Q. I was having trouble with my nails. Although I tried a number of remedies, some very expensive, nothing seemed to work. Then my daughter told me to try castor oil.
I put it on my nails and leave it on for 15 or 20 minutes, then rub in as much as possible and wipe the residue off. It has made all the difference. I'm glad I found something so effective and yet so simple. I don't get hangnails anymore either.
A. Thanks for the tip. Others have found almond oil can also be helpful.
