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.
Here are four recolours of a beautiful hair mesh made by Agustin. The mesh was originally uploaded with a sim and only contained one colour - a lovely brown. I've used Agustin's texture and recoloured it the best I could, to create a complete set of colours that look nice on both Maxis-match and more realistic sims. My recolours are not perfect - they're pixellated in some spots - this was unavoidable due to the original texture quality, but it's not very noticeable when you're just playing from a normal distance, concentrating on your sim's antics and her pretty face. All files are colour-binned, family-linked, and compressed. They work for all ages - toddler to elder - and the black hair is required for the elder grey to work.

I've also updated the adult mesh's animation. The original animation was rather jagged and clipped through the sim's back when she moved. I tried to smooth out the animation and reduce that clipping. It's still not perfect, but it's better than it was. Unfortunately this fix is only available for the adult mesh. It was simply too frustrating for me to fix the other ages as it takes a lot of trial and error, MilkShape kept crashing relentlessly while working on this particular mesh, and I personally only plan to use the adult hair. This animation fix is completely optional - the recolours will work fine without it.

Remember to grab Agustin's mesh! It's required even if you choose to get the optional animation fix. The mesh is 3108 polys, which is pretty reasonable.

Additional Credits:
Special thanks to CatOfEvilGenius, whose similar mesh fix addons I examined in order to get the format of my addon file correct. 'Twas very helpful. So thanks, Cat! Ginormous thanks to Agustin too, of course - thank you for making this mesh, Agustin - it's exactly what I was looking for.
