Default Closing a Sew in Weave

Hello all! I have decided to start my growth journey utilizing full head sewn in weaves as a protective style. I have been pouring over all the weave threads and youtube videos that I can find. I will be going with the vertical braids and using my ayurvedic hair teas plus lots of moisture. So my questions are:

1) Is there anyone who has used ayurvedics while in sew ins? Did you get great growth?

2) Where can I find a really great tutorial/video/whatever on closing a weave without using a closure?

3) Does anyone have pictures of styles done with the top sewed closed? Am I only able to do styles with bangs to cover up the front of is it a little more flexible than that?

Thanks in advance!

oh ya...3) you are not limited to bangs....if you are relaxed...you can a few strands out to cover the tracks of the center piece if you decide to do side part

BHM has a great fotki tutorial on closing off a weave. The only natural looking ones I have ever seen that are full sew-ins use a closure or have bangs.

Here is the fotki: http://public.fotki.com/ThAbAdDeStBa...sewn_in_weave/

MsChanda on youtube has many sew in videos where she does closures.

When I wore my sew ins I used to use a dropper and put amla oil in my hair, I got pretty good growth from doing so, but I was also using other growth aids at the same time.

I'm all natural. I grew out my perm to about a little below my ears then whacked the rest off. So now I'm about neck length. And I do not want any of my own hair out. I think it would drive me crazy yo have to maintain that little bitty piece of hair!

Also I'm seeing that it seems not the best step to do a straight weave. It may look better if I at least have some wave especially if I am using synthetic. I was thinking about using the outre Batik. Anyone use that before? From what I read it makes an awesome weave.
