Brooklyn, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2014 -- Those who are on a natural hair journey or harboring the idea, are in for some real insight when natural hair Entrepreneur, Mireille Liong A-Kong, takes center stage on WABC's, Here and Now TV show. The program airs on Sundays and the episode featuring Liong A-Kong is expected to provide a wealth of information on matters of natural hair care as well as Entrepreneur's success within the industry.

Mireille Liong A-Kong is a social entrepreneur who holds a Master's Degree in Information Technology. She is the CEO of going-natural.com and owner of the Going Natural hair care product line.

After overcoming relaxer-induced alopecia, a hair loss condition that affects 73% of African American women, Mireille published the book Going Natural: How to Fall in Love with Nappy Hair and built going-natural.com, now a social web and networking site with over 35,000 members.

Liong A-Kong's second book, Bad Hair Uprooted: A Celebration of Black Follicles is a photo book that illustrated the 10th anniversary of going-natural.com. Her third book, scheduled to be released in February 2015, will feature natural salons and stylists who kept Black follicles healthy and alive and allowed the natural hair movement to grow to what it has become today.

Mireille's love of natural hair as well as her vision to change the perception of natural hairstyles inspired her to create America's Next Natural Model, which is an online natural hair pageant in its 6th season.

Mireille is delighted about being featured on the Here and Now TV show. She said, "I am beyond excited that the WABC TV invited me to come and talk about my body of work at going-natural.com."
