Straightening Hair Brush Review

When I first saw the Straightening Hair Brush I was sceptical. I knew that they were selling fast, but I didn’t see how they could work so well. So I started researching, after we felt confident we ordered some for the store. But when I got one home and let Eva play with it, my mind was blown. Before I talk about how this thing works, and why it works, let’s see the picture!

Before & After

Straightening Hair Brush | Before and After Results!

The results were stunning. This literally took 5 minutes to do. I’m told this would have taken an hour to do with a flat iron, I don’t know if that is exaggerated but I know that 30 minutes isn’t out of the question. This woman is Eva’s mother, and normally she can hardly brush her hair because of the tangles and how curly it is. The Straightening Hair Brush cut through her hair like butter, and totally straightened it in 1-2 passes tops! The best thing in my opinion about this straightening hair brush is that is isn’t like a flat iron which seems to give hair that plastered look.  This simply straightened while maintaining some body and adding tons of shine!

How it works

If you’ve ever used a flat iron then you know about the smell. That burning hair smell. What that smell actually is… is your hair burning! It literally cooks your hair! That’s the biggest difference, the straightening hair brush doesn’t burn your hair, because there is airflow and you aren’t clamping it like a George Foreman grill. Too many curls? Let me get my grill! - George Foreman on flat irons.Even though the brush heats as high or even higher than many flat irons, the fact that the bristles goes between the hair and radiate the heat rather than directly infuse the heat. The brush also produces negative ions, these link up with the positive ions in your hair which locks in moisture resulting in healthier and much shinier hair. The brush also controls frizz all day long, because of the extra moisture and the fact that your hair is allowed to breathe. Another great fact is that because this straightener is literally a brush, you don’t need to brush your hair. This saves time, and gives a variety of styling options. To recap, flat irons fry moisture out of the hair and the straightening brush bakes moisture into your hair to give shine, control, and new life to your hair.

Veggetti Review | Cucumber Pasta Salad

People eat a lot of pasta. We love pasta here at AsSeenOnTVHot10. North Americans eat almost 16 pounds of it per year. Since Thomas Jefferson fell in love with macaroni when visiting Naples and brought the first pasta maker to the United States the noodle industry has exploded. The reason for this is that pasta is really, really good. It’s extremely cheap (like its cousin bread), very filling, and was a great source of food for a fast developing nation. As Good as pasta is, for many of us it isn’t a smart choice. There are two problems with pasta:

  1. Pasta is extremely calorie dense
  2. Pasta contains gluten.

Between 6-8% of people have been found to have celiac disease, and another 6-8% have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. These issues can cause stomach pain, acid reflux, ulcers, poor skin, acne, joint pain, and more issues than I’m going to list in this post. The point is almost 2 out of 10 people can’t or shouldn’t eat pasta. Plus, macaroni has 212 calories for a 2oz serving. I don’t know about you, but I could eat a lot more than 2oz of macaroni. What if we could make noodles out of something other than flower? Something healthy, light, and something that still tastes good. What about squash? 2oz of squash has 9 calories! You’d have to eat 3 pounds of squash pasta to have the same amount of calories as 1/8th of a pound of macaroni. That’s 24 times the amount of food! With all of those calories you save, you don’t have to feel bad about any of the sauces and sides you pair with these “New Noodles”. Let’s take a look at the Veggetti: A hand-held vegetable noodle maker with two options for pasta types, and a secret bonus noodle that we’ll tell you about. Keep reading after the review to see our video review and recipe, which you can also print off at the bottom of this article.

Vaggetti turn your veggies into healthy spaghetti! As Seen On TV Hot 10

The Veggetti is a pretty awesome tool. It takes many of your favorite vegetables, and slices them into noodles that would otherwise be impossible to do by hand. There are two slicing options, thin and thick. One is a bit thicker and wider, like a fettuccine noodle, and the other is similar to spaghetti. One thing we discovered when we were doing our testing was that on the harder vegetables, like squash, you can actually get a third type of noodle. The corkscrew noodle. The piece that goes through the middle makes a really cool corkscrew shape that would be great to cook like you would the regular noodles, to use as a garnish, or to feed babies.

