Rihanna, the world famous Bajan beauty and singer, is reportedly showing signs of hair loss. Known for her striking and beautiful hairstyles, the hairpieces and weaves she may have become accustomed to could be damaging her hair, leading to hair loss. It may be traction alopecia, causing by the pulling of the hair follicle or typical alopecia.
Rihanna, at 25, has toured the world and sold millions of records, changing her hairstyle frequently as the pressures of being a style icon and celebrity mount. While we hope Rihanna is seeking the best advice and hair care, she’s not alone if she is indeed experiencing traction alopecia. Naomi Campbell is a well-known celebrity who has experienced hair loss along with many others, highlighting the potential downside to high maintenance hairstyles. Many women in her position turn to hair loss medication and hair transplants.
