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:
You can vis­it my web­site www.adelesupreme.com. Or fol­low me on Twit­ter @adelewashere, Insta­gram: Ade­le­supre­me and Tum­blr: SUCHGOODFOOD
