Always dreamed and longed for stronger nails? Whether you’re looking to try out new nail art or a classic manicure, extra length is key but you want to make sure that you have a strong foundation first. It’s time to say bye to dry brittle nails. Read our expert tips to find out how to make your nails grow faster, stronger, and healthier for good.
Take Care Of Your Nails
It's simple, to make your nails grow faster, you need to take care of them. First stop any picking, pushing, and biting as soon as you can. Fingernails tend to grow between 3-4mm a month on average, so make sure to trim and file them regularly to promote healthy growth and prevent snags. When you file we recommend always going in one direction with smooth strokes. Going back and forth can cause fraying and can lead to breaking. You may want to schedule a routine manicure to help with this if you feel as if your filing skills are not up to par.
Love Your Cuticles
Remember this: healthy cuticles equal healthy nails. If your cuticles are dry, it can lead to breakage. Look for cuticle oil rich in moisturizing lightweight oils such as grape seed, almond, or sunflower oils. Luckily, Digits And Spikes Nail Studio has you covered. We carry standard and mini size cuticle oils that lock in moisture, preserves the cuticle seal, and strengthens the nail itself. Pro tip: massage in the oil in your cuticles at the matrix (aka: the root of the nail) to stimulate blood flow and help your nails grow faster.
Much like your hair, nails need vitamins and minerals to stay healthy. Eating the right foods and drinking lots of water is the most crucial thing you can do to promote consistent nail growth.
Make sure you add lots of folate found in spinach, asparagus and avocado, zinc found in oysters, beans and nuts and biotin found in salmon, egg yolks and broccoli into your diet. We recommend adding in a biotin supplement too, as studies have shown significant increases in nail thickness and hardness after taking one regularly.
