“We are here to shake up the beauty industry by redefining self-care and grooming for the next generation of Black and Brown men, giving them the confidence they need to be their best selves everyday,” said Cora in a press release.
How did the Miller’s journey begin? Voyage ATL reported that Cora was a first-time mother to a baby boy named Kade. He happened to have a head full of hair.
“I was surprised to discover that there were no products specifically designed for curly-headed boys. When Kade turned one, his hair changed into its natural, curly kinky texture, so I begin searching for products and resources to help me better care for it,” Cora said, also mentioning that products she found were geared toward girls. “With this in mind and inspired by Kade, in early 2018, my husband and I started working to create products that felt made for any boy with textured hair. After months of researching, developing and testing products, while balancing our full-time jobs, parenthood and our personal lives, we officially launched Young King Hair Care in November 2019 – and the response so far has been incredible!”
And now, more young kings can enjoy the royal hair treatment.
