4 Natural Treatments to Accelerate Nail Growth

Our nails grow with about 3 mm per month. A nail completely lost recovers within 4-6 months. Nails grow faster in summer, or during pregnancy. To help nails grow faster and healthier, you can use one of the following natural treatments:

  1. Treatment with cayenne pepper

Boil 10 tablespoons of water with a tablespoon of oil or glycerine and half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper. After the solution has cooled, apply it to the nail and allow to act for 15-20 minutes, then rins with warm water. This treatment should be performed once a month.

  1. Treatment with lavender oil

Another natural treatment for nail accelerating is the mixture made with 2 teaspoons of olive oil and six drops of lavender oil. Apply it on the nails, leave for 5-10 minutes and then remove with lukewarm water. This treatment can be applied 2-3 times a week.

  1. Olive oil

If your nails break easily or fall off, you must avoid acetone or formaldehyde-containing compounds and the chemicals from cleaning products. Once or twice a week is recommended to keep your nails in extra virgin olive oil for 10 minutes and in the end massage also the cuticles with this oil.

  1. Treatment with honey

Mix the following ingredients: 2 egg yolks, 3 tablespoons of milk and a spoonful of honey. Keep your nails in this mixture for 15 minutes. Egg proteins and calcium from milk helps strengthen the nails.

Tips: To stimulate nail growth, the diet is also very important. That’s why you should not miss:

– Food sources of iron: meat, liver, nuts, candied fruits, green leafy vegetables (spinach, parsley).

Zinc (zinc deficiency can cause small stains and white spots on the nails) can be found in: nuts, parsnip roots, celery, garlic, whole grains, chicken or turkey, seafood.
