..::Product + Giveaway::.. FRAMESI COLOR LOVER™ PRIMER 11


What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"Our FRAMESI COLOR LOVER line is formulated with a compound rich in quinoa, the ultimate source of all-natural plant proteins, to help you truly love your color>95% longer.*

Stuck deciding between specialty products, when your hair really needs it all? Interested in simply giving your hair some extra love? FRAMESI COLOR LOVER PRIMER 11 is your hair’s hero, the love of your life, protecting and caring for your hair, while preserving your unique color.

Our ultimate leave-in color-boost conditioning spray contains an advanced blend of quinoa proteins, cationic conditioning agents, Italian grape stem cells, and a powerful vitamin blend to provide your hair with moisture, shine, strength and volume it needs to keep up with your busy lifestyle."


I was sent an 8.5 fl oz bottle of the PRIMER 11 from FRAMESI to review.  

The MSRP for PRIMER 11 is $21.90. This is sold in professional salons and on their website.

Packaging & Presentation of FRAMESI COLOR LOVER™ PRIMER 11

This bottle of PRIMER 11 was sent to me in perfect condition.  There were no defects nor leaks during shipment, and everything was intact.  If there is a 'right' way to package something, FRAMESI got it right!  The actual bottle of the PRIMER 11 was wrapped decoratively in a plastic bag and all of the supporting documentation was clipped together.

The front of the bottle labels the brand, product, and the 11 ways that it enhances your hair:

+ Retains Color
+ Damage Repair
+ Silky & Shiny
+ Fix Frizz
+ Body
+ Mends Ends
+ Detangles
+ Style Support
+ No Static
+ Thermal Guard
+ Weightless

The back of the bottle provides the product details, features, and directions in English, Spanish, and French! The list of ingredients can be found towards the bottom.  The distribution information, QR code, and contact information can be found here, too.  FRAMESI products do not test on animals (yay!).  PRIMER 11 is sold in recyclable packaging, has a 12-month PAO, and advises that you follow proper disposal protocol (whether you decide to recycle or not).

The product lot number is printed on the bottom of the bottle.

This is also applied by using a spray nozzle (my favorite way for hair products).  I have not had problems with it clogging.  There is a clear cap to keep it clean and dust-free between uses.

My Personal Experience with FRAMESI COLOR LOVER™ PRIMER 11

I love hair products.  Especially ones that work, right!?  Anyway, about a year ago I started getting my hair cut, colored, and styled at Aveda.  If you are familiar with that salon, you know that it's not super cheap.  It is important to treat yourself every once in a while, though.  Plus, I don't go every 6-8 weeks like they recommend.  That's why I need something like PRIMER 11 to keep my color lasting longer in between appointments.  And keep it longer it does.  Check out the card that was accompanied with my bottle:

The left swatch is directly after color.  The middle one and the right one are both after 30 washes, 30 blow dry, and 30 flat iron sessions. Can you tell which one is better?  The middle, of course!  The middle is with PRIMER 11, and the right is with the competition.

Now, I'm not unfamiliar with products like this-- I've used different lines, most recently being the Nexxus one.  That worked nicely, but there were four different products that you need to buy to get relatively close to the results you see with PRIMER 11 (one product!).

Plus, PRIMER 11 offers the following benefits (you can't go wrong):

+ Made with quinoa.  Yep, good 'ol fashioned grain that is high in protein and contains all (8) amino acids.
+ Contains both thermal and UV protectants.
+ Doesn't build-up.
+ Contains antioxidants with their powerful vitamin blend.
+ Keeps the moisture locked into your hair.
+ Color guard.
+ Contains natural oils and vitamins
+ Repairs and infuses your hair.

Oh, and did I mention how good it smells?  As a person that uses a spray-in after every shower, I can attest to the fact that this is one of the top 3 best smelling that I have used (if not the best).

  • Very easy to use-- spray (damp or dry!), comb it, and leave it!
  • Works with any hair type.
  • Smells so good-- fresh and clean fragrance.
  • 100% vegan.
  • Gluten-free, sulfate-free, DEA-free, Paraben-free, Sodium Chloride-free
  • I haven't found any cons of this.

        You can typically be thrifty with a lot of things, but hair care really is one of those things that 'you get what you pay for'.  With something as physically dominant as your hair, you want it to look good! Not just for your physical appearance, but for your inner confidence and the love of your being.  This is a very well made leave in conditioner that has a lot of science behind it and really does as it says.  It leaves my hair softer, less frizzy (great during these humid months), and overall healthy looking.  It smells phenomenal, and it's very easy to apply.  Hey, in the long run, this can actually save you money because it prolongs the color 95% longer!  I definitely recommend checking this out.
