When it comes to empowering Oklahoma women, Terrainia Harris and Shekeeta Taylor put their passion to work. In 2010, they founded Resilient Soul, which aims to empower the health and culture of women.
Friday through Sunday, Resilient Soul hosts its second annual Oklahoma Naturals expo, promoting organic health and beauty products and service that celebrate naturally wavy, kinky and curly hair.
“It began when I realized I wanted to be healthier,” said Harris. “I truly believe you must take care of yourself before you can fully take care of others.”
Friday features a meet-and-greet for bloggers. Saturday is at the University of Central Oklahoma, with shopping, seminars and giveaways.
More than 50 vendors will sell accessories and organic products to an expected 1,200 attendees.
“[The event] helps to support and expose all of the resources that are here in Oklahoma,” said Taylor.
Sunday, enjoy a hair show and exhibition at the Individual Artists of Oklahoma Gallery, 706 W. Sheridan, featuring fashion-forward natural hairstyles.
“Honestly,” Taylor said, “we believe that this event will be a new cultural statement for Oklahoma.”
