what does it mean when my fingernails bend all the way?

my nails are not very long , just barely over my fingertips.... they tear easily once they get to that length .... but I can actually bend them back ( without it hurting or breaking) ..... and I really cant even scratch because they bend....

  • Not only vitamins but protein - is your hair brittle too? You may want to consult with a doctor.
