Hi.
As per your case history of curling of hair and nails, my treatment advice is -
1. Curling of hair is completely genetic. So it cannot be reversed.
2. Curling of nails can be due to multivitamin deficiency.
3. Take an iron supplement and vitamin b12 supplement once daily for 3 months.
4. Other treatment options are oral antifungals and injectable multivitamins given only after consulting a dermatologist.

Thanks.
