Eversince I broke my nail I still haven’t been able to grow it back properly. Sure it would grow a couple of cms but the tips would peel. This is the first time my nails acted this way. Aside from peeling, its so brittle! The only way I could make it long is to “reinforce” it with nail polish. But then, it would be so yellow I wouldn’t want to color it anymore!
I did a little reading on nails and here are possible causes:
- CLIMATE CHANGE
- DIETARY ISSUES
- PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION
- PSORIASIS, YEAST INFECTION AND OTHER SKIN CONDITIONS
- CHEMICAL EXPOSURE
- IMMERSION IN WATER
- POST FAKE NAIL TRAUMA
- WRONG KIND OF NAIL TREATMENTS (Formaldehyde, an ingredient in several popular strengtheners, can cause drying and irritation of the skin and nails—not to mention being a suspected cause of breast cancer. Switch to a nail care product that’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl pthalate)
I could be affected by the climate change, I do not have any prescription meds, no skin conditions that I could think of, no chemical exporsure. I wash the dishes but I don’t think that’s enough to make my nails brittle and weak. I don’t wear fake nails.
Most probably I lack the vitamins and minerals my nails needs and I might be using the wrong kinds of treatments. (I must check that!!)
Has anyone experienced this? What did you do??
