Flyaway Mane Hairs.

My mare has nasty flyaway hairs near the top of her mane. They're short stick straight up like a mohawk. I tried incorperating them into my pasture braids, but they always wiggle out. Even when I take her hair out of the braids, they still stick up. It just doesn't look neat. There are a lot of them; it isn't just a few strays. It's a real bother, all these wild loose hairs.

Should I just cut them? Stick them down with gell whenever I braid? (Which isn't working well currently.) Calm my diva self down?

It's just when I take her places and try to look pretty... She looks like she was electrocuted. Grrrr.

I would only worry about it when you're going somewhere. If you really want to, buy a mesh mane tamer and she can wear it all the time. They actually work really well.

I really don't recommend cutting them... they'll just grow back, and probably more obvious than before. Everyone has baby hair (that's what I call it) have you tried flipping the mane to the other side and braiding?

I'd leave them alone. Then when you're braiding for a show, make sure you dampen the mane, spritz with hairspray (I use pump bottle not an aerosol) and make small tight braids. This will minimize flyaways or any overly untidy appearance.

Leave them to grow, for shows use hair spray or a matt hair gel!

Hehe, I have those darned things even on my hair. You know, those short hairs that seem to stick out -___- I affectionately call them "Sticklets" >.< I would not worry about them, unless you are going to a show. Then maybe get a mane tamer mesh thing, or a sleezy.
