BY Hydro-Gel Strong By Framesi From Beauty Care Choices Review + Giveaway 12/22 US

I'm not a hair gel person mainly because I get these small pimple bumps on my forehead when I used several hair gels in the past. Recently, Beauty Care Choices sent me their Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Strong sculpting gel and because I've tried Framesi's Color Lover Shampoo and Conditioner before (I love these by the way!), I was quite excited to see how the BY Hydro-Gel strong from Framesi would work for me.

Beauty Care Choices offers a huge variety of products from your favorite salons. They are an online store and these products are conveniently shipped in the comfort of your own home.

Framesi BY Hydro-Gel strong is an alcohol free styling gel with malachite extract and rich in minerals to rebuild damaged hair.  Plus it has UV filters to protect hair.  Volumizes while adding incredible texture and shine.  Especially good on short styles.  Apply to either damp or dry hair. P.S. BY stands for Be Yourself. :)


The Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Strong came in a black tube. The Hydro-Gel Strong has a clear, glittery, slight grayish color (hard to capture in camera!) and has a very nice scent. I have shoulder length hair and a layered cut so putting my hair up in a bun or ponytail is very hard. There are these short stray hairs which come off my bun or ponytail. I also have bangs which, once in a while, I want to get off my face but would come off the hair pins towards the end of the day.

I tried the Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Strong and it was easy to apply. It added shine to my hair maybe because of the glittery color of the hydro-gel. My hair didn't look flat (one of the things I don't like in a gel) when I put it up on a ponytail and the Framesi BY Hydro-gel kept the short stray hairs in place. It also didn't make my hair look hard or sticky. I also liked that this didn't give me the "wet look". I actually don't like my hair to have that "wet look" style which other gels did.

I also noticed that when I applied the Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Strong in my damp hair, my hair would dry up with less frizz and less puffiness. It removes the frizz and puffiness without flatting my hair out.

I like how this kept my hair smelling nice and fresh all day. I also like that it doesn't cause any build-up on my scalp. It's easy to rinse off with water and shampoo. And the good news, I didn't get any small pimple bumps on my forehead! :)

As a person who doesn't actually use gel, I am impressed with the Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Strong. This is actually a nice product and I love how I discovered another product for my hair.

You can purchase the Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Strong on Beauty Care Choices.

  1. I also really like this from their site also; Blush Brush by Bodyography

  2. I like Truly Pure Shampoo & Conditioner by Jane Iredale. I would use this gel.

  3. I like the Strength Cure - The Aromathraphy Collection *Limited Edition* by pureology

  4. I like the Sebastian Whipped Creme Mousse and would like to try the Sebastian Penetraitt Masque. The Hydro Gel by Framesi would help with my hair's texture and tendency to frizz. I use a lot to keep the frizz down including hair serum's and light leave-in conditioners made with oils.

  5. CONNIE = Rose

    I would use it. The Hydrating & Repairing Conditioner - Coco-Coloda by Pure Blends seems like an item I would like to try.

  6. I also love the Multi-Active Toner by Dermalogica
    I would love to win and use this BY Hydro-Gel Strong for myself
    Thank You for the chance
