Adele Supreme // 4C Natural Hair Style Icon


Introduce yourself!
My name is Carole Adele “Supreme” Williams AKA Adele Supreme. I was born and raised in South Central LA. I am an artist, natural hair stylist, model, creative director and wardrobe stylist.

Why did you make the decision to go natural?
I’ve been natural my whole life. I used to beg my mother for a relaxer, but she always turned me down. I didn’t fall in love with my tresses until I reached high school.

How would you describe your texture?
My hair is predominantly 4c. The curl pattern is a lot looser in the front, but coarse nonetheless. It’s extremely thick and dense. I’ve cut my hair 4 times within the past 4 years in an attempt to keep maintenance low.

Describe your styling regimen over the course of the month.
I’m pretty lazy with my hair. Part of that is because I spend an abundant amount of time dealing with everyone else’s! And because I’m a pretty low maintenance chick. I plait my hair once every few days. I’ll use Shea Moisture Frizz-Free Curl Mousse and Alikay Naturals Moisture Rich Hair Parfait. I’ll either wear it out or pull it up. I spray it with The Roots Naturelle Braid & Conditioner spray daily. I comb my hair about once to twice a month (honestly). When my hair is combed, it expands to three times its size, which looks nice but gets in the way.


What does wash day look like for you?
Well, when it’s time for me to shampoo my hair, I’ll usually have someone else do it for me because it’s so thick and dense. I have a difficult time getting my scalp thoroughly cleaned. But when that day arrives, I use Gabel’s Lemon Fluff Shampoo first. It’s a throwback clarifying shampoo that’s been around for a pretty long time. I follow up with Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Shampoo as well as Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo. For a deep condition I use the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque and I’ll sometimes add a little coconut oil to my conditioner for extra lubrication.

Describe your favorite go-to hairstyle for days when you don’t have a lot of time to style.
I’ll give myself a large flat twist going up into a top knot. It’s simple, quick and adorable.

How do you combat shrinkage?
I blow out my hair once a month and I refrain from using an abundant amount of water based products. Water based products are essential for moisture, which is why I use The Roots Naturelle Braid & Conditioner spray daily, however I don’t over saturate my strands with hair milks/creams.

Tell us about your hair color?
I bleached and colored the blonde patch in my hair using the Wella Professionals system. A few months after that I colored it hot pink and then covered that up with an amber colored semi permanent from the Adore line. It hasn’t changed my texture. I just love the groovy mixture of colors going on right there. Looks like a Big Stick Popsicle when you part it.

What are some of your problem areas (if any) that require special care and attention?
My blonde patch isn’t necessarily a “problem” but it does require the most attention because it was bleached. I’m always sure to saturate that patch with plenty of moisturizer to prevent breakage.

What are 2 do’s for your texture?
Do moisturize

What are 2 don’ts for your texture?
Don’t shampoo hair without detangling first
