I would supplement if you want real results... I don't really think hoof oils are that great IMO, but supplementing with a high biotin supplement will definitely help, though it takes a while still to see it since the hoof has to grow out...
Hoof oil can actually dry hooves out more than anything, since it is water repellent, if they are already dry, it prevents more water from entering the walls. Just hosing them for a few minutes every day or even making a mud patch with clean(no poo or pee) dirt will help to moisturize them. If they are brittle and flaky I would go with a supplement and maybe a cream like corona or some hoof conditioner instead of an oil.
