It looks very good, but you said you were going to leave it on for a week or so right? I would be careful, it may make her mane break and fall out. Are you doing this for show or to get her mane to lay down? If you are doing this just to get it to lay down, then you may want to just spray oil on it (unbanded) and keep a slinky on it at night. If for show do the same(after banding) the night before.
