Rub oil into the nail and cuticles several times a day. In a week you will see how much this tool has helped your nails.

Herbal decoction will help you. All herbs are very easy to collect on your own, in the forest, or buy ready-made in a pharmacy. Boil water in a small saucepan, add burdock leaf, chamomile and string. The herb should be infused in hot water for 40-60 minutes. This procedure will help your hands become smooth and silky, and your nails will be harder. Treat your hands 2 times a week.

You can not use other means of protection, and it is especially contraindicated to apply varnish.
You can buy vitamin E capsules at the pharmacy. It is also ideal for accelerating nail growth. Carefully pierce the capsule with a needle, rub the oil with your fingers into the nail. It is best to apply oil on the nail at night.
Medicine and cosmetology
In cosmetic centers, you can be offered one of the latest technologies to accelerate nail growth – modern paraffin therapy for hands and nails. Under hot paraffin, the skin of the hands and the nails themselves begin to sweat profusely, and toxins are released with sweat (they are the ones that slow down the growth of nails). Also, this technology smoothes the skin of the hands, eliminating visible wrinkles, restores the natural color of the skin. Paraffin will also help heal wounds, cuts, burrs on the hands, and most importantly, restore the nail plate after an unsuccessful nail extension. All the nutrients contained in natural wax instantly penetrate into the plate, enriching it not only from the outside, but also from the inside.
Massage. Before a massage session, nails should not be varnished or nail polish remover should be used. Clean nail plates are massaged with a special brush using various oils (peach, lavender, tea rose, thuja oil). Finally, cover your nails and hands with a nourishing cream.
SPA procedures. Modern women prefer to trust only professionals. The SPA program is enriched with minerals, aroma oils, medicinal substances. The program includes therapeutic masks of colored clay, almond oil, jojoba, rose petals, rosemary, cactus, coconut oil. These substances will help your nails absorb all the vitamins as quickly as possible.
Take care of your hands and nails. Try to expose them to various chemicals as little as possible. Try different methods of treatment, experiment, protect.
