How Do I Prevent Breakage Pure Nails Madison WI

Nails are not just a fashion statement; they can also be indicators of our overall health. One common issue many people face is nail breakage. Understanding the causes behind nail breakage and implementing preventive measures can help maintain strong, healthy nails. Let’s explore the factors contributing to nail breakage and effective strategies for prevention.

Causes of Nail Breakage

Lack of Moisture

Dry nails are more prone to breakage as they lack the flexibility and strength provided by moisture. Exposure to harsh chemicals, frequent hand washing, and cold weather can all contribute to dryness. This is why it is important to keep your nails and cuticles moisturized with our PURE NAILS Cuticle Oil. It contains many beneficial oils such as jojoba, apricot, and sunflower oil that your nails love!

Weak Nail Structure

Some individuals naturally have weaker nail structures, making them more susceptible to breakage. This can be due to genetics, nutritional deficiencies, or underlying health conditions. If you want to add more strength and structure to your nails, consider booking a PURE SCULPT MANI. This service uses a non-toxic overlay using a thicker gel to create a stronger nail and creates a more flexible and natural looking nail than acrylic or dip, so it is a great solution if you are prone to your natural nails breaking.

Trauma or Injury

Physical trauma or injury to the nails, such as banging them against hard surfaces or using them as tools, can weaken the nails and lead to breakage. Your nails are jewels, not tools! Please use the correct tools to open items to prevent damaging your natural nails.

Prevention Tips

Keep Nails Moisturized

Regularly moisturize your nails and cuticles with our PURE NAILS Cuticle Oil to prevent dryness and maintain flexibility. Pay special attention to massaging the cuticle oil into the cuticles, nail bed, and the skin underneath your nail. If your nails are dehydrated, it can cause your nails to curl away from your polish and create lifting or chipping.

Protect Your Nails

Wear gloves when performing tasks that may expose your nails to trauma or chemicals, such as cleaning or gardening. By not taking this preventative measure, it can cause your polish to lift/chip as well as weaken your nails and not last as long as you had hoped. Wearing gloves can help prevent physical damage and maintain nail health.
