About Us


When Cornrows & Co. first opened in 1980, husband and wife, Taalib-Din Uqdah and Pamela Ferrell, set out to offer something different -- chemical-free African-inspired hairstyles and a plant-based natural product line. They knew there were few hair products that were made to honor and compliment circle hair.

While 'going green’ was not the Cornrows & Co. philosophy, living natural and honoring your body is.  We believe it is important to create a natural approach to hair care and to protect the scalp and body.  We believe that using plant-based products that are hand-crafted, safe for the body and earth is the way to do that.  We are proud to be pioneers of the natural hair movement and delighted that many others are embracing it now.
