Even if you don't cut your nails, they will eventually break as they can only grow so long. Your hair doesn't "break". Of course you brush it, and hairs come out, but allowing your kes to grow is just accepting GuruJi's hukam.

Combing hair, cutting nails, and rubbing our skin while having bath these all actions we do for one reason which is removing dead particals from your body to keep it clean and healthy. But, we never cut or remove any part of our body which is alive, because we feel pain, hairs are alive too but we only cut them off pain lessly because they do not have nurves. So comb your hair to remove dead hairs, and cut your nails to remove dead nails.
