ABOUT The Daurham Corporation
D-orum Hair Products, Inc. was established in 1979, by Ernest Daurham Jr to address the unique hair care needs
of the African American consumer, in which he was so passionately familiar. Out of this passion, he created
popular Brands and products such as The Chicago Curl Kit, The Dry Curl-maintenance products, a disinfectant
solution called "Safety First" and his flagship Brand of “Leisure Curl”. Within the Leisure Curl line was the
Gentleman of Leisure Kit, the Relax with Leisure - Relaxer System and Ladies of Leisure Cosmetics.
We are a company with deep roots in the community and in 1991, we established the Ernest Daurham
Community Foundation to support community, social, educational and employment opportunities in the African
American community. His legacy of great haircare products and compassion for humanity continues with this
family-owned business through great products, service and philanthropic endeavors now known as Daurham Hair
Products and the Ernest Daurham Jr Legacy Foundation.
