august 2013 note: i am not currently playing the sims, but will keep updating this list with any hair recs brought to my attention. please send links if you have them!
i haven’t seen a resource list like this, so hopefully this will be useful if you’re wanting to put afro, dreadlock or braids on your black and mixed sims.
apologies in advance for a lot of these obviously afro styles being shown on white sims, i’m just using the pics the creators supplied.
these are all the hairs i could find search for things like dreads, dreadlocks, locks, braids, afro, ethnic hair. and can i just pre-emptively say, it might seem like there is “a lot” on offer here; but the amount pales in comparison to how many non-afro hairs are on offer (literally thousands), and regularly being created. meanwhile, every request for afro hair, especially requests for afro ts2 meshes to be converted, get hijacked by people looking for hair that is basically the same as what’s already on offer three times over.
all hairs are free unless shown otherwise by ($$$)
