How Do i view particle hair in the 3d view window as if it was rendered?
I want to see all parent and children particle hairs so i do not have to render the model over and over again to see if i got the hair just right. Any help anyone? Thank you for your time. :smiley:

Use the latest stable blender version from Blender.org. This works for both Cycles and Blender Internal. If you are using blender version around year 2012 then you may not have been able to view the Rendered shading in Blender Internal.

Just in case if you may also need this for particle edit mode. Turn on Children to view both parent and Child particles.
Note: Go into object mode to view your particles in Rendered view. If you stay in particle edit mode and turn on Rendered view, then your particles will seem they have disappeared.
