What are Brittle Nails?
Brittle nails refers to a condition in which fingernails are fragile and break frequently, appearing split at the tips and never managing to grow to a reasonable length. Everyone wants to have attractive looking nails, and this often leads to a low self-esteem.
Help for Brittle Nails
Brittle nails can be prevented and treated. Conventional treatment for brittle nails may include strong nail ‘building’ polishes, creams and treatments; however, these treatments are chemical and may be accompanied by unpleasant side effects.
One need not suffer with unsightly brittle nails, as nature’s ingredients can help to support healthy and safe nail care. Natural herbal and homeopathic ingredients can help to nourish the nail bed and promote nail growth. Herbs such as Melaleuca laterifolia (Tea Tree Oil) and Lavendula officinalis (Lavender) can help to heal cracked or damaged surfaces of the nail gently, while still conditioning the cuticles and nail beds. Fragrant herbs such as Lemon Grass and Clove Oil can provide natural antiseptic properties and help soothe inflamed skin while helping to prevent infection, without side effects or harsh chemicals.
