Olive Oil For Nail Strength: Does The TikTok Hack Really Work?
If you want to know how to get stronger and healthier nails, then a certain hack that's been circulating on TikTok promises to do just that. Apparently, olive oil might give your nails the boost of strength that they need, but let’s see what the professionals have to say first.
Joshua Zeichner, M.D., explains, “While [olive oil] does not promote new growth per se, it does improve brittleness and reduce breakage.” This is because, according to Debra Jaliman, M.D., olive oil contains both vitamin E and vitamin A, which can help to keep nails strong, not to mention nice and shiny.
Rachel Nazarian, M.D., F.A.A.D., pointed out that the oil might cover the nail in a way that prevents moisture from escaping, which‌ keeps the nail more hydrated, healthy, and strong. Olive oil can also soften your cuticles and restore your hands.
