    Vitamins for Fingernails

    I just started taking some vitamins for "Nails, Hair, and Skin". Has anybody taken them before? Do they help your nails grow long and strong?

    They absolutely help as long as they have Keratin and Vitamins...my hair grows like crazy when I take them. Some of them contain Zinc; some people have bad bathroom reactions to zinc...check if yours contain it, and if you start having some crazy new bathroom symptoms, it is from the new vitamin. I had to find a hair/skin/ nail vitamin which is zinc free.

    I took them for a while. But to be honest, I never saw any improvements. What worked for my nails, in particular, was using vitamin E as cuticle oil every night, using strength base coats, and wearing dark colored nail polishes.

    That has helped my nails grow stronger and healthier than ever before.

    Good luck with the vitamins!

    Dear Mariabbb,

    The only thing that ever helped my nails is rubbing pure almond oil
    into the nails at least twice a day and taking Biotin daily.

    Almond and jojoba oils have small enough molecules to enter the nails. No other oils that I know of can do that. I kept some almond oil by my bed and chair and massaged it in my nails several times a day. The nails have to grow out so the new healthier nail can show and that in itself takes weeks, so don't give up and you will be amazed.
