The health of the nails, but also of the hair, can say a lot about the general state of health of a client. Ridged nails are among the most common nail problems. In this blog, we will talk about the causes of ridged nails.
These causes can be varied, and are particularly related to:
- Normal natural aging of the nails: indeed, the ridges on the nails are sometimes called “nail wrinkles”. Ridged nails can become more pronounced with age, and intensify for women after menopause;
- To daily habits: the use of certain varnishes, excessive manicure, small successive shocks, the use of detergents or having your hands immersed in water for a long time can cause streaks to appear;
- A Diet: Deficiencies in vitamins or essential nutrients for your nails can cause streaks, including zinc deficiency, high anemia in iron, folic acid or protein;
- In rare cases, diseases: in particular hypothyroidism, skin problems (eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, etc.), arthritis or infections (syphilis, mumps, pneumonia).
