    Banding a Mohawk?

    I have a show coming up this weekend, and I'm showing my filly in a few halter classes.
    Her mane is the proper length (the width of a hand), maybe even longer, but it stands up. While she looks adorable, that doesn't really cut it for shows!
    I feel like if I band her mane like normal, it will still stand right up. I have a sleezy for the night before, but I don't know how much it will help.
    Is there anything I could do to help keep it down? Would braiding partway down help?

    To make it lay down, after banding it, split the part at the base of the neck before the band, and flip the banded hair up and down through there, then pull tight.

    I don't know if I explained it very well lol.

    Took me a second, but I think I know what you're saying! Sorta like what the Conair Topsy Tail was going for.

    You band it and put it in a slinky overnight, works everytime!

    We used hair gel for my pony. Make the bands like little tubes on the side of the neck, not bunched up right up against the base. Tug on the hair underneath the bands, never on top. Put gel and hairspray on top. Then put slinky on overnight. I'll see if I can find a picture of mine.

    I know what you mean. The Thoroughbred I work with has a mohawk, and then would also have a long mane. After a few years it has become better at laying down.

    Band it, and afterwards spray it with water a ton! Pretty much drench it, then put your sleazy on. Only way we can get her's to lay down.
