The first step to growing your nails will be to have a healthy diet. All your efforts will be futile if your body doesn’t produce the right amount of vitamins and minerals to aid growth. Also, prevention is the good path to follow. So when using harsh products, ensure you protect your hand with gloves.

Garlic is a good natural ingredient to grow your nails. There are many ways to apply it but the simplest is by crushing enough garlic cloves to cover your nails. Place the pastes on your nails and leave for about ten minutes. Aside from helping your nails grow, they are perfect for prevention of bacteria and improving circulation. Moreover, the smell of the garlic will definitely stop you from biting your nails.

Another remedy will be to crush a few garlic cloves and boil them in about a cup of water. When it becomes cool, add a little lemon juice and mix everything. Finally, pour into an empty nail polish bottle and apply every day.

Finally, the last method is mixing your nail polish with crushed garlic. Apply this every week on your nails and you will see great result in a few weeks. Most people run away from this regimen because of the smell of garlic. If you have no problem with that then these ways are recommended (just spray a lot of perfume and you are good to go!)
