  • Pure Apple cider vinegar...liquid of pill form. Almost an instant result. Edit - Apple Cider Vinegar is known for its good properties and will among other things, lower blood pressure. The pill form comes in dosages of 150 mg to 500 mg. A good health food shop will tell you the dosage to take. If you are unsure ask your doctor first. It is absolutely incredible to see the change inside a week. The nails will take on a new healthy appearance and growth.
  • I'm no expert at this at all but I remember a lady in junior high showed us about pushing our cuticles back to promote nail growth. I remember being surprised the following week how much my nails grew on the one hand that I performed the experiment on but not on the other. Give it a try and let me know if it works for you. This 'may' be because I was in the age group listed in the 'fingernail facts' answer but it's worth a try I think.
  • I found that vaseline intensive care hand and nail cream worked a treat at making my nails grow faster and stronger.
  • One word, Bio-tin. also lots of protein because your nail are basically pure protein.
  • Gelatin will speed nail growth, and make your nails stronger, too. Most drugstores will sell gelatin capsules (non-prescription). One capsule three times daily seems to be an effective dosage, based on my own experience.
  • My cosin used to eat Jelly which she got from a nail shop which made her nails stonger so not easy to break which will also make them longer as they would last longer! Just one jelly square a day!
  • I found my nails grew a lot faster when I moved to a hard water area, and grew slower when I moved back to a soft water area. I suspect this is probably due to trace minerals in the harder water affecting nail growth- though moing house just to make ones nails grow quicke seems a little extreme! I have read that the herbal supplement Milk Thistle improves nail growth and condition- I haven't tried it personally, but it may be worth a go, perhaps someone else has tried it?
  • There is a product at GNC called Biotin for healthy nails and hair! It works really well, I could notice a difference in about a week! Also there is a growth treatment by Nutra Nail that works really well to.

  • eat lots of jello... it's good for your joints too
  • I am a nail tech, and agree the with the person that suggested Rejuvacote. I swear by it! However, use it as directed. Over using can cause nails to be too brittle and they will break. Also, when your nails seem to be healthy enough, you can start using it just a couple times a week. Also, Using cuticle oil or even olive oil is great to use evry night before bed. It keeps your cuicles soft and your nails hydrated. Women that have artificial nails should do the same so the natural nail underneath doesn't start to dry up and curl away from the tip.
  • Eat more protien. I started a high protien and low refined carb type diet and my once weak, short finger nails are growing like gangbusters. They are also stronger. I also keep a nail hardener on them, like Sally Hansen or just generic.

  • One way to ensure that nails grow at their optimal rate is to take an inventory of your nutritional habits. Extreme dieting, particularly low protein diets can slow down nail growth. Make sure you're not restricting calories excessively and are getting a sufficient amount of protein in your diet on a daily basis. Your diet should also be well balanced to provide the vitamins and minerals needed to help fingernails grow fast. If there's some question as to whether your diet is adequate, add a multivitamin and consider drinking a protein drink once a day. Another consideration is your general health status. A variety of underlying disease states can slow down fingernail growth and make nails more fragile. These include kidney disease, thyroid disease, cancer, and a host of other medical conditions. If you're concerned about nail growth and are experiencing other symptoms, a few lab studies might be in order to rule out underlying health conditions that could contribute to nail problems. The last factor to consider if you're concerned about how to make your fingernails grow faster is blood flow to the matrix of the nail. Activities that increase blood flow to the fingernails may stimulate nail growth. Some activities that may do this include frequent typing, playing the piano, and other activities where you use your hands a lot. Surprisingly enough, biting your nails can have the same effect, although it wouldn't be recommended. While it may not be practical to take up piano to make fingernails grow faster, using your hands as frequently as possible on a daily basis may help. Probably the best strategy to make fingernails grow faster is to make sure you're getting enough protein and are practicing sound eating habits on a daily basis. Engage your hands as much as possible to stimulate blood flow and make sure you're taking meticulous care of your nails to keep them from splitting or breaking. From BeyondJane
  • Eating a well balanced meal, high in calcium, is all you need to think about. Take at least the recommended dosage of calcium daily. Regular trims will keep the ends of the nail strong and thick
  • Massage your fingers and finger nails with a cream like vasaline handcare. This gives good circulation and helps the nails grow faster :) x

  • Include food rich in calcium, protein, vitamin C and zinc in your diet. Milk, eggs, curd, sesame seeds, figs, peanuts, almonds, chick peas, greens, sprouts are all rich in calcium. Include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet.More natural tips at http://healthbeautytips.net/nailcare.htm
  • sometimes it's just in our genes I'm guessing, as my nails grow like SUPER FAST. When I used to bite them they grew slow, but now I carry a nail clipper in my purse everywhere I go. =) The healthier your body is the healthier your nails will be.
  • Follow these simple steps: Nails are made from protein, therefore it is important that you have a proper intake of protein rich foods such as eggs, beans and meats. Apply garlic paste to your nails twice a week or simply cut a garlic clove in half and rub it on your nails. Garlic is effective to make your nails grow fast. Avoid detergents because it can be harsh for your nails and effect its growth. To protect from harmful chemicals always wear gloves. Trim your nails regularly. Do not use nail polishes of ordinary brands, go for good brands and use best nail polishes. Dry and dull nails are prone to breakage. Moisturize your nails with olive oil.
