What Causes Brittle Fingernails?




My fingernails crack like egg shells and easily layer off and are very brittle. Is there a reason for this? Is there a way to correct it?

Answer #1

There are various reasons that may cause your fingernails brittle. One of the major reasons is over exposure to water, detergents, cleaning liquids or nail polish remover. Also Over-filing of nails and iron deficiency may be the cause of brittle nails. You can take iron supplements to overcome iron deficiency. Apply lotion or oil that contains either lanolin or alpha-hydroxy to your hands after you have soaked them in warm water for 5 minutes.
