Are your nails brittle or yellow in color and you don't have the money to go to a salon? Don't worry because SSPDaily has prepared effective folk recipes that will help you cope with this problem at home.

Olive oil for moisturizing

Olive oil is not only an indispensable kitchen ingredient but also an effective nail treatment as it contains essential nutrients and antioxidants that promote the growth and strengthening of the nail plate.

  1. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a bowl in the microwave for a few seconds.
  2. Rub the warm product into your nails and cuticles with light massage movements for five minutes.
  3. Put on cotton gloves and leave the oil on overnight.
  4. Repeat this procedure two to three times a week to achieve noticeable results.

Lemon juice for whitening

Yellow, discolored nails can look very unattractive. Lemon juice acts as a natural bleach, so it can help to cope with this problem.

  1. Squeeze the juice of one lemon into a small bowl and add an equal amount of water.
  2. Soak your nails in the lemon-water mixture for about 10 minutes.
  3. Rinse your hands thoroughly and apply a moisturizer to avoid drying out your nails.
  4. For best results, repeat this procedure twice a week.

Garlic for strengthening

Garlic is known for its antimicrobial and antifungal properties, making it an excellent ingredient for strengthening and protecting nails.

  1. Crush a few cloves of garlic and mix them with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  2. Leave the mixture for 1-2 days so that the oil is saturated with the beneficial properties of garlic.
  3. Massage the mixture into your nails and cuticles.
  4. Leave on for 30 minutes and rinse with warm water.
  5. Perform this procedure twice a week to see the strengthening effect.

Coconut oil for moisturizing

Moisturizing is very important for healthy nails, and coconut oil is a fantastic natural cream to help you with this.

  1. Take a small amount of coconut oil and heat it until it becomes liquid.
  2. Gently massage the warm oil onto your nails and cuticles.
  3. Leave the mixture on for at least 20 minutes and then rinse off.
  4. For optimal results, repeat this procedure daily.

Apple cider vinegar for strengthening

  1. Mix equal parts apple cider vinegar and water in a bowl.
  2. Soak your nails in this mixture for about 15 minutes.
  3. Rinse them thoroughly and then apply a moisturizer.
  4. To achieve a good effect, do this procedure once a week.

Foods rich in biotin

Include biotin-rich foods in your diet. This can help strengthen your nails. For example, eat more eggs, nuts, seeds, and leafy greens.
