Having long strong, fast growing nails is the ideal for many women. Too often nails break easily and then it seems to take forever to get them back to the length of the others, even when you file down the rest of the nails to help.
One sure cure for this that has been proven to work many times is a fresh orange juice and crushed garlic soak, followed by washing the hands and then soaking in olive oil.
Garlic is one of the best natural healing agents, but it’s also great for nails. Garlic is high in selenium. When you’re body lacks selenium, you tend to have weaker nails.
Garlic contains many different phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals and has strong antioxidant benefits to promote cell health. It has antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties, too.
It’s one of the richest sources of calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, zinc and manganese. Manganese is necessary to create the superoxide dismutase, an antioxidant enzyme. It also prevents inflammation and contains vitamin C to fight infection.
③ Olive Oil
The final step, the olive oil soak, helps soften and moisturize the skin around the nails and nails. It penetrates deeply into the skin and nails to provide nourishing vitamin E while improving blood flow that helps bring nutrients and oxygen to the nails to promote growth as it repairs cells and adds strength.
Olive oil keeps your cuticles soft as it moisturizes the nails, cuticles, and surrounding skin. The extra moisture adds strength and prevents peeling brittle nails that break easily.
② Grab one clove of garlic and chop/crush it into small pieces. Place the crushed garlic into the orange juice and mix together. Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes before soaking your nails.
③ Soak your nails in the orange/garlic mixture and let it sit for about 15 minutes. One hand at a time.
④ After the orange / garlic soak, pour some olive oil in a small glass container and soak your nails once again in the olive oil. Let your nails sit for aprroximately 10-15 minutes and wipe it dry.
⑤ Do this 2 to 3x a week and you should see great results.
