Introduce yourself!
A:
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?
A:
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?
A:
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.
A:
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?
A:
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.
A:
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?
A:
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?
A:
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?
A:
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?
A:
Do moisturize

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

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
A:
