Framesi BY Mist Spray Strong Giveaway - ends September 23!

The weather in Chicago is less than kind on my hair, which I like to wear straight, but is naturally kinky and curly. The wind, humidity, rain, snow and plethora of conditions makes for terrible hair days for commuters like me!

Framesi BY (Be Yourself) Mist Spray Strong is the tool of my choice for surviving the daily commute. This Spray delivers a strong hold and dries fast. It protects my hair from UV rays and makes my hair shiny using Vitamin E and light silicone. 

I love that I don't look like I'm wearing a helmet after I apply it - it holds invisibly, but still is strong. It keeps the integrity of my style in place through my commute in the Windy City!

You can find Framesi BY for $19.99 on In my opinion, this hairspray is worth every penny!

The gracious folks at have agreed to send one of my readers 10 oz. of Framesi BY to try! Simply enter using the Giveaway Tools below.  US only please and GOOD LUCK!

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
