When it comes to the sims 4, we know that most of the diversity we get in our gameplay comes from the fantastic work of custom content creators.

The game lacks enough textured hairstyles, so we need to seek out black hair cc to create sims that represent our different communities.

From Bantu knots, twists, and braids to locs, these hairstyles represent more than just a stylish appearance.

Many of these protective hairstyles have a deep history, and thanks to cc creators, we can discover them in more depth.

You will also find more hair options for your black sims in some of our other posts linked here and at the bottom of this article.
