Whitening Mane/Tail

So I have a palomino, and he has a an "okay" whiteish mane/tail and I can't find a fake tail to match his color since all the fake tails are much whiter for palominos. It has a yellow tint to it, and his tail even has black in it! Is there anything I can use to whiten them? I have used quick silver since he also has socks, and it seems to work on his socks, but not mane/tail. Any suggestions?

I use Wonder Blue Shampoo or White N Bright.

I have an all white horse so I have a few tricks up my sleeve. I got a concentrated blueing shampoo (REALLY concentrated) which I dilute for his body, but I just put it directly on his tail/mane and let it sit for about 5 minutes before rinsing off. I don't remember the brand, I'll check next time I'm at the barn.

Then to keep the tail white, I use a leave in whitener (should be able to find at TSC, it's in a spray bottle) and show sheen on the tail, braid it and wrap it (with vet wrap for long term, like over the winter, or in a tail bag if it's a day before a show). I usually don't have as many problems with the mane, but if it's stained after I wash it with a blueing shampoo I'll use the leave in whitener as well.
