Braiding the mane over to one side helps alot! If you need the mane over to one side quickly, a water brush should do the trick!
Braid on one side, several times in a row.
It works really well if you just band the mane to the desired side after wetting it. Leave it in for a few days. Banding is better than braiding because it doesn't make the hair wavy and brittle.
I wash the main and then I brushit to the said that I want the main to be and the I washit agaib
I usually plait it to one side and leave it there for around a week or I will just tie the mane altogether and plonk it over one side for a week If you don't want the mane to be curly
Plat the main and leave in for cuple of days
