My Secret to Strong Nails
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had weak nails. In fact I don’t even think I have been fully satisfied with them.
They would grow to a certain length, before going flaky and breaking off, and the vicious circle would start again.
It’s not until now that it occurred to me I need to find a way to stop this.
Diet can play a big factor in the quality of nails, however I know personally that I am not excluding anything in my diet that would affect my nails, but I did find out, it was because my nails are dry.
Below is a list of at home products that have worked for me when it came to my weak nail problem!
This is a very popular product that has been known to strengthen not only nails but help eyelashes grow too (bonus!)
I have been putting petroleum jelly on my cuticles every night for about 4 weeks now and I have noticed a vast difference. My nails are a lot whiter in colour and definitely stronger!
This is definitely worth up-keeping as the results are sure to get even better with more time.
This is an obvious one really.
Cuticle oil acts as a moisturiser for the nails. I haven’t been using cuticle oil specifically but I have been using Hemp hand oil throughout the day. I also think this has been a big contributor to the quality of my nails – like the petroleum jelly, they are feeling stronger overall. A friend also recently recommend I try almond oil, as this is also – apparently – good at keeping nails strong – this is something I am willing to try after I use up my hemp oil!
These products I feel have contributed well into keeping my nails flake free and strong – so much so that I’ve actually grown them to a nice length!
Dry nails can be caused by a lot of everyday factors, which is why it’s important to keep nails moisturised and hydrated like you would with your skin!
