In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make your nails grow overnight.

If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Does garlic help nail growth?”, the answer is yes!

I’ll show you how to use garlic for nail growth so you can grow your nails fast and strong. Let’s get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Garlic

1. Benefits of garlic for nail growth

The benefits of garlic for nails are numerous.

Garlic is rich in selenium, a natural mineral that you can find present in multiple foods. This mineral is known to help promote nail growth.

Garlic is also a natural antioxidant that helps strengthen weak and brittle nails and keeps your nail bed healthy.

2. How to use garlic for nail growth

To start, peel a clove of garlic and then slice the garlic clove in half.

Thoroughly rub half of the sliced garlic clove over your fingernails, making sure to cover the entire surface of your nail bed and on your cuticles.

Do this technique every night and rinse off the stickiness in the morning. 

Alternatively, you could turn your garlic into garlic oil and use it to create a nail mask.

Garlic oil is generally less pungent than using a raw piece of garlic, making it a better-smelling alternative if you decide to do this treatment during the day and need to go out somewhere.

Garlic oil can be made easily by saute-ing chopped or minced garlic in olive oil. Afterward, strain the oil into a container of your choice and apply using a clean nail polish brush.

Others have placed minced garlic in clear nail polish and used that as an alternative treatment as well.

Massaging garlic, whether in its base and raw form or as an oil, will stimulate your blood flow and help deliver nutrients from your bloodstream to your nails.
