When I first heard about benefits of coconut oil, I knew I had to try it out. After my purchase I soon started using it as a make up remover and as a moisturizer. Sometimes I would apply a very small amount to the tips of my hair. Soon I started noticing positive affects on my nails as well; they got whiter and stronger and they wouldn’t break like they did before I was introduced to coconut oil.
After awhile I tried other oils as well such as argan oil and avocado oil (which I am currently using). I really like the affect all these oils have had on my nails.
In the past I normally didn’t even have to use scissors, because my nails would break as soon as they grew a bit. Now my weekly nails routine consists of scissors, a nail file and oil, which I apply almost every day.
1. Scissors from Boots
2. A nail file from Leighton Denny
3. Avocado oil from Neal’s Yard Remedies (at first I bought a different brand, which had refined avocado oil and I didn’t like it as much as I like this one. It had a different texture, color and smell. Unrefined oil is definitely a better option.)
These are my nails at the moment. Not perfect, however, I am very satisfied with the difference the oil usage made.
