for her launch event. Fans said they found her admission “relatable.”

Her new Fenty haircare line features $29 shampoo and a heat-protecting styling cream for $28.

Rihanna started dating A$AP in 2020 after the pair were linked professionally as early as 2013.

Their boy RZA’s name is a tribute to producer and rapper RZA, leader of the Wu-Tang Clan — whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs — as well as being a nod to A$AP’s middle name.

Along with telling how her hair loss sparked a change in her style, Rihanna recently said her revealing old outfits are her biggest fashion “ick.”

“I did so much [rubbish] in my life. I had my nipples out, I had my panties out. But now those are the things, I guess, as a mom, as an evolved young lady … it’s just things that I just feel like I would never do,” she said when asked to name her greatest turn-off when it comes to clothes. “And I’m just, like, ‘Oh my god, I really did that? Nips out?’”
