Olive Oil

The rich vitamin E content of olive oil helps in keeping the nails healthy and well moisturized. The regular use of this remedy also helps in improving the blood circulation to the nails and simulates the growth of stronger and beautiful nails. The remedy should be used every day and preferably before going to bed for getting the best results.

The remedy requires you to heat a small quantity of olive oil until it is lukewarm and then massage it gently into the nails and the cuticles for around five minutes. An alternative option is to soak the fingernails in the lukewarm oil for about 15-20 minutes. Cover the hands with gloves after they have been massaged or soaked to allow the olive oil to get absorbed into the skin and also to avoid staining.

Coconut Oil

The high content of saturated fat present in coconut oil proves extremely beneficial for nourishing weak and brittle nails. It also improves the blood circulation around the nails besides helping in keeping various fungal infections at bay. These factors combine to make coconut oil a perfect choice for people seeking a natural solution for faster and stronger nail growth besides preventing their breakage.

You need to heat some coconut oil until it is lukewarm before applying it on and around each nail. Then gently massage the oil into the nails and the surrounding skin for at least five minutes. You can also soak the nails in the lukewarm oil for around 15 -20 minutes. After application of either method, it is advisable to keep the hands covered with gloves for better absorption of the oil. The remedy can be applied 3-4 times a day to get faster results.

Egg Shells

Egg shells are a rich source of proteins, iron, calcium and various other minerals that play a key role in ensuring strong nail growth. These shells are also rich in vitamin D, B 12 and Biotin, with the latter known to work wonders for strengthening the nails and making them less brittle. The remedy should be followed for at least a month to get the best results in the form of visibly stronger and beautiful nail growth.

This remedy involves cleaning and crushing the egg shells before blending them with almonds and flax seeds in a blender. The powder thus obtained should be stored in an airtight container and one teaspoon of this powder should be consumed with warm milk each morning. This is one of the most effective home remedies to ensure healthy and strong nails.

Lemon Juice

The rich antioxidant and vitamin C content of lemons helps in enhancing nail growth in a natural manner. In fact, the use of lemon juice for ridding the nails of their yellow tinge and making them shine is fairly common. The use of lemon juice is also known to be highly effective in making the nails less brittle and healthier. The remedy can be implemented 2-3 times a week without the fear of any harmful side effects.

You need to mix 1 table spoon of lemon juice with 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a bow before slightly heating the mixture. Then soak the nails in this concoction for about 10-15 minutes or you can apply a coat of this warm mixture on your nails using a nail paint brush. An alternate method is to rub a slice or peel of lemon on the nails for 5-10 minutes. Once done wash the nails with lukewarm water and apply a good moisturizer. Be sure to avoid applying the lemon juice on any cuts around the nails as it will cause stinging.
