ThermaFuse Color Care Review & Giveaway! ~ CLOSED

As you probably know by my review of the Arrojo S125 by Izunami, I am a flat iron junky! It's my go to beauty tool.....used almost daily. Using a product that is designed especially for repeat heat styled hair is a MUST!

I've been using the ThermaFuse Color Care Shampoo & Condition for a little over a month now. It's dreamy! ;)

It smells AMAZING...not too strong which I LOVE.

It's not heavy which is perfect for my thick hair that already tends to be prone to build up. {I normally have to wash daily or my head becomes one big ball of grease.....but because this combo is "lite" I am able to skip a day and NO grease!}

It keeps my color {I am my own colorist....is that even a word?} looking healthy and shiny and seems to be extending it. 

And it also has one of my FAVORITE qualities in a product.....A LITTLE BIT GOES A LONG WAY! This is a HUGE deal to us bargain shoppers!


ThermaFuse Color Care Shampoo & Conditioner is Sulfate FREE. What does that mean?? Does your shampoo froth up? Then it's most likely got sulfate in it. Sulfate is used to "clean" the hair in LOTS of products BUT this "detergent" strips the hair {the color and moisture} leading to breakage and fading....NOT GOOD!


Here's a some info straight from ThermaFuse about their ColorCare Shampoo & Conditioner:

PURPOSE:
A brightening duo that keeps hair color from fading due to environmental conditions as well as time. Each infuses a powerful dose of color defense to keep color brilliant, longer.

FUNCTION:
ColorCare Shampoo’s rich, nurturing sulfate-free formula guards against color loss
by including fade-fighting ingredients to hold color in hair. It protects hair color with
a marine source extract that deflects the effects of sunlight, and increases overall brilliance and gloss with gentle surfactants. It retains artificial hair color for up to 15 shampooings.


ColorCare Condition uses exclusive color-retaining ingredients to penetrate deeply
and lock in hair color for vibrant, fabulous, tangle-free hair. Also protects hair by
absorbing harmfull UV light.



  
SECRET TIP:
ColorCare Sulfate-Free Shampoo is ideal for quicker fading red and brunette hair colors.
ColorCare Condition is great for soaking nail cuticles prior to a manicure.
{how cool is that!}

TO USE:
ColorCare Sulfate-Free Shampoo—Lather into wet hair and rinse thoroughly.
Use daily to keep color-treated hair bright.

ColorCare Condition—Work into freshly shampooed hair, ends to roots.
Leave on for 90 seconds. Rinse.

KEY INGREDIENTS:
Polyamide 2 — Protects hair from UVB and UVA radiation, helping to prevent
artificial and natural hair color from fading; repairs and maintains follicle strength.

Cinnamidopropyltrimonium Choride — A high activity quaternized UV absorber that also significantly improves combing properties, strength and mechanical behavior.

Laminaria Ochroleaca (seaweed) Extract — A naturally derived marine extract to
protect against photo inflammation and the damaging effects of daylight while
helping balance hydration.

Divinyldimethicone/Dimethicone Copolymer — Locks color into hair with a high
viscosity silicone polymer designed to prolong hair color retention.
 
ThermaFuse products are formulated to protect and repair heat-styled hair by utilizing HeatSmart Complex. This registered technology combines a silicone molecule with a wheat protein molecule that penetrates to smooth frazzled cuticle while adding shine. HeatSmart Complex works 3 times better at an elevated temperature (think blow dryer) than at room temperature, and contains Ceramide-2 and Ceramide-6 to help replace hair’s natural glue that’s often destroyed by heat.
 
I think this is a GREAT product! It can be purchased in fine salons or online. I think it actually priced pretty low compared to other "salon" shampoos & conditioners. And like I mentioned before a little bit goes a long way....which makes it an even better product in my book!

Arrojo S125 by Izunami Review


Have you entered to win an iWavecube??
It's a compact portable microwave!!!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
If I was ever stranded on a deserted island and had to pick only a few things to bring, my flat iron would be one. {assuming there was a place to plug it in} When my hair is done {and not in my normal mommy due ~ ponytail and baseball cap} I feel like I can conquer the world. I feel SEXY! Not sure why I would want to feel sexy stranded alone on a island but just in case I’m bringing my flat iron! ;)


For YEARS I have been a flat iron user. I’ve had anything from Conair to CHI. I’ve got SUPER thick hair and seem to find that NONE maintain the heat and give me the style I want. When I got the Arrojo S125 by Izunami a month ago I was sooooooooo excited to heat that bad boy up and put it to the test. I was NOT disappointed. In fact, the first time I used it my husband kept telling me how great my hair looked. SERIOUS! See….I told you a flat iron could make you feel SEXY!


Izunami is a superior hair styling tool company. Nick Arrojo is a world renowned celebrity hairstylist. Put them together and you get the Arrojo S125.







This ceramic flat iron is AMAZING! It really blows all other flat irons OUT OF THE WATER!

Some of the features I LOVE:
  • This thing gets HOT! Like 200-450 degrees HOT! 
  • It takes SECONDS to heat up! 
  • It has Cool Tips so I don’t’ have to worry about my digits getting burnt! 
  • The Tourmaline Ionic Ceramic Plates give you effortless gliding without pulling or pinching your hair! 
  • It’s got ITS {Independent Temperature Control} so the plates heat independently the ENTIRE time you are using it!
  •  There’s a 9 foot SWIVEL cord! 
  • The Root Edge design allows you to get close to the root and not get a crease in your hair!


SEE I told you this thing was AMAZING!!

Here are two videos about the Arrojo S125 by Izunami. The first I tell you about all of the features I already listed. The second I show how EASY it is to use!






You can see that I’ve styled one side of my hair with the Arrojo S125 and the other side has not been styled.

I give the Arrojo S125 by Izunami 5 heels!

Houston we have a problem.... {we also have WINNERS!}

Okay....it has been brought to my attention that some CREEP has gone thru comments {most likely from giveaways} on my blog and is sending emails to some of you. CREEPY emails like "I'd like to be your friend and I'll send you pics of me if you send me pics of you" WHO DOES THAT!?

Well, apparently Joy does. That's the name of the person they are coming from. I have NO idea who Joy is. She {or he} is NOT affiliated with Steals, Deals and Heels. PLEASE accept my apology and just disregard these messages! :( I've passed "Joy's" info on to Blogger!

Just so you know I don't ask for you email addresses for my giveaways. When winners are posted the winners get in contact with me. I will never need your email address so in the future don't post them unless you want Joy to contact you ;)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


On a better note.....I announced winners and ONLY 1 person responded! This is the LAST chance and I'm picking new ones....AGAIN! You've got 24 hours to send me an email!

Attention Brides!!!



Have you heard of Recycled Bride??

Recycled Bride is a free marketplace for eco-savvy brides and their friends. Members recycle everything from designer wedding gowns to table decorations, bridesmaids dresses, shoes, and even wedding gifts. If you have ever been part of a wedding, or plan to be, buying and selling on Recycled Bride helps minimize your carbon footprint and maximize your budget.

Um...where were you Recycled Bride when I got married!!?

It was my dream to have this Monique Lhuillier Coco gown


The price tag was WAY more than I would ever spend on a dress. Instead, I bought a plain dress from a local bridal shop that was closing.....the dress was $100 and then purchased a lace top from White House Black Market that was similar to the French Alencon lace top that came with the Coco gown. I then had a sash made. There are brides selling their USED Coco gowns for $2000+ my FAUX Coco gown cost me $250 with alterations!

{my wedding pics are on a disc somewhere...this was on the computer so i used it....its one og my favs!}

iWavecube Review and GIVEAWAY!!! ~ CLOSED


I don't have a microwave. Correction...I don't have a WORKING microwave. We got a fancy shmancy one as a wedding gift almost 5 years ago but about a year ago it decided to retire :( And between you and me I was okay with it. You see, my itty bitty kitchen needs all the empty counter space it can get so I was fine boiling water to warm bottles or heating left overs up in the oven.

But then I came across the iWavecube. It's just what my itty bitty kitchen needed....an itty bitty microwave!

{Measures 10.5"W x 10"D x 12"H}


Isn't it CUTE! Yes I just described a kitchen appliance as cute! ;)

I will admit it doesn't hold as much as a "normal" microwave does but if it still does the job, takes up half the amount of counter space and all I have to do is maybe split what I am heating up in half then it's perfect for my family!!

  • Know what the iWavecube is REALLY great for??
  • tailgating
  • boating
  • camping
  • an RV
  • a dorm room
  • your bedroom {pop popcorn in bed while watching a movie!}
  • in a hotel
  • at your office
  • at a salon or spa {perfect for heating waxes or hand towels}
 It comes in Black, White or Silver so it wouldn't be an eye sore in your kitchen!



The control panel is digital and there are preset times or you can increase 10 seconds, 30 seconds or a minute. It's rather quite while in use, weighs 12 pounds and uses 600 watts.


As you can see it doesn't hold as much as a standard size microwave but you can get a soup bowl in with room to spare.

Overall I think this is a GREAT product. It's compact and energy efficient!

I give the iWavecube 5 heels!

iCubed wants ONE of my awesome followers to have their very own iWavecube!!

White Sands ER Fusion Review and WINNERS!!!



I'm so cheap that I color {and highlight} my own hair. There....I said it! I've done this for YEARS and ALWAYS get TONS of compliments on my hair. Now, don't get me wrong, nothing compares to getting this done at a salon but I just can't justify spending 2+ hours (my hair is THICK and takes forever) and $100+ for something I can do a pretty good job doing myself.

With this being said, my hair sometimes doesn't feel healthy. I'm pretty sure it's NOT supposed to break off half way down the strand when flat ironing.....that was the first and last time I try out re-highlight 4 days later! I'm always looking for a good treatment to restore my locks!

I recently received White Sands ER Fusion and it is AWESOME!!!




Here is their description of the product:
ER Fusion is an intensive reconstructive hair treatment which restores hair back to its youthful condition. The product creates a clear micro shield to seal in color and softness, while weightless quaternaries balance and self-adjust color in the hair. A complex set of amino cystines repair damage while lemon grass extracts enhance color with a high gloss. ER Fusion’s unique delivery system ensures optimum performance and lasts 30 days after each initial use.





Some of the things I LOVE about ER Fusion:
  • It doesn't weigh my hair down...it's thick enough already!
  • It's the perfect treatment for someone cheap frugal like me who color and highlights their own hair
  • It left my hair soft and shiny!
  • There was NO build up on my scalp which is common with treatments like this
  • It's a great way to get ride of pesky fly-aways and frizz!

White Sands carries a TON of other products....




{I think I really need these!!}





White Sands has treatments and tools for EVERY hair type!
