Mane taming - mane flips to wrong side

I need some suggestions for taming our mare's mane. In just the past month or so, part of her mane will flip over to the wrong side of her neck. We brushed it, wetted it down and sleazied it in place, but nothing seems to work...

Any ideas?

Have you tried using thick braids to train it to fall correctly?. Sometimes a combo of thick braids + sleazy does the trick.

For my gelding, who's mane sounds similar, I use mane n tail. I band it and leave the bands in till they start breaking and do it again. It does help, but over winter etc... It still flops back over. But if I leave it loose after banding it, it'll stay for a few days loose.
I'm not sure "banding" is the correct term, but it's the only one I got.
you can see how his is split here.

And how I use rubber bands to train it over

My mini gelding as a very thick unruly mane. It was so heavy it was pulling his crest over. So to get it to switch sides I braided it to the side I wanted in pretty big braids then attached a fishing weight to the end for 2 days. Worked wonders. It's now laying totally on the other side. You don't need much weight at all. Just enough to keep the braids from sticking straight up in the air. Also don't do the braids too tight because you don't want them to pull and be uncomfortable.
