BF On The Case -#SecretToGoodness: Part 1, The Mystery Begins…

I’ve always loved a good mystery. I blame my mystery-loving Mom and Perry Mason.
So when I received this mystery box in the mail, I was excited to be on the case.

It's a BF Mystery... #SecretToGoodness

So why is this a mystery? A box filled with hair goodies to (hopefully) make my locks more lovely? What’s mysterious about that?

Well, my sleuthing compatriots, the mystery is that I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT PRODUCTS I’M TRYING!!! And for a beauty blogger, that can be a bit on the scary side.

But I’m excited. I have my Sherlock hat on, my magnifying glass out, a mirror and an open mind.

Let’s start with the facts, shall we?

Fact 1: I have a hashtag to use while on the case: #SecretToGoodness.

Fact 2: These unmarked golden bottles came in a cute box and are ready to party with my hair.

Fact 3. Um… Oh wait. Those are the only facts I have.

Anyway, I will be bringing you updates as to how the case is going, how my hair responds to the products and when I finally crack it (as in when the products are revealed to me).

So join me on the case, won’t you?

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Christine Shampoo & Conditioner by Van Thomas Concepts

Listen, it’s hard to find the right shower buddy.

As a girl who gets regular keratin treatments, it’s sometimes hard to find a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner that deep cleanses and conditions without stripping.

Well, I met a girl who gets the job done. Her name is Christine and she is glorious. Not just glorious though, she actually produces gooooorgeous results.

The blonde isn't Christine. It's Kirbie of PopSugar. Look at that shine on my dark hair!! Thanks, Christine!

The Christine Shampoo¬†($18) uses magical (well, I think it’s magical) micro-lather technology to deep cleanse – all the way from scalp to ends! Hair feels squeaky clean without feeling stripped which is exactly how I like it!

And the Christine Reconstructive Conditioner replenishes nutrients, oils and protein vital to healthy, heavenly hair without weighing it down.

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Meet my new shower buddy, Christine!

Sulfate-and-paraben-free, it’s perfect for any cut, color or texture.

Yep, that is the truth about Christine. I’m utterly smitten. So smitten that she’s become someone I shower with quite regularly.



BF Asks: Who are you showering with these days?

Tress Tuesday: Honey, I’m Home – Welcome DryBar on West 3rd Street!

In December, Drybar moved near my ‘hood on West 3rd Street – which is basically like that guy you’ve always had a crush on moving right down the street from you and making your dreams come true‚Ķall while giving you a beautiful blowout and serving you mimosas.

Drybar in my hood? Honey, I'm home!!


Yep, I’ve had my share of other blowouts in the area over the years but none really compare to the original Drybar. They’re consistent, they’re stylish, they’re friendly, they’re effective and I always leave all relaxed, coiffed and comely in less than an hour for only $40.

Lovin' my Drybar hair…and my margarita at the airport… (my Mai Tai 'do styled by Jud Ashouri at Drybar on West 3rd Street in Los Angeles)

Another bonus? They don’t charge extra for hot tool use (curling irons, rollers, flatirons, etc.) so you don’t feel like you’re getting overcharged.

Plus, how can you not feel heavenly and happy with all that cheerful yellow? Add in the fact that the new location is next to both a Benefit boutique and Magnolia Bakery and you can color me one happy girl.

All that yellow AND Magnolia Bakery and Benefit Cosmetics as neighbors? Color me one happy girl!

Of course, I’ve already been to this location quite a few times and found my favorite stylist‚ĶJud Ashouri.

With my Jud at the new Drybar on West 3rd Street

Jud not only gives a great blowout and style but she’s cool, stylish, honest, witty, and wise way beyond her years. Like I want to be friends with her because I feel like I could learn a lot from this girl. And the scalp massage I got from Jud? Killer. Like dreamy.

My faaaaaaaaaaaaaavorite part - the $10 scalp massage...

And her blowouts? They last me around 3 days so I feel like I’m getting more bang for my beauty buck.

My fave ‘do that we do is the Mai Tai – messy beach hair – which is perfect when I have an event, party or show to attend. The waves last and make me feel darned downright sexy. Something I can never accomplish at home when it comes to my coif.

And right now, they’re extending a¬†verrrry¬†special¬†“Friends with Benefits”¬†deal to my BeautyFrosting readers and social media followers! Now, get your heads out of the gutter, it’s not¬†that¬†kind of “friends with benefits.” After all, we all know that¬†nevvvvver¬†works. Nope, when you call to make your appointment, just mention the code¬†#FWBDawn¬†to¬†receive $5 off your blowout all day Monday-Thursday. To make an appointment, just visit¬†¬†or call (310) 442-6084.

A special for BeautyFrosting readers - Mention that you're a BF reader or Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Pinterest follower and get $5 off your blowout at this location all day Monday-Thursday.


It’s the one Friends with Benefits relationship that actually works because at the very least, you’ll get a beautiful blowout and at the best, you’ll be inundated with compliments and stares from strangers. I do believe that my crush has evolved into a full-on monogamous relationship.
