How can I get my nails to grow?

I have horrible nails. I've always struggled to get my nils to grow. They always peel in layers on my nail bed...or one nail will grow and the rest won't. They're also flimsy..how can I get them to grow??..and have strong nails? I just want them to grow to the end of my fingers, and I'm nor sure how to achieve that.

  • An overall healthy diet, and also to not bite or chew at them. Use a basic hand moisturizer like sorbolene cream. Drink lots of water and take care of yourself. Get plenty of exercise and fresh air and at least 7 or 8 hours of sleep a night. Your hair will also be thicker and shinier if your healthy, just generally.

  • Just like Brandi said, prenatal vitamins. They have every thing you need for healthy hair and nails. You can buy them in the vitamin section at your local store or pharmacy.

  • I would talk to your doctor.. your nail condition is due to an under lying health condition... at the very least it's because of a poor diet..

  • Prenatal vitamins and be sure to get lots of protein in your diet. Also try Nailtique - it's like a clear nail polish and its treats your nails with extra protein and actually works quite well for most women.
