 Going Natural How to Fall in Love with Nappy Hair No. 1 on Amazon


The socially committed Computer Scientist, graduated from the University of Amsterdam, started a digital revolution 10 years ago with her book and accompanying website going-natural.com. Back then, not only was the concept of a supporting website for a book new, it was also a subject that had barely been covered before the Social Media era; naturally frizzy hair.

Liong's book was published at a time when frizzy haircuts were considered unacceptable while Black women were looking for alternatives to straightened hair. De-frizzers cause relaxer-induced alopecia, a form of hair loss that affects as many as 73% of Black women*.

As a Social Entrepreneur who had personally dealt with relaxer-induced alopecia, Liong therefore championed healthier hair for the Black woman. She published Going Natural How to Fall in Love with Nappy Hair, to help women transition to naturally frizzy hair.

In addition to books and a much sought-after hair care line that will soon be available in Suriname, Liong still uses her IT background to achieve her goal. With more than 80.000 members and fans, she's known as the Social Media Internet expert who launched America's Next Natural Model, an online pageant for curly-haired models entering its sixth season this year.

Going Natural, How to Fall in Love with Nappy Hair has become a household name in the world of Black hair and has therefore been chosen to be translated into French.

The French edition will be published in May during Boucles 'd Ebene in Paris, Europe's largest fair for Black entrepreneurs. In addition to signing books, Liong will also give several workshops there. The book is available at amazon.com.
