This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.

For the Natural Redhead Project: 18 retextures/recolors of melodie9's all-ages short female dreadlocks.

These are all color-binned and made with Legacy BodyShop. Since it's apparently useless to put more than one hair per bin in the same family group, the warm black, chocolate brown, auburn and beach blonde colors have all been grouped together. The rest have been left ungrouped. Sorry - if I can figure out a way to make family groups work better in-game, I'll start doing them all again. :/

If you want to download all the colors in one go, they are packed in the "alkaloid_melodie9ufdreads_ALLCOLORS" file. If you just want the 4 colors in the family group (warm black, chocolate brown, auburn and beach blonde), they are also packed in a file called "alkaloid_melodie9ufdreads_4basiccolors.rar" If you want to pick and choose some of the other shades, the rest of the individual hair files have also been packed separately, with those colors are listed in the file names.

Colors:
Reds: Dark Auburn (with brown eyebrows), Auburn, Ginger*, and Strawberry Blonde.
Blonds: Beach Blonde*, Ash Blonde, Champagne Blonde and Platinum Blonde.
Browns: Dark Brown*, Chocolate Brown, Cool Brown and Light Brown.
Blacks: Warm Black (a black with subtle brown highlights), and True Black*.
Custom: Snow White, Olive Drab, Frostbite (a very pale lavender that ages to an even paler lavender for elders), and Electric Lizard (bright green for teens through adults, blonde for the younger ages, and white for elders).

If you want to see the labeled individual colors, please look at one of my more recent recolor posts. I have standardized colors. A color chart for this many files takes an hour and a half to make, and I wasn't feeling up to it this time.

*Pictured in the solo in-game screenshots. The brown says "chocolate brown" in the title, but I goofed. It's really dark brown.

The natural colors either turn white or salt + pepper for elders. Snow White and Olive Drab do not change for elders. Frostbite and Electric Lizard are explained above.

Terms of use for these textures/recolors: These files may be redistributed via shared sims, so long as those sims are available in the free section of any site, and I am credited with a link back to my profile on this site. You may not charge money or a membership fee for my files: this includes "donation files" on an otherwise free site, and sites where my files would only periodically be free.

These files may also be shared via Neighborhood 99, so long as I am properly credited.

You may recolor these files so long as your derivative works are only posted on free sites as described in the previous paragraph.
