This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
These are 50+ custom hairs across all ages and genders using my Maxoid Hair System. What is the Maxoid Hair System, you may ask? Well, I'm glad you asked!

Maxoid was created as a result of my dislike of current hair systems. My main complaint with a lot of hair textures is how liney they are. Real hair isn't always perfectly straight and has lots of fine details and scratches and misplaced strands. So I set out to fix that by making my own!

The texture is a blend of Poppet's v2 and the base hair texture from TS3 which has a lot of details and lines in it which makes it suit my needs, and the final blend has a really pretty "sheen" like effect that gives it some dimension.

The colors are edits of my personal favorite hair colors from Remi and Pooklet. I edited them to be closer to the maxis hair colors while still being modern:
  • Black is Remi's v2 Black, darkened and given a slightly cooler tone
  • Brown is Remi's v3 Brown, which finally doesn?t have a sickly yellow undertone on it. I gave it a cooler blue hue, which I love!
  • Blond is Pooklet's Incendiary, but it?s more of a warmer honey blonde.
  • Red is Pooklet's Molotov but less Red and more warm? I wanted a mix of the Remi-style Red and the NHS style Red, and I got it! (it?s my fav)
  • Gray is Pooklet's Mail Bomb. but significantly desaturated and darkened. I hate gray MM hairs are so platinum and they don?t work on darker sims. Now we actually have a realistic gray!

I retextured 50+ of my personal favorite meshes and I love how they all turned out. Mostly for women, some for men. I will be retexturing lots of more hairs soon!

Default OP sent me this link for this download
I hope this is allowed, as this download is not working as a .rar. Does not extract properly
"If you're having trouble with the parted downloads, just download the full file up here on my Tumblr: There's a simfileshare link that just has the entire file, no rars."

Best CC pack on this site! You managed to create some beautiful hairs that don't look too out of place among all the other Maxis content, which is exactly what I wanted. Thanks so much!

the extracting error comes from 7-zip
