What are brittle nails?

But first of all, what are brittle nails anyway? Brittle nails, also known as brittle or weak nails, are a common problem characterized by nails that easily break, split or flake.

This can make the nails look thin, uneven and unhealthy. The symptoms of brittle nails are different for everyone, but you can often speak of weak nails if you have complaints such as:

  • Breaking nails;
  • Split nails;
  • Nails that fold in half;
  • Torn nails;
  • Loose nails.

Obviously all very annoying nail problems to have, but fortunately all easy to solve. But what causes brittle nails?…

What causes brittle nails?

The strength of your nails is largely determined genetically, but other factors also play a role. The exact cause of brittle nails is different for everyone.The cause of brittle nails can vary and is often a combination of several factors.

Here are some of the most common causes of brittle nails:

1. Nutritional deficiencies

One of the main causes of brittle nails is a lack of essential nutrients. A deficiency of biotin, a B vitamin, in particular can lead to weak nails. Biotin plays a crucial role in the health of skin, hair and nails.

Other important nutrients include iron, which helps transport oxygen to the nail cells, and proteins, which are the building blocks of the nails. Inadequate intake of these nutrients can result in brittle, thin and easily split nails.

2. Prolonged exposure to water and chemicals

Regular and prolonged contact with water, especially hot water, can dry out the nails and make them weaker. This is because water can wash away the nails' natural oils, making them dry and brittle.


Also The use of cleaning products and chemicals, such as nail polish remover with acetone, can damage the nails. These products can damage the natural protective layer of the nails, resulting in brittleness.

3. Excessive use of nail polish and artificial nails

Frequently applying nail polish or wearing artificial nails for long periods of time can also contribute to brittle nails. Nail polish, especially those that contain strong chemicals, can dry out and weaken the nail.

Additionally, the process of removing nail polish, especially with strong removers, can further damage the nails. The use of artificial nails, such as acrylic nails, can lead to a thinning of the natural nails, making them more brittle.

Tips to strengthen your brittle nails

It can be very annoying to suffer from a brittle nail and/or nails. That's why we've put together our best tips to make sure you know how to strengthen your nails!

Tip 1: Avoid water contact

By frequently going in and out of the water, there is a constant change of hydration and dehydration. This causes the nail plate to absorb too much moisture and can become brittle.


So make sure you put on rubber gloves when you do the dishes, for example, to prevent brittle nails!

Tip 2: Avoid chemicals

Chemical substances such as cleaning products and nail polish remover based on acetone are really disastrous for your nails. In addition, it is important to always use nail polish remover without acetone.


Acetone removes moisture from your nails, which is obviously not desirable.
