    I have medium thickness hair and weak nails. My nails are soft and bend easily. I would say my hair is much stronger!

    My nails are always ragged. But I think it also is an occupational thing. My job isn't conducive to nail growth. If I could hand the box-handling and lifting and stockroom to someone else and never touch it, then maybe I would actually grow decent nails. But since that isn't happening at my job anytime soon, short raggy nails it is.

    My hair is fine, but healthy, with an average growth rate. My nails usually grow slowly, and are very weak - they just peel off. Some of that may be that I take better care of my hair than my hands. I can tie my hair up and out of the way of damage; my hands are usually being plunged into it.

    My hair is fine and fragile; I frequently use my nails as tools when I can't find a screwdriver. My hair grows at an average rate (0.5 inch a month, more or less), and my nails grow insanely fast.

    I have very thin, brittle nails, but they grow fairly fast. My hair averages about 5/8" growth a month. My hair is average thickness. If my hair was as brittle as my nails, I would be bald.
    My routine has changed since starting to use Rogaine regularly to try to regain some thickness. I still cleanse every other day, but I use T/Sal shampoo, followed by my beloved Suave Wild Cherry conditioner. A vinegar rinse and catnip leave in follow.

    My hair and nails grow about medium and seem to be fairly strong.

    I guess I'm lucky... thick hair and (almost) unbreakable nails. I've never had a nail break completely off before, and even chips/splits are pretty rare. LOL I've even caused significant damage to a fingernail clipper trying to trim them... I don't have a nail care regimen or anything, but I never paint them and always moisturize them whenever I moisturize my hands.

    My hair grows quite medium quickly, and I suppose my nails do too, even though I'm sure I don't know how fast nails usually grow. I have to cut them once a week or so at least (I detest having long nails). I'm not really sure how strong they are, but they're not brittle, and never break. However, they're quite soft. If they get some length to them, I can bend them over very easily. I don't really know what that means :P
    But they don't break

    I have slow, thin and fine hair. My nails are however the complete opposite; thick, strong and grow like weed. I cut them one day, next week they're claws again. I wish it was the other way!
    Love long hair, but not so fond of long nails...

    All my life I have had happy thick hair and short, weak nails. But now, after starting to take vitamins for hair, my nails AND hair are strong!
