The primary structural component of hair and nail is keratin, a protein hardened with sulphur. Hair grows from hair follicles where cells push up forward new keratin which changes to hard keratin fibers inside the hair. Biotin, belonging to vitamin B group, activates hair follicle cells to produce more keratin. Biotin as well as zinc contribute to the maintenance of normal hair.
Nail plate is composed of three keratin layers with lipids between the layers. Nail lunula, the white moon-shaped area is soft keratin, which is hardened to tough keratin in nail plate. Zinc contributes also to the maintenance of normal nails.