The cap of the Veggetti has teeth that stab into the vegetable to use as a handle on shorter or firmer vegetables. We found that firm vegetables work really well to stir-fry, and the softer vegetables are extremely good raw. You can pick up a Veggetti at AsSeenOnTVHot10.com for $14.95, and as usually we have a “No Worries” money back guarantee. If you don’t like the product, or there is anything at all wrong with the product just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund. Check out the Veggetti in action by watching the video below where we make pasta salad with an english cucumber. After you get done feel free to print out the recipe and try it out!

Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner Review and Apps

Read your car like a book.

You’re driving down the street, and your check engine light comes on. Instantly your mind starts to race. “Did I change the oil, maybe that’s the problem? Is it the transmission? Oh man that’ll be expensive…” So you drive down to the dealership, have them look at your car, and pay them $80 to make the light go off, if you’re lucky! But what happened when they took the car? Well they probably hooked it up to an OBD-II scanner, saw the code was tripped because of a $5 sensor going bad, replace it in under a minute, and then wait around for a few minutes so that it seems like more work had to be done and charge you for an hours work. There’s probably a better way to go about fixing this problem. The Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner.

OBD2 Codes

OBD2 Codes, or OBD-II codes are codes that your vehicle sends out if there is an error. OBD2 scanners can read these codes through the OBD2 port in your car. Usually, these scanners are pretty expensive – in the multiple hundred dollar range. Recently here at As Seen On TV Hot 10 we found a better way to do this, the Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner. It can connect to your phone and read and even reset error codes, and provide diagnostic information on your car.

To put the code reader in your car you need to find your OBD2 port which you can do at this website. OBD2 ports are on almost all vehicles made after 1996, and several before that year.

OBD2 Codes are 5 digits long, and the breakdown is usually as follows:

  1. The first letter is the system the error code is affecting.
    P = Powertrain | B = Body | C = Chassis | U = Undefined
  2. The second number is the code type.
    0 = Generic
    1 = Manufacturer Specific
  3. The third number is the sub system that is being affected.
    1 = Emission Management (Fuel or Air)
    2 = Injector Circuit (Fuel or Air)
    3 = Ignition or Misfire
    4 = Emission Control
    5 = Vehicle Speed & Idle Control
    6 = Computer & Output Circuit
    7 = Transmission
    8 = Transmission
    9 = SAE Reserved
    0 = SAE Reserved
  4. The fourth and fifth codes define the specific problem and usually have to be looked up online. You can look up any codes from your car at this site. Our code reader know how to interpret many types of codes, but some manufacturer specific codes need to be looked up.Read more at: http://www.obd-codes.com/faq/obd2-codes-explained.php

ELM327: The Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner

The ELM327 Bluetooth OBD2 code reader is truly awesome. The price of all technology decreases over time, but the jump from $200+ for a bulky handheld OBD2 scanner that connects to your car with a thick cable to a small Bluetooth model that connects to your phone for just over $10 is just crazy.

I was reading reviews of this product while I was sourcing it for our store, and I noticed a lot of reviews were 5 stars, and a few of them said that the product didn’t work. I found that the reason for this is that several different factories make these items and some wholesale for just $1. This means that some factories cut corners and ship lower quality items, while others focus on build quality. At As Seen On TV Hot 10, we don’t like items that break or don’t work. We have one of the best refund policies compared to our competition, if even %5 of our items were defective we’d lose money. So we ordered from a high quality factory and tested them all out and can proudly say these are some of the best code readers on the market. Get yours for $10.95 at AsSeenOnTVHot10.com!

To start using this bluetooth code reader after you plug it in, you’ll need to connect the device to your phone like you would a headset or any other bluetooth device. The instructions come with the product as well. Then, you’ll need to pick an app to interface with the code reader. I’ll go over a few of the options below, starting with my favorite: Torque, the app the comes with the scanner.

Torque Pro App Review

Torque Pro running on an Android Phone for use with OBD2 Bluetooth Code ReaderTorque Pro is what ships with the ELM327 Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner. It’s normally $4.95, but it’s free with your purchase from us. Torque Pro is a diagnostics tool and vehicle tracking suite. You can look over the full feature list on the Google Play Store Listing or the Torque Pro Wiki. There is a pretty cool video that shows a bit of it’s features in action.

