Brittle nails are extremely annoying and can cause discomfort. For example, your nails might keep catching on the material of your clothes. In addition, splitting nails look unattractive. Below are the main causes and our suggested solutions for brittle nails.
THE CAUSES OF SPLITTING NAILS:
The wrong way of filing can contribute to brittle nails.
Cutting = splitting
A nail consists of three nail plates. When you cut the nails, you put extra pressure on these layers, which cause them to break, become loose and eventually split.
Warm and cold again
Fluctuations in temperature and the change between humid and dry environments can cause problems for nails. This is especially problematic in the winter when you constantly go from inside to outside where it is colder. During the summer, nails are much stronger and growth is better supported.
Hard, harder, hardest
We recommend using a nail hardener when you suffer from splitting nails. A nail hardener not only makes nails harder and stronger but also removes excess moisture from the nails, which prevents nails from splitting earlier.
Aggressive nail polish removers
Most nail polish removers are aggressive and worsen the condition of your nails. These aggressive and often cheap removers do not take care of the rest of the nail. As these nail polish removers eliminate the moisture from your nails, the risk of brittle nails is much higher.
