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.
I initially put off doing this because the other hair gave me PTSD from all the groups (9!!), but this one turned out to be surprisingly straightforward, with 1 group for the hair and 1 group for the bandanna! Texture-wise, I replaced the specular (no shine), normal map (more definition!) and control (better highlights!), and replaced the scalp and face textures with references to basegame ones to lower the filesize.

Then I tried using the regular texture on it and adjusting the alpha, and it looks surprisingly good! I think the poofiness makes all the difference

  • You can have all of them in game at the same time, they don't conflict.

  • From the Life's a Beach set, but the male hair isn't required. Original filename: amHairSTORE03MedDreads.
  • This hair doesn't have a channel for the roots, since they're covered up.
