Since 2014 I use materials in the hair I make. Materials will make the hair appear more realistic. I also include hair with no materials because not everyone likes it. How it looks depends on your settings and the windlight you use.
I get a lot of questions about the materials and thought it would be a good idea to show you my settings and some examples, so here it goes 🙂

Strawberry Singh made a great video about materials, you can find it here:
I have been searching for more information about the materials feature in Secondlife but did not find much more than Strawberry already did.
