I tried the Pattern Pusha (currently gathering dust in the back of the cupboard) on dry hair yesterday after reading this and have to say it seemed to work quite well. My second day hair is a ponytail and this is what I had yesterday, by the end of the day it was frizzy and untidy and I had to got to work so I just smoothed some PP over it and it took the frizz away and left my hair nice and soft. I usually just damp it down with a bit of water which tends to make it a bit hard (I presume re-activating the mousse that's in there) so the PP worked better. Glad to find a use for it, I hate wasting money!
