What would you do with her mane?

So when I got this girl I felt like a kid in a candy store. Look at that mane! I was so excited about braiding it and getting it beautiful....now I'm lost.
It's so light colored that if I put ANYTHING on it it collects dirt. I can't leave it out because it gets dread locks and takes hours to get out.
Today its beautiful out and I want to take advantage of that and wash it out and braid it. I have a tail bag and I plan on putting that on her tail, but what do I do with her mane?
I'm having some mane bags made for me, but they aren't here yet and I don't want to loose this beautiful day.
What would you guys do? Just condition it and braid it and let it get dirty? I don't just mean today, I want to know in general what you would do to.
I've looked everywhere for ideas, but I can't find anything. I had a friend as a kid that use to braid her horse's tail up in rags, but I never payed attention to how she braided it and I can't find any videos or directions on how to do it. Can I do this in her mane?
Oh, and I did put coconut oil in it a few days ago. What a disaster! It's too cold here to do that Her braids are stiff as a board right now


Thanks!
Sorry the picture is so big. I can't figure out how to make them smaller

She's pretty. Could you braid her mane along her neck adn get one of the blanket things that goes all around her neck up to her head? Other than that I have no idea. We have a cremello stallion that we just let his get dirty and wash it before we go anywhere.

Being that I do the hunter thing I would pull it short and not have to worry about it.

For now I guess I would wash it and braid it down and yes, it will get dirty but it will not get tangled and a mess.

Braid it, and buy her a Sleazy hood. That should keep it in decent shape.

Really, it ain't rocket science. No need to make it any more complicated than that!

I love Lazer Sheen it actually helps keep my manes and tails clean and brushable, granted when they go outside they roll and get dirty but when I spray lazer sheen in the mane and tail and brush it every other day they don't get to bad and the dirt doesn't cling to it.

Her mane is stunning! Yep... just braid it. Is she stall kept? If she isnt she may rub her mane out in the pasture.
