If there is one single carrier oil that can repair, nourish and protect your nails and cuticles then that is Pure Cold pressed Jojoba oil. This is an ideal solution for nail cleansing and nail fungus.
Jojoba oil is deeply nourishing to nails and is also able to repair damaged collagen matrix inside nail beds, improving strength and promoting healthy nail growth.
The most crucial vitamin which is essential to keep your nails strong, healthy and shiny is Vitamin E. Almost all the nail treatments are loaded with this vitamin and the jojoba oil contains natural forms of vitamin E in it which acts as an antioxidant.

Quick Tip: Carry a small Jojoba oil bottle too in your purse, like how you carry your sanitizer and use it to moisturize your nails whenever they feel dry.
Let the oil soak in and treat your cuticles. If your nails are really very brittle and your cuticles are dry and chapped, then apply Jojoba oil twice daily to your nails using above method. Once in the morning and once before going to bed.
Repeat for at least 45 days to see any visible difference. Do not use any chemicals like nail polish or nail polish removers during this treatment. Avoid all together if possible.
I personally don’t prefer using nail polish or paints to my nails. The last time I used it was on my marriage which was two years ago 😀 Trust me, you will see a visible difference in your nails’ health once you ditch all these polishes and removers. These are made with high concentrations of alcohols and acetones which make your nails very dull, dark and brittle over use.
Last but not least, eat for good nails. Yes, like how our hair is our nails too are made of keratin, a type of protein that’s a basic component of hair, skin, and nails. Eat good protein rich food so that your body has adequate protein to produce keratin, which is responsible for keeping your nails strong and resilient.
