I bought Healthy Hoof by Gena from Nail Polish Canada which I received in the mail a couple of days ago. It is an intensive protein treatment that is supposed to moisturize and nourish nails and cuticles. It said it will heal splitting, peeling nails, so I am hoping this will help me out.
The directions are to massage into nails and cuticles daily. I have been doing this for three days now on my naked nails. I figure this would work best without any polish on at all. I plan to do
this for at least 7 days, maybe 10 to give my nails a chance for this
to work. I doubt this will stop the damage that is already there, but it
may help to nourish the new nail growth, which hopefully won't split
and peel anymore. I stopped pushing my cuticles back about nine months ago,
as I had read that doing that can create brittleness and damage to your
nails. I honestly believe it has been helping, as my nails are not
peeling as much as they use to. So now I am trying to be more active
with moisturizing my cuticles and hands in general.
The product seems good and absorbs nicely into the skin and nail. I had just applied it a few minutes before taking this photo this morning. I am happy with the product so far. Maybe if I'm super lucky it'll help reduce the ridges on my nails that are so obvious in this photo. ;-)
