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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
