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.

Hey everyone!
I retextured this hair by Helga, it's one of my absolute favourite meshes but I wasn't to fond of the textures/colours, so I slapped on my edit's of Yuxi's textures.

Things you should know:
Works from Teen-Elder
Colours are Binned and Familied, with a grey shade for Elders linked to 'Apocalypse' - You MUST have this colour in your game if you want the grey to work!

Colours are (from left to right):
Top Row: Vanilla, Bullet, Flame, Magma
Bottom Row: Earth, Cookie, Hematite, Apocalypse

Helga's site has been dead for a long time, and thanks to her new TOU, the mesh is included.

Model Credits:

Eyes (Contacts): Kamikitten
Makeup: Icedmango, Bruno, Anva
Skintone: Cutephail
Tops: Cosette, Sentate

Hey Love it - But where do you get the 'Apocalipse' (Yes, my spelling is appalling) colour you said that the grey hair required? And what happens in-game if you don't have that colour, and your sim becomes an elder?

God I love that quote.

The Apocalyspe colour is in the .rar file, and should be labelled clearly. And I think Elder's hair will be replaced by a default maxis hair instead.

Thanks Calline :D
