Why is My Sims 4 CC Hair Shiny?

If you have just installed a certain Sims 4 custom hair and suddenly there’s a glitch, you might be asking yourself, “why is my Sims 4 CC hair shiny?”

If your sim hair looks weirdly shiny, usually, there is a simple, quick solution that you can try to fix the problem.

Why is my sim hair shiny?

The very first reason that your sim hair looks shiny is that the hair CC actually has that shine. The creator might intentionally make the hair to be shiny. However, it should look beautiful, not weird.

Go to the CC creator’s page where you get the download button (a page where you download the CC). Usually, a CC creator will place a picture to help us imagine how the CC will look in the game.

So, try to find the picture of that CC. Does the hair look shiny in the picture? Does the hair look exactly the same in YOUR game and in the picture? If it does look shiny in the picture, then most possibly it’s a normal shine and you don’t need to worry about it.

Now, the real problem is when your sim hair looks extra shiny in a strange way.

Does your sim hair look super shiny like plastic? If so, most likely, it’s related to your graphic setting on your game, not the custom content itself.

To fix this problem, turn off the laptop mode and set your graphics quality to medium, and change your sims to high. If that still doesn’t work, change your sims to ultra. You can also adjust your resolution.

And that’s how you can easily make the weird shine goes away. I hope this method works and you can play TS4 again happily!

If this method doesn’t work, I’m very sorry but maybe you can try using another CC for your sim hair ☹

Don’t worry, when a certain CC doesn’t work, there are still so many Sims 4 CCs out there to replace it!
