Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Nail Treatment
Along with the amazing polishes the people at Sally Hansen sent me, they also sent me 2 nail treatments and a bottle of their amazing cuticle oil. I can't tell you how happy I am to be able to try out these products.
The first product that I've decided to try out is the Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Daily Nail Treatment. Now I don't really know what made me chose to use this one first but I did. Now you should also know that I do take vitamins (I just take an over the counter pre-natal vitamin, it works really well) to aid in nail growth and health.
Lately I have been having a problem though with my nails breaking and peeling. Not sure if the peeling is from changing my polish so often or just a lack of something but I was hoping this would help.
The instructions on this one says you can use it under polish but you should apply 1 coat to your nails daily. I have been using as a base coat under my polish and if I am going to be putting on a darker polish that might stain I use 2 coats of this just because. I have been using it for roughly one month now and I can't tell if it's improved my nail growth a whole lot but I do notice a slight improvement in growth. I have also noticed a huge improvement in the peeling. I do still have one nail that likes to peel but I'm thinking it's just because that one likes to curve inward on the edge.
I would say overall I would definitely recommend this product to someone who was wanting to grow their problem nails. I think for this next month I am going to try the other nail treatment they sent me and see how well that one works too.
I've also been using their Vitamin E cuticle oil. I apply this after each mani I do and every evening before bed. I apply generously the cuticle oil to around the cuticle and then massage it in. Once I've got the cuticle oil all massaged in I put on a nice thick layer of moisturizing hand cream and rub that in. As you can see, My cuticles are looking better than ever. Usually I have a big problem with hang nails and such but I am happy to report that as long as I keep up this routine of lotion and cuticle oil, I do not have a problem with my cuticles any longer.
