It is usually seen that girls do not bother wearing gloves while doing daily routine chores or tasks. As prevention is always better than cure, start wearing gloves while doing dishes, gardening, cleaning, mopping, dusting and washing clothes. As chemicals used in washing liquids, detergents, soaps and home cleansers are too harsh for your skin and nails that they literary make them dry off the base. Also gardening fertilizers and pesticides are way too dangerous for your nails to break or split them up… making them weak in any way.
It has also seen that some girls are habitual of washing hands too much. Even I myself am one of the victims … Sigh!!!… It just gives a sense of purity, cleaning and satisfaction. All it ends up in over drying the hands and nails, either making them too weak to be broken easily or too dry to split up easily. This is just the psychological thing and nothing else. Stop washing your hands even after touching your hairs… that’s true. Some girls, even boys do feel dirt or something tacky on their hands after touching or holding each and everything around. This has to be ceased to avoid nail breakage.
This could be one of the best things you’d do with your nails. Of all the creams, lotions and serums, oils have the most powerful feature of restoring the actual moisture of your nails and skin inside, being natural and enrich.
Olive Oil could be the best remedy in ting regard. Soak your nails in olive oil around 12-15 minutes a day for a month. Then repeating twice a week only would be sufficed.
Do not share your manicure tools with anyone else, as it will only increase chances of getting bacteria, making your nails weak and dry. Even avoid sharing any of your personal care or skin products with anyone around. It causes skin contamination and allergies ending up in breakouts.

Biotin supplements are also available in the market, but it is recommended to fulfill the requirement naturally with diet at first place.
