Hair & Nails help that works

hilltop_gwJune 10, 2007

Thought I'd share two things that really helped with my chronically poor nails and dry hair (age 50 & post-menopausal). I thought I'd tried every nail polish, hair creme, shampoo or cure-all, but these have actually worked.

For my hair - I started taking 1000 mg flax oil soft gels. Hair finally feels softer & silky & I can grow it a little longer.

For my nails I found a capsule called Appearex. Check out their web-site & get a coupon here:

Sorry bud_wi, should have made myself more clear. I am a farmwife from Nebraska who spends a lot of time in the sun, wind & dirt. I happened to find two solutions to problems that I had and got up the courage to post and share. I could care less if you buy either product. I just got tired of spending $$$ driving an hour to get my nails done & thought someone else might appreciate a suggestion. I sincerely didn't realize I need to wait until someone asks a specific question before offering an opinion. Note I didn't give a "brand" for the flax oil--probably any Omega 3 oil might work. I did mention the other product because it's the only one of many that I've tried that worked. I seldom post on this site--I don't have much to offer in the way of decorating or landscaping advice. Sorry if I didn't approach this correctly.

Hi, I read this post. It didn't sound like spam to me. I appreciate the flax oil info. I take it for my skin, nice to know it helps hair as well. My nails are a tragedy. I'll check out the site. I take a hair/nail supplement but haven't seen much if any improvement.

hilltop, don't worry about it, this forum is inundated with spam so people might be too hasty to spot it.
ah, nails; one thing that gets moisture in is taking the buffing side of a nail file and buffing the oil in on the nail, it seems to make it penetrate better.
I also try to remember to wear rubber gloves as much as I can.
