So after a long battle I lost a toenail last night.
Everything ive been reading about caring for the toe is to put an anti fungal as a preventive and Take supplements to help it grow out. Then wait. 9-12 months!!
Since i obviously need another excuse to use my Amazon prime I was looking for the bees favorite supplements for hair and nail growth. Any tips?

Biotin 5000 mcg makes my nails grow like crazy.

EDubbs: I take half a pill of biotin a night (although TBH I often forget so it’s probably less than that). I almost think my hair/nails grow TOO fast (my manis start looking grown out so quickly and my hair’s been growing an inch a month) so I guess it works.
I took a full biotin pill a day for awhile but it was causing some nasty breakouts so that’s why I ended up cutting them in half to lower the dosage.
ETA: Sorry to hear you lost the toenail battle!

Viviscal for hair. It’s like $30/month and you have to be on it for 6+ months to see results.
I stay away from Biotin. It gave me the most gross pimples.

+1 to Viviscal. Biotin made me grow hair in places I had never had hair before….not cute.

Toenails are for sissies.
^ Popular runner T-shirt slogan. Yes, I have one. 🙂
Toenails can definitely take 9-12mos to grow back. It’s a bummer but it is what it is. I agree with the above suggestions but would also point you to some great information found in Runner’s World magazine and other sports journals.

Viviscal for sure…..I didn’t follow the package instructions, just started taking one a day and my hair is crazy thick and nails are hard and grow fast. I’ve actually cut back to one pill every other day now.
