  1. Eat a protein-, zinc- and iron-enriched diet

    Protein, zinc and iron play an important role in healthy and faster nail growth. Eat a diet enriched with all of these nutrients.

  2. Take vitamins or health supplements

    Take health supplements that support nail growth, such as Biotin, vitamin C and vitamin E.

  3. Moisturize your cuticles regularly

    Moisturize the cuticles regularly to promote faster nail growth and to avoid nail breakage.

  4. Reduce hand washing

    Reduce the number of times the hands go into water, as warm water causes skin and nails to dry out. Use cool water when washing your hands, and wear gloves when washing dishes.

  5. Use nail oil

    Use nail oil regularly. Be sure to push back the cuticles when doing this.

  6. Avoid using nail polish and polish remover

    Avoid using nail polish or nail polish remover for one month. Avoid using gel polish and wearing fake nails as well, as these can inhibit healthy nail growth.
