My Sims hair colour

★★★ Newbie

I aged up my baby boy, and when I went into change appearance, I changed his outfit but his hair kept changing colour randomly. I didn't do anything to provoke the change and when I changed it back to black, and exited CAS, his hair was a different colour.

I am having this problem with one child in my world. Other children are not affected by this for some reason. 

 

His parents both have black hair. His hair randomly changes color. I noticed when I loaded the game and he had red hair something was off. I tried to modify him several ways and whenever I click confirm to close CAS or even just switch to one of his parents in the CAS screen, his hair always changes back to brown, red, or blonde. 

 

I have NO mods or custom content. I have tried to fix it through the mirror "change appearance", the dresser "plan outfits", I have also turned cheats on and tried to modify the child through CAS. But with or without cheats turned on his hair always changes to another color randomly (never black though...which is what his hair should be.)

 

I also noticed his eye color switches between several different shades of green and hazel. I don't know what his original eye color was because I only noticed this after trying to fix his hair several times.

 

The genetics are part of why I've always loved this game, and it's driving me crazy that I can't fix it.


EDIT: Now I have tried to recreate this glitch with other hair colors and it only seems to be the black hair color (for me) that will change randomly. If I change his hair on purpose to red, brown or blonde, it will keep those colors. It is only when I attempt to change it to black that it refuses to save the color and makes his hair red or blonde.

This thread is a bit of a mixture but there was one hair fixed in the recent patch.

 

Can I get some feedback from you guys ?

A couple of weeks ago I had a black haired teen who would suddenly go blonde and then go back to black...'once you go black you never go back'!

The same thing is happening to me at the moment. It still happens after I removed my mods folder, and it annoys me so much

For a special hair or any of them ?

 

Are you using custom content ?
