Meet The Founder

Different Textures Nourishing your hair with the most care ™ was created by chemist Gladys G. Higgins. Gladys graduated from the University of Wisconsin Whitewater, earning a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and minor in Race and Ethnic Cultures. She has always had a passion for beauty.

As a mother, Gladys became very concerned with the ingredients being offered in commercial hair products.She didn’t want to expose her daughter to chemicals that released formaldehyde or parabens that altered hormones. She was able to find some natural hair brands that offered great quality but unfortunately, did nothing for her hair type. Either the styling aids ‘sat on top’ of her hair unable to penetrate the shaft or the shampoos dried her hair out leaving a matted mess. After being encouraged by her husband, lots of prayer, and a whole lot of trial and error, Different Textures Nourishing your hair with the most care™ was born.

Gladys was able to invest in a few ingredients to make her first batch of hair butter, and it worked wonders on her daughters, hers and close family and friends hair.

She is owner of Divine Lily Love Boutique LLC, creator and founder of Different Textures Nourishing your hair with the most care, author of “Am I Just A Mom: A Christian woman’s guide to grasping who she is in Christ”, home-schooling mom, wife to an amazing husband and woman of God.


Personal note from Gladys:

I am so thrilled to be able to live out my dream of being a business woman and creator of a natural hair care line. I care very much about the health of others and so this line was born. I wanted to make products that could benefit every hair texture. As a woman with natural hair, I see so many representations of various textures in the media and cosmetic field, but I often see and feel the lack of representation for woman who have coarse, thick, kinky hair; such as mine. I wanted to create a hair care line that would make it to where I only had to moisturize my hair every 3 days. I wanted products that gave me slip and made detangling a breeze. I wanted products that promoted growth and aided in length retention and that’s what I have presented you all with. I truly hope that you are pleased with each product that comes from my heart to yours. Thank you so much for your support and I urge anyone who tries us out to please leave a review. ” – Gladys H.
