Superior Lore-Friendly Hair (SLF-Hair)
This is a simple mod that can improve the appearance of many NPCs in the game and your character as well. Superior Lore Friendly Hair is a texture replacer for vanilla hair - meaning, it doesn't need any esp nor it will not install new hairstyles to the game - it will just change the appearance of vanilla hair. Therefore, it will not have a big performance impact and, best of all, it will be automatically applied by the game to many NPCs.

SLF-Hair is unique among other vanilla hair replacers as it is the first one to actually improve on the texture's alpha channel to make the actual fine hair strands appear - ON VANILLA HAIR! Also, the normal map is improved to give hair a natural shine (looks really good when used with ENB).

- True High Defintion quality (2k)
- 100% Hand-made ultra-fine hair texture
- 100% Lore-friendly
- Enhanced Normal map for better "3D look" and shine
- Improved the alpha channel to make fine hair strands appear and for transparency effect
- Recolored with gradient tones for realistic look especially under good light
- Enhanced hair accessories textures
- Will affect only hairstyles that use the texture "" (by my estimate, it is used by 90% of humanoid NPCs)
- No performance impact, no esp, and no incompatibilities

- "Rough" version of SLF Hair - with completely new hand-made textures
- Closer to vanilla hair in appearance and tones but with fine details and high quality
- Uncompressed Normal Maps for clear detail even at 1K!
- Colors matched with vanilla facial hair
- Specularity neutralized (for less shiny "rough" look)
- Even more realistic and lore friendly than before!
