(1/1) Principled Hair BSDF and Hair BSDF aren’t working

***Everything I’m about to say works for the Hair BSDF too***

A lot of Blender issues that I seem to be having are easily fixed in Blender by simply switching over to Cycles Render.

I was unable to get the Principled Hair BSDF to work, and was only seeing this whenever, I tried manipulating any of the aforementioned Shader’s properties:

However, after a bit of Googling, I was able to came across a thread which quickly offered a solution.

I sometimes forget that Eevee is a relatively new renderer, only arriving on the scene with the release of Blender 2.8 in 2018. Therefore, it wouldn’t be as compatible with all the other functions as the Cycles Renderer would, which has been available since Blender 2.61 which came out in 2011.

Possible Solutions:
Step 1 |
Switch over to Cycles Renderer.

***If Step 1 doesn’t resolve the issue:
Step 2 | Make sure Data is selected in this drop-down menu.

…This is what I got after doing all that.
