The nails are cutaneous appendages, also called “horny productions of the epidermis”, which are placed on the dorsal face of the last phalanges of the fingers and toes.
The nails contribute substantially to the manipulative precision of the hand. Thanks to the presence of these foils we are able to handle very small objects, such as a pin.
The nails also give the fingertips greater sensitivity, thanks to the rich innervation of the nail bed. Finally, these structures act as real protective plates of the digital end.
It is everyone’s dream to show off perfect, long, long, non-flaking nails, with the polish that never ruins, and this is the reason why you hear more and more often about treatments such as nail reconstruction or semi-permanent polish, a very fashionable in vogue even among the very young who, however, perhaps are not sufficiently aware of the potential damage and structural diseases and deficiencies of the nails.
The problem of flaking nails is widespread and occurs with greater incidence in women aged between 20 and 40 years. Furthermore, this disorder tends to occur mainly at the level of the nails of the hands.
The causes that lead to the flaking of the nails can be many and varied. In most cases, the nails tend to flake because they are excessively dehydrated and, even in this case, the causes that cause this dehydration can be different.
When it occurs on non-reconstructed nails, in detail, we see the splitting of the nail plate, due to which the most superficial layers tend to flake and detach from the rest of the nail. In this way, the nail becomes increasingly fragile and the free margin appears fragmented. The flaking of the nail surface layers is technically called “lamellar onychoschitia”.
Otherwise the cause of the weakening of the reconstructed nails is given by the techniques used for its application, by the product and also by how they are removed.
A good rule of thumb would be that every four refills, the reconstruction should be dismantled. The nails should be left “free” for 15/20 days, not so much to let them breathe (the nails do not breathe) but because, once you decide to eliminate it, the nail is “proven” and must be treated properly to heal it. It is difficult to say how long to wait for a subsequent application because it is a very subjective condition. In this period, the natural nail should be nourished and reinvigorated with natural elements, the same that make it up, to ensure the matrix regenerates and the nail hardens.
SERUM CLAVUS STREGHTENER
It is a natural oil created for the treatment of brittle nails that tend to flake, either for endogenous causes (food deficiencies, aging, ailments and diseases) or exogenous ones (traumas and chemical substances, cosmetics, reconstructions) which is associated with different substances that are naturally contained in the nails.
How to use SERUM CLAVUS STRENGTHENER
After eliminating the reconstruction and cleaning the nails with a gentle peeling such as OLEUM LEVIS, diluted 50% with water, and properly rinsed, apply SERUM CLAVUS STRENGTHENER, leave it on the nails for at least ten minutes; at the end of the 10 minutes, perform a light massage on your nails to absorb the excess product without rinsing. This procedure must be repeated at least three times a week for three weeks. At the end of the treatment period your nails will be reborn and strong again; at that point you will decide whether to apply the reconstruction again or show off your fabulous natural nails.
