It is mid summer and our frizzy hair, chipped nails and tired feet need some tender loving care. In Brampton, there are a lot of choices for everything under the sun when it comes to personal care and beauty services. Many of us revert to frequenting places close to home that have the best prices. We try out a few places, ask friends and eventually find a few hidden gems that provide a great service, even if it is a bit pricier.
But what about places that provide really bad service or are outright dangerous to our health? The Region of Peel maintains the health inspection status of all licensed personal care businesses. However, after examining the region’s database, only one facility in all of Brampton and Mississauga has a somewhat negative rating. This is hard to believe. A reader recently commented to me how her fingers and toes caught a fungus, likely because the nail salon she used didn’t properly sterilizing their equipment. Nearly five years later and a lot of medical treatment her nails are starting to grow back normally.
