Copy the ApachiiSkyHair.ESM, meshes and textures folder and paste it in your Data folder

If you have an old version of the mod installed (v.1.0) delete the old esp, newer version of the mod don't use an esp only an esm file,
and if you have the old esp installed and active at the same time as the new esm you will have double hair in the showracemenu.

Activate the mod in the Skyrim Launcher.

If you can't select files in the launcher go to - Documents\My Games\Skyrim
- Open SkyrimPrefs.ini
- In the text look for
bEnableFileSelection=1 (if this is 0 change it to 1)

- Remove from Data\textures\actors\character\hair\ the folder - apachii

How to give your new character Apachii Sky Hair:
In the character creation window you can browse through the hairstyles and choose, they are first in the hair selection before the Default "vanilla" hair styles.

How to change the hair on your existing character:
On PC, open console(`) and type showracemenu -enter- It brings up the character customization menu.

- Make sure you are in the third person view before editing your character, otherwise you will be invisible, and unable to see the changes made on your character

showracemenu- will NOT modify your attributes/skills/points/etc. unless you change the race, sex, or select a preset from the list.
Modifying purely cosmetic things like hair will leave your points unchanged.If the character moves it's hands in front like they were tied,
it's a clear indication that the skills will be messed up,if the hands remain parallel to the body it's fine.
A way to fix the modified attributes error is to simply re-equip your gear
You also need to re-enter (or change) your name

How to change the hair on an NPC:
Note-there is a bug in the Creation Kit that makes the NPC that you make changes to have color mismatch (Face/Body)
follow these guidelines to avoid the problem.

Creation Kit version:
Open Creation Kit with Skyrim.esm and ApachiiSkyHair.esm selected but not as active.
Locate the per-existing NPC you want to give new hair.
Edit the Actor > Character Gen Parts tab.
Under Base Head Parts list select the Apachii hair you want your character to use.
Choose preview full on your character, if you choose preview head the hair does not show on the character
Ignore any error messages you get about the tri files.
Click OK and close the characters window.
In the Object Window, find the base Actor you've just edited.
With the Actor selected in the list, press ctrl+F4. Click "Yes" when prompted to export.
This will create the necessary files in ...skyrim\Data\meshes\actors\character\FaceGenData\FaceGeom\Skyrim.esm,
Remove the textures files created in...\Skyrim\data\Textures\Actors\Character\FaceGenData\FaceTint\Skyrim.esm,

Make an esp with the character changes.
