First things first, If you wanna grow long, strong nails you must take care of them! In other words, groom them if you want them to bloom. It’s important to keep your nails/cuticles moisturized to keep them strong which stops breakage from happening, as well as keeping the cuticles from peeling. I do this by applying coconut oil on my cuticles/nails. It’s important that your cuticles are hydrated because the cuticles are what gives your nails the nutrients/protection it needs to grow, so avoid cutting away your cuticles. They play a major role in healthy nail growth!
Another thing is soap, try to stay away from toxic soaps for hand washing/washing dishes. Most soaps dry out your nails and weakens them, which of course means breakage! Filing is also a main key for nail growth. “But how?” you may ask (like with hair growth, trimming stops split ends from splitting all the way up the hair shaft). Nail filing fixes the problem of snagging nails and stops the whole nail from tearing.
By doing all of this, I’ve noticed that my nails definitely grow at a faster rate and I’m loving it because every girl loves long nails of course! While keeping my nails/cuticles moisturized with coconut oil, I’ve also noticed that my nails don’t peel as much. That’s something that I really like to acknowledge because I hate when my hair gets caught in a peeling/snagging nail (which is something I mentioned in a previous post)! So lets go groom those claws, Beauties! I hope I’ve been helpful, please check back later for more nail tips.
