The nail plate is made up of several layers of compacted dead cells called keratin which is a fibrous, structural protein. This is also the main protein found in hair. It may be hard to believe that your nails and hair are dead, but put it this way. If they were alive, you would scream in pain when you cut them! The nails grow from the nail root, which is under the cuticle area.
