RE: [Histonet] nails[Scanned]

From:Kemlo Rogerson

Don't think it's just water, I assuming it's something dead scientific that
alters the chemical bonding between proteins; like hydrolysis or something.
I mean what does Fabric conditioner have in it that makes cloths soft?

No I think it's something dead scientific, but I'll be beggared if I know.

This business of softening nails continues to intrigue me.
It seems that the only common factor (in all the various protocols) is
water, and that what you are doing is hydrating the nail.
Of course, you then process and dehydrate it.
It remains a mystery.
I remain unconvinced at the utility of any method.
I our hands, nails stay as hard as - well - nails I guess.

Fabric softener apparently does it to. Dunno which one, but it apparently
works; wonders if its got Tween in it too?

There is a product from Sigma called "Tween" that works great at both
softening and fixation.  It is a 5% solution in 10% formalin and stays in
there for 24 hours and then processed routinely, cut and placed on a charged
slide and we only stain for PAS unless it has the nailbed with it.  The
order number is P4634.  Good luck!
