I like to share information that I learn of on the internet. I believe that my sources are reliable and accurate. But ever so often I come across something so shocking or gross, that I choose not to share it for fear of only God knows how many things. I found this article to be both shocking and gross. But because this is something that we as women so often use and the results could be so bad, I felt it was my responsibility to share it anyway. In spite of the fact that now I want to change my whole position on ever going to another salon. Read this article and let me know what you think of it. http://www.qualityhealth.com/psp/9-diseases-you-can-get-at-the-salon/featuredArticle.jspa?rf=29576&mc=MTQ0MjA4NzA.

Umm I am totally in shock over the full article. I go to salons to get my nails done from time to time, even my hair (at least twice a year). I haven't had any issues so far but still, one can never be too careful. Thanks for sharing that article, got me rethinking.

I know what you mean, it really made me rethink some things. We do not know how well they sterilize their equipment after using it on a previous client. In fact, I do not recall seeing the places that I have gone to, do much cleaning. But then again, they would refuse to do their hair at all if there was a visible problem.

I have been to the same salon for manicures and pedicures and haven't had any problems with them so far. Let's hope it stays that way.

oh gosh that is horrible, I rarely go to the salon anyway, don't do my nails, and my son shaves his own head bald

That is good. It seems that the more we do ourselves, the less danger we find ourselves in.

Ewww, I am so glad that I don't go to salons. I knew that you could get some of that stuff, but then some of that stuff surprised me.

I was surprised by a lot of it. This is something that I will need to pray about, I need to go and get my hair done soon.
