I haven't decided where I am going yet.
Sometimes, I go to a Black Owned spot in Atlanta. It is far from where I live and work, the people there usually act like I'm doing them or favor, gossip constantly, and charge higher prices. Why are so many Black businesses this way? It makes it hard to support the cause.
Or I usually go to a Vietnamese shop. The lady (Nancy) is nice and very entertaining that does both my feet and brows so meticulously. However, I am concerned because they do not sanitize between clients. They wash the utensils off or not, and keep it moving. Recently, I saw an article about this on the news:
This comes from not cleaning out foot spas with bleach to kill bacteria. This fungus can withstand a cleaning with hot water and soap. Me no likey! not to mention if things aren't cleaned with bleach you can get a toenail fungal infection.
And also has anyone done the foot detox? Thoughts?My co-worker thinks it's a scam. Read about it here.
Has anyone had the Fish Pedicure? Would you let fish do this to your feet?
People swear by it, but I am very apprehensive. I guess it's the germaphobe in me surfacing. What do you think?
Have you ever had an outstanding, economical pedicure or the opposite? I would love to read about it. Also, especially if you are local, recommend your pedicure shop please.
