Have  you heard of invisible braids / tree braids? I'm thinking of trying that style only with some leave out. 

It would be the same amount of leave out like in this pic of brazilian knots -->

They would be single braids like this -->

The purpose of the leave out is to make it look more natural while having stands flowing. It would basically be a weave but with the flexibility of braids so that I can do high ponytails and stuff.

I attempted this myself a few months ago....not the best braider so some braids fell out but it lasted me a good 2 weeks or so until I decided I wanted to go back to clip in extensions. I did have this professionally done twice. The first time I had gotten a too straight texcture so I had to relax it....and the second time, I had a curly style but but took it out because I hated the type of hair I had gotten. 

I want to try this for protective styling and also hair growth. My hair grows best in braids. I'm the type of person who likes to go hiking, swimming, biking, kayaking, etc so I don't really have the time to deal with my itchy clip in extensions. I am also natural and there's a seller on Aliexpress who has hair that matches my texture pretty good. They sell the same hair in bulk.

One concern is I like to put gel in my hair to slick back my hair. I'm concerned there may be too much gel build up or something. But i can always do a different alternative. 

What do you think? Is it doomed to fail? Should I try thicker braids (pencil thickness) and have it get thinner so i get to near my leave outr? I'm a college student so I don't have much money to pay to get it professionally done (I make my clip ins, order from inexpensive Aliexpress) but it'd be nice to put it in a protective style til the end of summer so that I can go about my summer classes, job, and also my summer adventures. Do you think it's best to get it professionally done or try it myself?

I notice many women with tight braids like that in the front . You may loose your hairline . Post your topic in the braid forum until members check in . I think we have a topic in weaves on the first or second page .
