Take a picture from the other side when you have the chance, and post it!
I'm a braider/ bander and have done the impossible mane.
At the last big AQHA circuit I was at, I saw a western pleasure gelding that looked a lot like yours, that had a gorgeous long thick mane and it was banded! I really really liked the look, and the judges did too because he won the class out of about 30! Maybe try doing that? Then again, I don't know your horse or the mane, but it's just a suggestion
