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.

411 for anybody thinking this is a low poly download...the loose curls are over 9000 polycounts...9792, to be exact. Such a shame. :( It's still beautiful, though.

Before I decided to give hairs a chance, I was disappointed with wave after wave after wave of mediocre, flat and unimaginative hair. Because I was deluged with so many "nice tries", I developed a custom hair prejudice. But then today, I thought to myself, "That's not fair, ijustneedsomeeyes. How could you judge an entire category of custom content, just because the ones you didn't like happened to surface higher?" So I decided to search for hairs here, to see if there was something I actually wanted. Lo and behold, I then found your loose curls regency hairstyles. Thank you for this upload.

Update: Just went through WCIF?...my Downloads folder is like a refugee camp now.

Hi and to the point - the curls and meshes in general are low poly. Nothing(i really mean not a mesh of these) is higher than 3,000polys in any case. I am very aware of that - these are not my first hairs,so i'm here to assure you - you're mistaking. If you have SimPE try checking it for yourself - these are what polycounts i've sated in the main post. Please,if you're not familiar with polys try looking for tutorials at the wiki - you'll see that i'm not wrong with calculating my hair mesh polycounts.

Just returned here after a long time and my SimPE says it is 9792. Of course, I checked with the Folder Scanner, so I could be wrong. I'll check the mesh directly instead.

Update: Alright, I checked only the mesh directly and it seems that I was mistaken, I do apologize. Apparently, the Folder Scanner seems to have done a weird thing where it added ALL the ages together to give the over 9000 number. *doh*

Well now...I also owe you a big thank you, lidiqnata. For now that I know that the Folder Scanner is stupid, I must take a visit to some other hair meshers...

(Update to checking other hairs: Newsea and Peggy are still "whoacount". Drat!)

I both apologize and thank you,
