Earlier this month, Rihanna launched Fenty Hair, a line that is “designed to strengthen and repair all types of hair.”

She announced the collection via Instagram, along with a promotional video, in which she gushed Fenty Hair. “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 strong by the style.”
