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.
Hello! I have found another mesh that I hope you enjoy. This is the female afro style that was hidden in the game. It seems slightly tilted. Almost like a melting cake. The afro shows up for teens-elders. Doesn't require anything. Enjoy!

Edit : Small update, now this no longer has the custom content star. Download the new zip file if you don't want the star. File size is also smaller.

You can do what ever you want to my uploads, use them as a base or whatever, you don't have to credit me, but it would be nice if you did and if you sent me a link to your upload. You may make recolors of my stuff and host them on pay only sites or in donation packs. Please do not take them as they without crediting me.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Wow, thanks! I'd seen this in old advertising pics way back when, but had always just assumed it was another case of the "beehive" hair and could never be found. This is great!

I always wanted a female afro, but it seems like the one that maxis hid in the game wasnt the original picture ones. The pictures showed a more roundish and not so flat of a top. Oh well

Take a look at a new sims2 chat site ran by Tease. There are mods and we are working to get teh site off of its feet. You can look around and if you feel like joining that would be great for the site. Thanks

Just because its already been found doesn't mean anything. There are many recolors of the same mesh from XM sims are you gonna start telling people "this has already been done?"

Good job I think it rocks!

For those of you saying that it has already been extracted. I set it up so that it doesn't waste space on the computer. DJ_Mur3's version causes duplication with textures that wastes space on your computer.

Yeah, by DJ Mur3 and he has it in the correct color bin. The mods should have caught this, it's not your fault.

Cool! Though nina calenite looks rather stupid with an afro! (I think its her!)

lol! Well yes, I did do this a while back, but it looks like yours is great too. I don't know much about textures taking up extra space or anything, but hopefully yours fixes that.

Oh, and btw simsbaby- it's Mur* not Mer.

Oh, I didn't know that. I just like that his are in the color bins. I don't know much about meshing. Well, I gave you 5 stars anyway because you deserve it! *Peace*

Also, I know this isn't a copy or anything. They are a little different.
