So I've been vegan for a year, and at first my nails were great. Growing fast and very strong. Now, they are terrible! Weak, bendy, and brittle. Some are healthy but some aren't (it's about half and half.) I feel like I get enough protein, but I'm still kinda iffy on iron. I get my protein every day from lots of nuts, soy, whole grains, and beans (and other foods since nearly everything has at least a little protein) so I don't think protein should be a problem.

I do know that people put bad hair and weak nails together, but my hair is great; it doesn't fall out and it's strong and thick and grows very fast, so my hair isn't a problem at all. My nails are just very bad! Also, my mom has very bad nails as well. Could part of it be hereditary?

Please help me!

Ok, thanks! I will definitely try fitday.com to see if I'm getting enough. But yeah, my mom's always had terrible nails. I really want to have long nails (unlike hers) because I like painting them :p
