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.

Hello there!

This is probably to most time consuming project I ever made ... I started this hair months ago and it had about 30 versions since then, starting from a horrible "huge head syndrome" hair mesh and step by step becoming into something more bearable
It still looks blocky compared to other high-end custom hairs around, because I had to reduce the polygon count in order to keep all those layers; originally it would exceed up to about 16k polys if I decide to make it smoother My goal was to make a thick and silky look, but I didn't want to go all the way realistic, so it came up pretty close. The back isn't perfect, but I did what I could to make it look better than it was (you should see version Nr.1... )

Important information:

- Hair for females, teen to elder.
- Available in all clothing categories, maternity and career included.
- 2 highlight versions: EA highlights and Shine highlights. You can have both at the same time.
- Suitable for fat Sims.
- Breast slider capable.
- Due to multiple layers, polygon count is higher than most of my previous hairs - 7806 polys. This is about 3000 polys more than detailed EA hairs.
- The textures were made by the awesome textures guru - Anubis360.
