The Sims 4 CC Hair- Blonde Streaks Bug (FIX)

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

So i found out that the fix for the custom content blonde hair streak bug is to turn off laptop mode, however i had been experiencing very bad lag problems every time i turned it off so i gave up trying to fight it, however, i played around with the settings for a little bit and found that they DID reduce the lag a LOT, eventually it got to a point where my game was completely playable with reduced lag as well as having reasonably good graphics and those horrible blonde streaks in my CC hair were gone!

The settings i use for my game are these:

Sims- Very High

Objects- Medium

Lighting- Medium

Reflections- Low

Visual Effects- Medium

Edge Smoothing- Off

3D Scene Resolution- High

View Distance- Low

Uncompressed Sim Textures- Unchecked

Post Processing Effects- Unchecked

Laptop Mode- Unchecked (YOU MUST LEAVE LAPTOP MODE UNCHECKED TO ENSURE YOU WONT GET THE AWFUL BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS!!!)

I hope this helps some of you to enjoy the sims 4 custom hair while also having your game run smoothly Standard smile

P.S: Screenshots are provided to show what the graphics and hair looks like in these settings!

Happy Simming!

I took care of it @lambinabush no worries. Only I can't put the first message as the solution, because that's normally the question.
