How to Make Nails Grow Faster?
You might dream of a beautiful set of healthy, natural fingernails, but you may not be sure how to get your nails to grow fast enough to fulfill your every wish. While you can’t make your nails grow inhumanly fast, there are things you can do to boost nail health and make them grow as fast as possible!
Strengthening Nails through Lifestyle
1. Strengthen your nails with a biotin supplement. Take a daily biotin supplement, which you can find at larger retailers, pharmacies, and health food stores. Regular use of biotin can strengthen your nails and make them less likely to split or break.
There is no current safe daily limit for how much biotin you can take. You should still avoid taking large doses unless you’re under the supervision of a doctor.
You can also take a collagen supplement to help strengthen your nails.
2. Eat foods high in vitamin B7.
Biotin is another name for vitamin B7. Incorporate foods into your diet that are high in this vitamin, which may boost the effect of your biotin supplements and make your nails stronger. Include any of the following choices:
-Fish, chicken, and pork
Limit exposure to water. Expose your nails to water only when absolutely necessary, such as when you are showering or washing your hands. Wear gloves when you’re washing dishes, doing chores, or exposing your hands to other liquids. Limiting your nails’ exposure to water can keep them moisturized and minimize the risk that they break.
Avoid harsh detergents and chemicals. Limit how much you expose your nails to household cleaners and detergents. Use a non-acetone nail polish remover to get rid of old polish. Harsh cleansers and chemicals can dry out your nails and protect your hands from strong detergents and other chemicals as you go about your day.
Wear rubber gloves when you’re washing the dishes or cleaning.
Move to a warmer climate. People who live in areas with mild winters and hot summers have fast-growing nails. Take more vacations in warmer locales such as Florida, the Caribbean, Greece, or Bali if you’re not ready to give up your life in the northern hemisphere for the sake of nail growth.
Protect your hands when it's cold outside to keep your nails from getting brittle and give them the chance to grow long.
Get plenty of sun, even in the winter, since the sun helps your body create the vitamin D your nails need to grow faster.
Performing Regular Nail Maintenance
Shape your nails with a nail file regularly. Use a fine-grit file and file each of your nails in one direction once per week. You should also file your nails anytime they break peel or chip. Shape them into an oval, which helps them stay strong.
Avoid shaping your nails into points, which makes them more likely to break.
Moisturize your nails daily. Rub a heavier, oil-based moisturizer onto your nails and cuticles every day. Moisturizing regularly can keep your nails from cracking, peeling, and becoming brittle, which may cause nails to break and appear like they’re not growing.
Try a rich moisturizer specifically formulated for hands, nails, and cuticles. You can also get a cuticle oil to moisturize your cuticles and the nail bed.
Keep your nails healthy by using cuticle oil to moisturize your cuticles.
Stop biting your nails. Resist the temptation to nibble on your fingernails, even if they are brittle. Leaving your nails alone gives them a chance to grow and can make them appear to get longer faster. Some ways to stop biting your nails include:
Clipping broken nails with nail scissors instead of biting them off.
Applying a bitter-tasting nail polish to your nails.
Replacing nail-biting with a good habit such as playing with a stress ball.
Avoiding things that trigger you to bite your nails such as boredom or stress.
Swipe on a clear polish. Get a simple clear or even colored nail polish. Paint one layer on your nails and reapply as necessary. Putting on a layer of nail polish can provide a protective shield for your nails that strengthens them and prevents breaks.
If you wear gel polish, make sure to remove it by soaking your nails in acetone. Don't pick at your nails, as you can damage the surface of your nails.
