I did add just a little bit of MO to a small water bottle filled with water (has a mist type spray) and tried it on the top layer of hair as a sort of refresher after being out in the heat/wind and I think it did help a little with the frizz. I just sprayed it on and sort of carefully smoothed it down.

So if my other method doesn't end up working out maybe I can fall back on this for the top frizzes once it dries at least. I doubt it will fix them altogether, and I wouldn't want to use too much too often to avoid build-up of the oil, but any little bit helps sometimes.

I'm not sure how normal this is for you, but hair that frizzes when it's still wet can often be a sign of build up or of really dry hair. What conditioner are you using on your hair? What routine are you using? I feel like a moisturizing conditioner is really good at defining the hair and preventing frizz. I can apply conditioner to sopping wet, straight out of the shower hair without a problem though. My hair only frizzing if I manipulate it to much after plopping water out. Is it possible that instead of using a leave in, you could just leave in a bit of your conditioner from the showerand maybe just mix the mineral oil with your shower conditioner and gently rinse a little out, while leaving a bit in.
