The official name for brittle nails is onychoschizia. But no matter what you call them, they rank at the top of the list for embarrassment and frustration.
Brittle nails are usually soft and thin. They might grow but then they split and peel. Ruling out serious health problems, brittle nails are usually the result of an inadequate diet and/or overexposure to chemicals, excessive hand washing, housecleaning, and so on.
In other words, life.
But there is good news! Opting to care for your hands and nails can reap big rewards. Half of that care comes with regular manicures. Our professionally trained nail technician will clean, file and trim, shape, and buff your nails to a high shine.
Buffing your nails actually promotes blood flow in the nail bed, which promotes healthy nail growth. And that’s what you want!
Our technician will also suggest a nail strengthener to fortify and strengthen your nails. This is very important because it protects fragile nails while rebuilding them.
The other half of nail care comes in the form of nutrition. Nails need plenty of protein, B vitamins and C. Make sure you eat real food that supports building healthy nails and body.
If your nails are causing you problems, we can help. Make an appointment today!
