Default The Subject of Hair Re-textures and Knowing What to Get
Currently combing through the Sims 3 Hairs Archives to select what to get for my game and never realized the amount of choices that have expanded for the game.
I understand that quality of re-textures is subjective to everybody differently, but it would be nice to see comparisons of different re-textures to make that choice rather than installing them and deciding in-game.

For instance, suddenly it seems since the last time I did this, July Kapo has burst out of the woodwork with many re-textures of her own. Personally, I can't tell if they're better than other's or just appear to focus on highlights in the hair.
The same goes for any number of creators out there. I know some like the shiny, some like the smooth and others go for the strange. It's just a bit of a nightmare to pick out who does what well so I can keep my duplicates to a minimum.

Anyone know if there's a way to compare? Anyone have a strong preference to a particular creator?

I personally prefer matte style retexures, ala PaintMeKatty. I know a lot of people like the hyper shiny hair, and some like a bit of shine. Some even like adjust shine (I don't, because it seems reaaaaally greasy).

But I honestly think that PaintMeKatty and other matte retextures are the best and fit in with the game well.

Well now I have ANOTHER one to get stuff from. She wasn't even on the main lists... Thank you.
I've grabbed some of hers already - I like the options she provides. I agree about the matte textures. Not a fan of the shiny here, for the most part.
