I have recently stopped being a nail biter and whilst I still have a fair way to go, as my nails approach the neds of my fingers for the first time in my life, I realise I need something to help them on their journey!
They are ridged, quite thin, but bendy but more brittle I guess.
I don't really like the shiny finish that most products give tho, it draws the eye to them and they are still very ugly!
I've been using a nail buffer and I've found that my nails have been a lot stronger and grow much more quickly. The one I use is a foam block which has a 3 step system. 1st step is supposed to smooth out the ridges, 2nd step improves circulation and the 3rd gives your nails a lovely sheen which lasts for a week or so. I bought one at first from a stall in Debenhams but replaced it much more cheaply from e-bay.
Awww I wish my DS' hair grew like that. I am contemplating whether to have it cut at the moment but not sure as he's never had one before and is the same age as your DS. Has your DS had one since that photo? I think the longer you go without cutting it the harder it becomes!
yes here for nail oil and nail buffer, only things that stop my nails going to bits - larger boots do a nail kit with both in, which is where I got my first one from! The nail oil is like a roller ball so you don't waste it, does last ages
