Mane issues.

I have been working on my horse's mane for a while, thinning it out and getting it to the length I want it. But, a small section of his mane does not want to lay down. It sticks out awkwardly. The rest of his mane lays down fine, and it is the same length as the rest. Any suggestions to help it lay down? I've tried washing it and braiding it. Any suggestions of how to fix this?

Mane tamer/Sleezy?

Use regular hairspray, eventually it will train to stay where you want it.

Ecolicious Equestrian has an excellent mane cream that can be found on their website and is called In Control. My gelding had one small section of mane that would flip to the wrong side. I used this cream to keep that section braided down the correct side. It left the mane moisturised, conditioned and soft once it dried but provided a nice tacky feel when applied which made braiding easier.
