Default What grows faster: your nails or hair

Hello fellow hair growers! What grows faster for you, your hair or nails? My nails seem to grow faster than my hair, and I have to trim them every week or two because I like to keep them at a medium length.

Hey Brownie ...wassup girl?!?!
My hair has always grown faster than my finger nails (so it seemed), however lately ever since beginning my vit regime, my nails have taken off...

A few wks ago I purchased some lil fake ones, but I have not had the chance to wear them because my natural nails have grown in soooo beautifully. I have all kindza "artsy", crafty designs on them... they look much better than the fake one's i bought ... yipppppeeee, i have finger nails to show off this summer .

Always good to hear from you, Peachtree. I'm happy to hear that your nails have taken flight. I think it's funny that so many people spend oodles of money getting their nails done. All they have to do is pop a vitamin, or eat better (had to add the last part), and the nails will grow.

My nails have always grown faster. I'm known for having long nails, hair is another story. But I'm putting more effort into the hair than ever before, so you never know.

My nails grow much faster than my hair. Seems like I am cutting them all of the time to keep from scratching everyone.

Hey All,

Do you think that they may grow at the same rate but because nail growth is more visible and easily identifiable, we tend to think that they(nails) grow faster than our hair? (Just curious)

I noticed that when I break a nail, it grows back really fast but that the other nails seemingly remain the same length. Anyone else experience this?

I'd say that my hair and nails grow about the same rate. I tend to notice my nail growth more because I don't really measure my new growth.

I would have to say my nails and I have experienced what you speak of but cannot think of the reasoning.

I've heard that people who bite their nails have nails that grow very fast because they are constantly stimulating them. Of course, they still never have long nails because they just bite them off again, but the actual rate of growth is much faster.
