New Project (4)

AUTHOR

Mireille Liong

Overcoming relaxer-induced alopecia and learning that the hair loss condition affects an astonishing 73% of African American women, motivated me to use my IT expertise to improve the health of Black women’s follicles and highlight the social injustice behind the numbers.

About

Ecommerce strategist, Author, Natural Hair Activist, Dancer, Photographer.

Born in the Netherlands, raised in Suriname, based in New York, I dance and capture natural hair wherever I go.

Inspired by our unapologetic roots and driven by the fact that Black people are the only people who don’t have the human right to wear their God-given tresses natural, I use my camera to shoot for justice, aiming for equal hair rights, one headshot at the time.
