Argan oil

To moisturize weakened nails, soak your fingers in a bath of milk and argan oil in equal doses for about ten minutes once a week.

It should be noted that olive, castor or sweet almond oil are also very effective.


Salt also helps to strengthen brittle nails thanks to its iodine content.

Directions for use: mix one tablespoon of salt in half a litre of warm water and soak your fingers in this liquid for 10 minutes.


Lemon is known for its revitalizing properties. To strengthen your nails, mix the juice of one lemon with a tablespoon of baking soda in a bowl.

Heat and soak your nails in the container for a few minutes before rinsing. To nourish the nail, you can also mix two tablespoons of lemon juice with two tablespoons of olive oil. Apply by massaging on nails and cuticles twice a week. This treatment is ideal for striated and brittle nails.
