This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Okay, so here's the thing: I love Compulsive D's dreads , but I don't like how they create such a sharp line between the hair and the face. So I made these!!

These are afro-looking hairlines that will make the transition between hair and face more soft.
They are hand painted and come in three colors: Blonde, black with a tint of blue and black with a tint of brown.
They are unisex and are I have therefore made them face paints so eveyone can use them.

Recolor if you want (I'd love if you did), but please include a link to this post. You can also upload these with your full sims, with full credit. No other ways of redistribution is allowed.

sillo pixel & bean made 13 wonderful recolors of these, and also fixed the alpha problem. Check them out!

You did a good job on these. This will really add to the realism of what having locs is like...thanks for your hard work. I just couldn't see having locs and then perfectly lined edges...lol.

These are excellent, thank you! I always liked the Compulsive D dreads, but that sharp line kept me from using them. No longer. ^_^

I still love this idea, but... the texture bleeds over onto the teeth, too. Since my sims with dreads have black hair, it's very noticable. Is there any chance you might fix and re-upload?
