9. Tomatoes

tomatoes juice

Tomatoes contain a high amount of biotin that aids nail growth as well as makes them thick and shiny. Plus, tomatoes have vitamins A and C that are essential for healthy nails and skin.

  1. Mix 1/2 cup of tomato juice and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl.
  2. Soak your nails in this solution for 10 minutes.
  3. Do this once daily until you get the desired results.

10. Protein

protein foods


Nails are made up of keratin, a protein. By adding more protein to your diet, you can promote nail growth. Lack of protein can cause white spots on your nails and make them weak.

  • Eat lean poultry, fish, beef and pork, as well as eggs to increase your protein intake.
  • Legumes, nuts, seeds, spinach and green vegetables also have protein. These are a good option for vegetarians.
  • You can also drink protein shakes or add protein powder to a glass of milk. Consult your doctor before taking any protein supplements.

Additional Tips

  • Avoid exposing your nails to harsh chemicals, including cleaning products. When working or cleaning, wear gloves to protect your nails from damage.
  • To help prevent fungal infections from invading your nails, keep your nails and cuticles clean and dry. If you have a nail infection, get it treated immediately.
  • Avoid biting your nails or picking at hangnails. Avoid scratching your nails as it can make them weak.
  • Eat a healthy diet for healthy and strong nails. Increase your intake of green tea as it will improve the quality of your nails.
  • Regularly trim and cut your nails to make them grow faster. Opt for frequent manicures to stimulate faster nail growth.
  • Apply petroleum jelly on your nails and hands before going to bed to keep them moisturized.
  • Avoid using nail polish that contains formaldehyde, toluene or sulfonamide.
  • Expose your nails to early morning sunlight to help your body create the vitamin D that your nails need to grow faster.
  • Do some exercises daily to have good blood circulation, which will help your nails grow faster.
  • You can also take multi-vitamins to speed up nail growth.

  1. Do NOT heat anything in the microwave. This will kill all the goodness in the coconut oil, olive oil, lemon etc. Slowly warm on the stovetop. 🙂

  2. I absolutely love this post especially the one about the biotin. This will be beneficial for my daughter Amber she is 13 and suffers from severe nail biting. I have a jar of biotin pills in my meds cabinet and since I dont use them at all i could use the gel pill and squeeze the gel out and apply it into a squeeze tube so that she can learn to use them everyday. The Biotin and the garlic together on her nails will surely prevent her from biting her nails and the biotin will make it have a nice glossy finish and make her nails grow even faster since she wont be biting her nails. Hopefully this will work. Thank you cuoihoi.info for this tip…

  3. Wow thanks so much! This was literally the only website that had information on how to grow nails without either it being some chemical solution, or some complex salon treatment. Literally! But one question, can i do the olive oil treatment without the use of the cotton gloves? Thanks.

    1. Another way is to mix an egg white and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and massage for 5-10 mins before bed.

  4. One more remedy which can be used is apply a mixture of olive oil and milk( keep the ratio 1:2 tbs). Keep this mixture in a bowl and now warm it in oven,apply this warm mixture using cotton pad on your nails every night and let it stay overnight. In the morning wash off and get nourished and shiny nails. Repeat it 2-3 times a week to get healthy and strong nails. I am doing this and I can tell the results are amazing.

      1. ur probably confused on it but the nail will absourb the mixture adn it will stay on overnight cuz u r applying the mixture on not soaking and then in the morning u wash it off. hope this helps u . 🙂

  5. Im ten and my aunt is having a wedding in five weeks and i was biting my nails but just stopped. Anyway my nails are longer but what helped is coconut oil, salt, and water. Just add as much as you want and soak your nails in it for about 5 minutes and it really helps. (My b-day is a day before th the wedding so im pretty much 11.)

      1. I changed my name and i started biting them again before, but im guessing it would have been about 4 weeks. Now i dont bite them (im twelve now) and the sweet almond oil thing works amazing. Massage into your nails once or twice a day for however long you want.

    1. Such a Dear Post Rmj….. Very Thoughtful Young Lady! Hope You kept it up and Enjoyed Your Big Event!!!! ………Cool

  6. wow its brillent…idea to increases the nails.just I have joint the airhostes accadamy so my grooming is incomplete because of my nails because my nails have not grow and its very week BT now I am tried this tips and follow it …thankxx..

  7. I have heard that if you soak your nails in olive oil for 1 hour, then take them out, your nails will grow. Is this true?

    1. yeah it is true they will still grow, but you will get better results when you rub your cuticles.

  8. I don’t believe in soaks and they never really worked for me but however I feel that olive oil is very effective I am 11 years old and all my life I have been a nail biter but I resent ly disided to stop and grow out my nails. Through out the day I apply thick hand cream and thoroughly massage my nails and finger tips. When I am in a rush I use pink armor nail gel a protective clear polish with a slight tint of pink I find this treatment very effective and I picked it up at my local pharmacy

  9. I am quite young and I really want to grow my nails especially for holiday , so I made a little experiment, people say water salt and coconut juice works and so does soaking your nails in oil. So I went and got a pot and put 4 tea spoons of salt in and a bit of water then I went and got some oil and put 2 tea spoons of that in, I mixed this all together until the salt devolved then I put my nails in and let them soak for about ten mins . This worked for me. After dab youtpr hands dry and then but hand lotion on them . X

  10. I can’t wait to try the orange juice method for my friend.
    The lemon one worked
    for me in 2 days my nails were longer than my mom but I really never bite my nails.

  11. I just got my nails painted professionally today and the lady cut the too short. They are still polished and the colour looks great! Is it ok to do the olive oil massage rubbing method still? Or will it not work? Thanks!

  12. Very nice tips..but orange one is my tried and tested.. my nails were all bitten like hell..i have been bitting my nails since I was a kid..and now my nails are all grown up…all because of ornge juice.. I do recommand all of you to use orange juice it really works..thanks

  13. Guys, rubbing sweet almond oil on your nails is great. My nails were bitten and down to the quick (im guessing, maybe alittle longer, but the tiniest bit…) and now, two-three months later, coming off the top of my fingers. Thats really slow i know but it helped so much. I can post the link to the video where I found it if youll want.

  14. Good idea, Hope this will work for me as well. I have very short nails because of my nail biting habits. I am going to try this. Thanks

  15. This is great! I have short nails that tend to break when they grow out, I’ve been using store -bought mail strengthener, but I want to go more natural. Would you suggest the olive oil or coconut oil first for overnight? Do i need real cotton gloves, or can I use like a cheap pair from Walmart for this? Also, the coconut oil mixture, do I just soak then rinse, or do I massage too?

  16. Hi, I need a help. I am a woman who has been suffering from brittle nails for almost many years now. I have tried all tricks in the trade and nothing seems to be working. I was advised to be on a calcium rich diet and also take vitamin D supplements to help overcome the problem. However the problem never really got any better and over the past years it has been only getting worse. Frankly speaking, is there any which can be done to get my nails back to my original shape?