Here is a list of my favorite features:

  • Tracking your car on the map and being able to see the speed, fuel economy, or virtually any other metric at any point on the map.
  • Reading Error Codes (it has 3k definitions built in, so you’ll know right what you’re looking at)
  • Clearing Error Codes!!! I can think of several times that my car sent the wrong signal and turned the engine light on. If I didn’t know how to reset the codes I would have had to pay to get the car checked only to have it be as simple as pressing a button to get rid of the error.
  • Dashboards. You can make a dashboard with all of the information you want to track on one screen. MPH, Fuel Range, RPM, Engine Temperature, and a whole lot more!
  • Plugins. There is an entire page of plugins that you can use with Torque made by other developers. This is great because the more community an app has the more likely it is to continue being supported, updated, and improved.

DashCommand OBD App Review

DashCommand works a lot like Torque Pro, but you’ll have to buy this one separately if you find after their free trial that you like it better. I really like the design of DashCommand, it’s very clean and easy to read while still being reminiscent of all of the classic car gauges and meters. I recommend you go check out DashCommand after you get comfortable with Torque Pro, although there aren’t very many extra features the user interface is much more polished. This is really just a matter of choice.

OBD Car Doctor Review

OBD Car Doctor was the only app on my list I couldn’t get to work. Which is fine because I didn’t find the design that appealing, and the feature list wasn’t as robust as the other two apps. In my opinion, you can steer clear of this one.

This is only a list of a few of the apps that you can get for our Bluetooth Code Reader, there are several more in the appstores for Android and iPhone.

Magic Pens 3D Hand Illusion

I recently saw a cool optical illusion where you draw a hand on a piece of paper and then make a very simple 3D effect by adding stripes. As soon as I saw it I immediately thought of using magic pens. Here is an example:

3D Hand effect from HandiManiaMagic pens make the whole process quicker, easier, and cleaner for those of us who don’t have as much artistic experience. Like our last magic pens post, I had my 6-year-old do the drawing for me to show how easier it is! Let’s take a look at the process step by step.

Magic Pens 3D Hand Optical Illusion
Step 1

Draw the outline of your hand. I did this part for my 6 year old, because he thought my hand would “fill the page better”, and when you’re trying to get 6-year-olds to work for you playing by their rules is a must.

Magic Pens 3D Hand Optical Illusion
Step 2

Now you want to make some stripes, and curve the stripes upwards on the inside of the hand. I said to make a rainbow shape inside the hand and let him look at a few examples.

Magic Pens 3D Hand Optical Illusion
Step 3

After you make your stripes all the way up the hand, take the magic color change pen and draw thin lines following the shape of your stipes

Step 4

You can take things a little farther if you want to, by adding more color stripes or just doodling around. We used the airbrush that comes with the magic pens at the bottom. I then had to sign MY name, because it was, “a picture of me.” I told him that the artist was supposed to sign his own name but he didn’t think that made any sense because he knew he drew it. I gave in and signed my name to make him happy. Here was the finished (because he wanted to play other games) piece of work:

Bluetooth Shower Speaker Review + Video

Today I have to share a product that we just got in here at AsSeenOnTvHOT10 because I am absolutely in love with. The Bluetooth Shower Speaker. Singing in the shower isn’t anything new, but isn’t it time to upgrade the experience?

Before the Bluetooth Shower Speaker

Man Singing in the ShowerBefore we got the Bluetooth Shower Speaker my shower music “technology stack” was playing music on my phone and putting it in the sink to make the phone’s speakers sound louder. It worked well enough, but it wasn’t exactly a perfect solution.

Problems solved by the Bluetooth Shower Speaker

I had a few problems, for one if a song comes on you don’t like then your only options are to either sit through it or dry off, get out of the shower, and change the song. Which adds unnecessary freezing time when the cold bathroom air shocks you compared to the warm shower you didn’t want to get out of in the first place.

Another relatively funny problem I had was the fact that someone always seems to call me halfway through my shower. Now, talking on the phone in the shower might be a little strange for the person you’re talking to, but if you don’t feel awkward the shower speaker has a microphone and can work like a bluetooth speaker phone. You can also set this speaker on your desk and use it as a music speaker or an advanced speaker phone. The sound quality is great, and it’s also got some interesting noise canceling features because some people said they didn’t even realize I was in the shower.

Bluetooth Shower Speaker Video

We made a video to show what some fairly typical usage looks like in my household.
