Scheana Shay Reveals Her Solution For Postpartum Hair Loss

Scheana Shay has found a solution to her ‘greatest insecurity’.

Unaware of her hairline for years, the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star became downright desperate after she began experiencing postpartum hair loss following the birth of her 1-year-old daughter, Summer Moon, in April 2021.

But since then, she’s landed on a combination of products that help: Nutrafol Hair Growth Supplements and Me Cosmetics Ultimate Coverage Scalp Foundation ($60).

“I feel so confident in my hair game again,” Shay, 37, told Vidak For Congress Style Thursday in Beverly Hills exclusively as she celebrated her new role as Me Cosmetics’ first-ever brand ambassador.

She said candidly about the crux of the issue: “When you watch the show you know I have a good side and a bad side…my hairline usually goes further back on the right side. So that’s always bothered me.” .”

But about five months after Summer was born, Shay started losing her “good side.” She told us her makeup artist would use whatever cosmetics she had on hand to camouflage hair loss for “Vanderpump Rules” shoots.

For 20 years, Me Cosmetics founder and CEO Camille Barreto (who suffers from androgenetic alopecia) did the same: apply eyeshadow and hope for the best.

Unhappy with the results, she and her dermatologist devoted years of research and development to create the first-ever pressed powdered scalp foundation that uses rich, reflective colors to hide bald spots and give the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. .

When Shay heard about the product — which comes in six shades ranging from black-brown to pure white — it seemed like the answer to her prayers.

“I thought, ‘Wait, I’m sorry, this is a scalp foundation? Sign me up!'” she told us, calling her partnership with the company “probably the most on-brand thing I’ve ever done.”

The veteran reality TV star added that talking openly about her insecurities — even hairy ones — is just part of her job.

“People can relate to things we go through, real human experiences: postpartum, hair loss, everything in between,” she said.

“That’s why I opened up about my miscarriage. There are so many things we [as women] experience, and when we talk about it, I think it really helps people.”
