Often, nails, and at the same time hair, lose their former beauty and attractiveness. They become dull and brittle, and grow slowly. And it's not just inadequate care, the ecology is also to blame. The modern industry offers a huge arsenal of methods for solving this problem.
How to speed up nail growth
Experts have proven that, on average, a person's nails grow by 3 mm per month. However, it is in your power to accelerate their growth. To do this, you must adhere to some rules.
The amount of vitamins you consume indicates the health of your nails. In addition to taking vitamin and mineral complexes, you must balance your diet. Please note that your diet should contain fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
Remember that nails need to be treated in a complex. Therefore, in addition to a balanced diet, you should regularly do manicure, strengthen the nail plate with various masks, and wear gloves when applying chemicals.
To accelerate the growth of nails, make baths with iodine and table salt. To do this, dissolve a tablespoon of salt in 500 ml of warm water, add 3 drops of iodine. Dip in a container with the contents of your hands for 15 minutes. After the procedure, be sure to lubricate the skin with a nourishing cream. You can also activate the growth of nails through the iodine mesh. Apply it to your nails with a cotton swab. This procedure must be done at least 4 times a week.

Hair, like nails, needs careful maintenance. Their appearance also depends on nutrition. If you do not consume enough vitamin C, your hair will begin to fall out and become brittle. Therefore, eat fresh vegetables (especially green ones), fruits, cereals, nuts, liver, fish.
