How To Make Your Nails Grow Faster!


 Fingernails provide more than just a surface to paint. They protect the fingers, make it easier to grab things, and are a convenient way to scratch an itch.

Having longer, healthier fingernails can make the hands look better, and make it easier to type, play a musical instrument, or perform daily tasks.

Nail growth remedies will not typically make the nails grow faster. Instead, they prevent the nails from breaking, helping them look healthier and grow longer.

Fast facts on how to make your nails grow faster:

  • Fingernails grow an average of 3.5 millimeters (mm) per month.
  • Various factors—including overall health, nutrition, and nail care—can affect growth rates.
  • No special lotion or nail polish can make the nails grow longer.
  • Stronger nails can grow longer because they are less likely to break or peel.

How fingernails grow

Understanding how the nails grow can make it easier to make lifestyle changes that support nail health.

Nail plate

The hard part of the nail is called the nail plate. The nail plate, much like hair, is made primarily from a protein called keratin.

The nail plate is not made of living tissue, so it is not possible to improve the health of the nail plate. While it is possible to prevent breakage of the nail plate, nail health begins in the nail bed.
