This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
It was not easy to convert this hair but this was something I really wanted to do at any cost and is finally done.
There are some issues because I tried to reduces polygons as much as possible because the original mesh polycount is very high.
For Males only, available to teenagers, young adults and adults.
I hope you enjoy!
Please leave a comment!



Polygon Counts:
LOD0 - 7396
LOD1 - 5652
LOD2 - 2893
LOD3 - 1370

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

This is one of the best hairs I have ever seen! the colour flows so well, highlights are perfectly placed, and the hairs themselves flow into each other like melted butter. I'm so impressed! Definitely a download for me!

You have no idea how much I appreciate your keeping the poly counts low on the meshes that you upload! This game seems to be pretty persnickety about the custom content installed. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
