Let’s start with the facts: long, healthy nails are in, and that trend isn’t going anywhere. And why should it? It’s amazing that something as small as the state of your nails can do wonders for your appearance and confidence. And long nails give you so many options to play with! Round or square? Manicured or natural? Polish color, decal, sparkles, rhinestones--everywhere from Etsy to your local drugstore gives you dozens of options to choose from.
The only requirement is long nails.
But, that poses a problem for some. Not everyone’s nails grow fast enough or long enough. Others still have brittle nails that easily break the minute they extend past the tip of the finger. It can be frustrating, after all, you use your hands so often each day that it’s impossible they’d go unnoticed. Just as healthy nails can do wonders for self-confidence, broken or stubby nails can be a source of frustration. After all, you can’t control the way your nails grow, right? It’s just genetics… right?
Enter Mad Growth’s Nail Growth Serum, your one-stop solution for slow-growing nails (and at only $12). Its simple mix of Castor Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Tea Tree Oil, and Jojoba Oil will put your nail struggles in the past tense.
To understand how, let’s go to the root of the problem.
As mentioned before, the main factor in nail quality is genetics, as is most everything about our appearance. Unfair? Yes, but what in life isn’t? But, where there’s a problem, there’s someone to fix it, and, luckily, we’ve got extensive research on the subject.
On average, nails grow about a tenth of a millimeter a day. The more the area is used, the faster they grow: this is why toenails grow slower than fingernails, and the dominant hand’s nails grow faster than the other. Age is also a factor, as well as the cocktail of hormones your body releases, and the speed of your blood flow. Certain chronic conditions can also slow nail growth. Interestingly, clipping your nails regularly actually makes the nails grow faster, too.
So, what can we do to increase nail growth?
In order to keep your nails healthy and strong, you’ve got to take care of them. Clipping them at least once a week will help, as is making sure to use water-based or non-toxic nail polish. These things will promote natural nail growth and preserve the quality of the nails. Keeping the nails as dry as possible also helps, so try to wear gloves when washing the dishes. But, these things do little to help your nails if they’re naturally slower or more brittle.
Of all the factors mentioned before, the main source of nail quality is the natural hormones your body releases. This is determined by genetics, and is extremely unlikely to change anytime soon. So, we’ve got to look elsewhere for a solution.
If it’s impossible to change the amount of hormones naturally released in the body, then the best solution is to find an outside source that can mimic the same effects. We need to speed up nail growth and strengthen brittle nails. Two problems. One solution.
Enter Vitamin E, the main ingredient in Mad Growth’s Nail Growth Serum. It’s an antioxidant, which means that it prevents a harmful kind of oxygen molecule called “free radicals” from doing damage to the body. This does two things for the nails: it prevents microscopic tears in the nails, which makes them stronger and harder to break, and it has moisturizing properties to the nail-bed, which prevents the yellowing of nails. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, which increases blood circulation to the nails and speeds up nail growth.
The castor, tea tree, and jojoba oil found in the Nail Growth Serum also promotes these same three effects, leading to the perfect solution to gorgeous, healthy nails.
Come Through, Growth!
