What is the best way to get nails to grow strong?

What is the best way to get nails to grow strong? And how to get them to go fast. You see I am a nail biter but I have recently quit but my nails are hardly growing. Any suggestions?

Re: What is the best way to get nails to grow strong?

Nail growth and thickness are all genetic, you get it from your parents, jsut like you inherit your skin and hair type and everything else. The longer you bite your nails, the more trauma they experience.

Eat a healthy diet, drink plenty of water and schedule a series of regular manicures at your local salon. Also, go to your local Sally Beauty Supply and get a bottle of Botanical Oil in the nail department. Apply at least twice a day and massage into the skin and nails. This oil will help to rehydrate, condition and moisturize the skin and nails and help them to grow in healthy. Nothing will make them grow faster.

Re: What is the best way to get nails to grow strong?

Nails grow very slowly so it will take a long time for them to even grow out but what helps me keep strong nails is taking Centrum 21 multivit. It has what the nails need to grow stong. It will take about a year to notice but it sure did make mine stronger. I use to have the kind that peeled off so I always had weak and short nails. I have tried other things but after 15 years I have discovered that one thing is the best thing I ever used.
