The STYLES are OK, it's the COLOR that bugs me. Black hair can be jet black with some shine, or black that has a bit of purple; there are LOTS of natural black shades. But the practically flat GREY that Maxis calls black offends me. Is there a mod that makes the black...well, BLACK?

There is a texture replacement mod out there somewhere - I'll check my files. The reds were better too.

Edit: maybe this one. I can't actually remember now and I'm a bit busy to check files.

Wow, THAT is a bit of work! It's a lot more than I was looking for, and her previews all show red hair, but it looks so good I have hope the blacks look as good. So THANKS; I trying them.

Well, report back 'cos I can't remember whether that's the one I have and I agree it does look pretty nice. I do remember the red stuff though.

There's also this one, which is a more Maxis Match recolour of Aquilegia's originals (and Ja's).

I tried them and generally liked them, but found that in some cases the hair had been altered more than I wanted, for example straight hairs turned wavy. I mean to go back and check them all a hair at a time at some point to find which hairs do work for me. Because, while the colours could do with a lot more consistency, and some of them need less blurry textures, I too like the Maxis hairs pretty much the way they are.
