After researching a lot about this issue in the past, also being an ex-nail tech, I would always suggest consulting with your doctor about Biotin. Biotin is a B-complex vitamin, also known as Vitamin B-7 or Vitamin H. When many girls/women came to me complaining of weak, brittle fingernails, soft, thin nails that tear easily I would always suggest Biotin, Especially when they kept asking why the ends of their nails kept splaying or spiting, I told them it is called onychoschizia.
I read in many places on many sites that by taking 2.5 mg of biotin a day, it has been shown to be helpful for this condition. (Remember, it can take up to 6 months for your fingernails to grow, so the results of the biotin you start today won’t be apparent for another six months.)
Now these are things I keep repeating time & time again about brittle nails as well...
To prevent this from happening keep your nails moist by reapplying moisturizers EVERY TIME YOU WASH YOUR HANDS (Eucerin Hand Creme, does wonders to your nails as well as your hands. If you are going to wash your hands using soap & water they will eventually get dehydrated & loose moisture. By reapplying will keep them hydrated)
Hope this helps.
I regret saying this Alejanro Chaufan, but "super glue" is the worst possible thing you can do to nails..I would stay away from super glue & try brush on nail glue which is less vicious on the nail bed.
If you have brittle nails the best solution is as I mentioned & a temp fix for that can be a mild nail wrap! Go to your nearest cvs/walgreens or rite aid shop & I am certain that you will a kit to use on a temp fix for brittle nails. You will find all u need fiberglass/silk, brush on nail glue & a nail filer...instructions on how to apply. That is way better & safer for your nails then super glue...even for guitar players.
Hope this helped.
Just use a nail brush t cean them regulary with lemon juice. The vitamin c strengthens then and the lemon acts as a natural bleachng agent to keep the tips white. Biotin is also good for you, as mentioned by the nail expert, however you should look at your diet as a whole and consume vitamin a (a good excuse for some pumpkin pie!), plenty of vitamin C (who knew food could make you look good?) & water (brittleness usually means you're dehydrated). Soaking then in whole milk once or twice a week will add necessary proteins straight to the source!
My answer will probably not fit for need but here it goes anyway: I used to play guitar in the past and therefore grew my right hand nails long. In my case super glue helped preventing nails from breaking
Sally Hanson has an excellent range of nail products to keep your nails from breaking. Also if you're nails are very brittle, try getting a folic acid supplement, they work very well.
I actually have been useing sally hanson hrd as nails for years, my nails r thick, once they get past the skin they break, and I do also take folic acid and multi vitamins everyday
