    try putting clay on the hair. brush off clay when dry. most of the time it works. or try one of those nitting plastic things. don't know what you call them. they have little squares all over it. wet hair down and stable it down. give a day or so. cant remember what you call that thing. you get it in a sewing section. maybe some one on here can help.

    I use my Pro-1 hide paste like a hair gel. When dry it brushes right out.

    Ditto on the clay. I've seen several dermists use it.

    Clay works good for me. I learned this tip on here years ago.

    Go to a pet supply that sells things for horses. Buy your self some hair gel for horses "Show Sheen" , (this is just one brand). Hold the hair in place with gauze or perforated plastic sheet. Works great for show horses that are having a bad hair day...
