Please GIVE THANKS and FAVORITE if you like! And also let me know if you have any problems. Thank you!

UPDATE 2014-01-27: I fixed a few things.
  • On the left side of the forehead, you could still see the braids. I forgot to edit both face and scalp diffuse for my edit; so that is now fixed
  • I fixed the crashing problem. It was because of the male and child packages. When I packaged them in DABOOBS, I used the instance of the from the adult textures. So basically, if you don't have the adult hair package with the male and or child package, the game would crash. I have fixed this by packaging them together.
  • I added a new control.

Hello Everyone!

First, let me say a big THANK YOU to robokitty (aka Kittyklan) for creating her Half-Braided Fro. I fell IN LOVE with this hair immediately! However, I wished that it was a full fro. I was going to ask if it were possible for her to do a full fro, but she was busy. So, I asked for permission to make a full hair, and several months later, I got a yes! I was thrilled!

What I did was copy and edit planes from the right side of the fro, to the left. I had to do this about a thousand times because I kept messing up. I finally got it right. I also got rid of the cornrows.

This is a new mesh. You can have both the original half-braided hair and my mesh in your game at the same time (if you game can handle it).
I kept robokitty's textures and control, but I am using Anubis's hair colors (link below).

Enough talking, here is the hair. And yes, I know. This is a big hair.
And yes, again, the nose. Nothing i can do about it.

I will do smaller versions soon.


You can find this in "Hair" in Create-a-Sim (CAS)
Total Polycount: 18625
Base Game Compatible
Categories: Everyday, Formal, Sleep, Athletic, Swim, Outdoor, Naked, Maternity, & Career
Gender: Both Male & Female
Age: Child - Elder
Channels: 4 Channels, but only 3 Channels appear visible. The Base and Highlight Channels "blend". It was like that in the original textures.
Textures: I didn't change the textures from the original package, so it is still the same.

I SERIOUSLY recommend (completely optional) downloading Le Pallette ~ Hair Colors by Anubis360. All of the color channels perfectly match the hair. You can also use any other hair colors you wish.
