Lionesse

Last weekend while shopping I walked out of a SUPER crowded Victorias Secret empty handed. As I walked out, there was one of those booths that sells hair straighteners and the girl offered me a free sample of their hair serum. Of course this is their way to lure you in closer and ask if they can demonstrate the straightener. I usually say "no thanks" while not even making eye contact. But for some reason on this particular day I smiled, took the sample and sat in the chair while she demonstrated away. I had just washed my hair a few hours earlier, so my hair was a little damp and the perfect amount of frizzy for me to really know if it was working. I was sold when she curled a section of hair, wet it with a spray bottle, moved on to a different section, talked a little and by the time the wet section dried ....it had dried EXACTLY the way she curled it! It didn't even get frizzy again after she wet it. 
So this is what I bought


My hair is really curly, I hate it! shocker!...People with curly want straight, and people with straight want curly. Why is that? I didn't even want to post a picture of how curly my hair can get but I did want you to see why I was so impressed with this straightener.
I washed my hair the night before and used a pea size amount of the serum before putting it in a braid. In the morning I just took the braid out and went from curly to straight in 16 minutes! It was a little pricey but seriously worth every penny.
What brand of straightener do you use? And does it work this great?

  6. My friend and I got sucked in together, we paid $100 each (+ tax, so it was like $108) and the rep threw in full-size argan oil shampoo and conditioners for each of us.

  7. same here sept the guy threw in another straightener for free and 2 argon shampoos and 2 conditioners also for free my mother and i really couldn't say no especially after the demonstration!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I got sucked in today and got the flat iron, full size argon oil, shampoo, conditioner, and a neat little comb for 120 and I thought I paid too much until I got home and my hair was still pin straight.

  9. Don't buy these products! They gave me a "great deal" at this kiosk at my local mall and when I decided to go return them they didn't give me a refund. Even though the guy working there said that all we had to do was bring the box and the receipt for returns. They lie and even though this product is good for hair, the company is disgraceful

    btw nice blog!(:

  11. I was had. I purchased the Evo hot iron, because the sales girl made really nice girls, and told me she was giving me her last family discount. I took it home and tried to make the same curls and failed. I took it back and they would not give me a refund, they tried to give me other products that I didn't want. They wanted me to come back for a lession. I wouldn't buy anything else from a Kiosk ever again. This one was in the Cherry Creek Mall. This is america who doesn't take something back????

  14. I think I paid toooooo much just for the straightener (a month ago)... but it is AWESOME! So I guess the over prize worth it (I paid $150)...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I paid $150 plus taxes and for a couple of weeks I tht it was a rip off and I even wanted to return it when I saw they were on sale for $69 (Black Friday)... I didn't because I don't like to go shopping on those days but since then, every time I use it, I think it was the best investment for my hair!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I got 2 straighteners, 2 sets of shampoo and conditioner, 2 straightener holders, 2 lifetime warranties, and I can have my hair done for free up to 16 times for $173 after tax

  22. I dont use or have the need for straighteners, but I've never seen such great results as these! Unbelievable!

    ReplyDelete
  23. My hair is curly like yours. I wish I had a straightener like this one. But I think its too expensive...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have this flat iron and I LOVE IT! Great product! AWESOME company!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great blog thanks for letting me know this really works. I am one of those people who have kinda curly, and love it but some times I want it compleatly straight and need a good straightened!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't use a straightener but my daughter does; she has a Philips.

  27. i have never heard of this site b4, so i am new. i have never been a fan of buying things at kiosk b/c never know if it is the same thing as the buy on tv sites. i am impressed with this item you got, it works great. although i have wavy hair and not curly as you do. but my hair is longer than yours.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can relate to the beginning of your story. There are many booths at the mall who basically beg you to stop by. I have try some hand lotion and the result is amazing and I end up buying some one time. I have not come across this brand yet but I hope to do soon.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, Really Great Results and it Really Gives You a Completely Different Look! I Think your Hair is Beautiful Either Way but it's Funny How Just Changing Your Hair From Curly to Straight Can Make Such a Difference in Your Look! You are Beautiful & Could Probablly Wear Your Hair Just About Anyway; I have to Wear My Hair Long b/c I am More Curvy & My Face is Fuller so Short Hair for me is a No No! I Honestly didn't Even Know that Lionesse Made Hair Tools or Products, that Just Makes me Love Them Even More & I Could Definitely Use a New Look & Some New Make Up! Thanks & Have a Blessed Day!

  32. I don't use a straightener cause I like my hair wavy. But, my sister has REALLY curly hair and can't find a product she likes so I'd recommend this to her.

  34. Bailey Dexter, OMG what a huge difference! I have a one but am going to run out and see if I can find this, Love the hair both curls or not.

  35. Your hair is beautiful, curly or straight.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow I have got to try this!!! My hair type is very similar and I hate having curly, frizzy hair. I usually flat iron it every chance I get, but it never turns out as straight as I want it. I currently have a Hot Tools flat iron, but I will totally have to look into replacing it.

    ReplyDelete
  37. this looks fantastic, my hair looks almost exactly like yours in their natural state, I'd love to try it out!

    ReplyDelete

    I have a straightener, but I think this serum would really help to keep my hair straight for a longer period of time.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Okay, that has to be the most powerful straightener I've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Looks like something I could really use my hair is super long and curly every one else loves it but I get really tired of it and with the humid air I find it unruly and try to keep it wet down.I have tried dozens of products and nothing helps.

  56. I had no idea that Lionesse does haircare as well as skin care. It did a great job of straightening your hair, I need to try this serum. Thank you for sharing this review.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Omg love it! My friend has been looking for this. Thanks for the tips!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've been looking to buy a new straightener..I'll have to try this one now! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like your hair wavy. The product sounds good if you want to change the look of your hair. I have wavy hair and have never tried to straighten it. I am the opposite. I wish my hair had more curl, like yours.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I have the wavy and keep mine that way . .I like straight but all seem to be straight anymore.. Getting the waves are harder with the length so i am looking into how to keep curls ..thank you for sharing ..I like yours wavy too

    ReplyDelete
  61. First off, your hair is great! It look nice straightened too. You are just fortunate to have such nice hair. I straighten mine rarely. But, perhaps Lionesse straightener would make it shinier.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Love the results! I have curly hair as well so this is amazing how straight you got it.
