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.
Not too much to say here--I saw a gorgeous male hairstyle on Tumblr that I desperately needed for some of my toddlers and children, but it was teen-elder only, alas! Fortunately the maker was generous enough to allow me to convert it down for our little boys, so they don't have to be deprived All LODs included for both age groups, not enabled for random, enabled for most reasonable categories including nude so it stays on in the shower, base-game compatible.

A couple of things to note:

1) This is a very detailed, dense, high poly hair (12000+ polys for LOD0), so please use sparingly so as not to overstress your machine.
2) This hair doesn't really have a highlights channel and is almost all roots/base/tips. Dreadlocks don't have highlights for the most part, but just putting it out there so there are no surprises.

If you are interested in having the original hair for teens-elders, it is available here.

As always, I hope you and your sims enjoy <3

Polygon Counts:
LOD0: 12670 polys
LOD1: 8721 polys
LOD2: 5543 polys
LOD3: 3627 polys
