I have always had weak, brittle fingernails. And, my cuticles tend to get very dry, then they often crack and become painful. I recently started putting Melaleuca Melagel on my fingernails, working it into the cuticles. Almost immediately, I saw improvement in the condition of my cuticles. Plus, my nails are growing longer and stronger than ever before! I love the way my nails look, and I don’t have to pay for fake nails!
