Strengthening your nails at home can be an effective way to combat brittleness. Experts recommend the following methods that can help both with already broken nails and to maintain them in perfect condition:

  • Wear gloves: It is preferable to wear protective gloves during household work to reduce contact with water and chemicals.
  • Avoid long nails: Regularly trimming weak nails helps prevent mechanical damage.
  • Use the right tools: Trimming nails is recommended when it’s wet, and filing when it’s dry.
  • Choose soft files: Files with less grit (abrasiveness) are suitable for processing natural nails, especially if they are brittle.
  • Regular oil care: Jojoba based oils can provide nourishment to the nails. They are recommended to be used weekly followed by polishing.
  • Keratin Masks: Weekly keratin masks, enhanced by the use of cotton gloves, help strengthen nails.
  • Baths: Treatments in warm water with olive oil, sea salt, mineral water with lemon or with the addition of dry herbs can strengthen nails.
  • Use a base coat: When applying regular nail polish, you should use special products to protect against harmful substances.
  • Avoiding shampoos for oily hair: Switching temporarily to milder shampoos can prevent negative effects on your nails.
  • Biotin Supplements: Research shows that biotin may help strengthen nails, but their use should be discussed with your doctor.

Take care of your nails and follow the recommendations to achieve the health and beauty of your nails.
