Nails are living or non living 

Asked by sapkalsahil07 | 21st Jan, 2021, 10:10: AM

Expert Answer:

Nails are made of keratin, which is a protein made of dead cells. So, technically, nails are dead or non-living.

On the other hand, the base of the nails (nail bed) and the hair roots are made up of living cells, which is the reason for their growth.
