1. The shorter, the better
When growing your nails out, it is very important to keep them trimmed. I know, I know, making the switch from trendy coffin nails to stubs may be tough, but during the first few weeks your nails probably won’t be strong enough to keep their length without tearing.
2. Try a hand massage
Focus on the cuticle with treatments like Vitamin E, olive, and coconut oil. Not only will each remedy leave your hands softer than a baby’s bum, they’ll also feed your cuticles the nutrients needed to promote healthy nail growth.
3. Give them a bath
There are many different soaking methods that provide nails the goods they need to grow nice and healthy. It might sound weird, but a dip in orange juice, olive oil, milk, or even garlic oil for about 10-15 minutes a few days each week will do the trick.
4. Purchase a nail treatment
Most beauty or drug stores have a wide selection of polish treatments you can use to help strengthen and grow recovering nails.
5. Head to a professional
Knowing how to pamper yourself at-home is key, but splurging and seeing a manicurist does have health benefits! (My latest excuse.) The manicure process stimulates nail growth and always leaves them in better condition. If you prefer to save the cash, simply follow the steps above on a consistent basis.
