Hi everyone, I'm trying to add hair to a model I made. I'm using Maya Hair and I"m getting a weird bulge on every root of the hair where it attaches to the scalp as in the image attached. The hair also comes out in thick patches and has lots of bald spots.

I want to make a hairstyle that is more flat on the roots all the way to the tip (please see image), any suggestions or help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, i am no expert, but try looking at the hairSystemShape node and adjusting the clump width and clump width scale to higher levels, if you have multi streaks adjust the spread...... as for the hair not laying flat at the scalp it could be a number of things.., not enough iterations the stiffness maybe even a collision object in the way also look at the start curve attract....Hope this helps in some way.
