: Marti, I saw your post reply to Cinderella's question re: "White Flecks & Ridges". Thank you for posting that URL. I have alopecia areata which is now affecting my fingernails and unfortunately, my nails do look like the pictures (of the "brittle nails") on your website. Besides keeping my nails out of water and rubbing them with jojoba oil, do you have any other suggestions? Would it be a mistake to get fibreglass wraps put on them or "gel nails"? If you have any other suggestions to improve the looks of my natural nails, I'd appreciate it. Thank you very much.
I would not suggest having any type of nail enhancement applied over you nails due to the already existing problem. Alopecia Areata effects the fingernails because nails are made from the same type of protein as hair. You might want to read the web page entitled 'Your Natural Nails' -- especially the section on 'The Building Blocks'. I think this might answer some more of your questions.
