Black streaks in hair

★★★★ Novice

Ok so my sim has red hair as you see in the pic but every hair style and color gives her this black streak that won’t go away she’s the only person this happens to I tried a lot of things like removing my mods, restarting my game nothing helps have this happen to someone before? I’m thinking I’m the only one because no one ask this question before can anyone help.. And suggestions?

@shondabae143 Please, even though you have tried removing the Mods before, etc., try doing it again in exactly this manner following every step in the order directed:

  • Exit your game then exit Origin. Copy the Mods folder from your 'The Sims 4' folder onto your desktop (for future reference) then delete the mods folder and the localthumbnailcache.package file in your 'The Sims 4' folder and restart the game and so that the game will re-create the folder.
  • Then run a game repair [ Open Origin, click 'Game Library' then right-click Sims 4 > Repair Game ]. Make sure to let it run until it has completed all repairs (it will do the base-game first, then run through each of your expansions/packs). After that, please see if the issue has stopped.
    (If It fixes the situation you can re-add your mods/cc one at a time to see if one was conflicting with the function/causing the glitch - but do not re-add the old config file from the old mods folder, as it is possible for it to have become corrupted also.)

Please let us know how it goes.
