Hold the nail using your other hand near its head to give your fingers leeway.

When extracting the nail, slide the claw of the hammer onto the nail then place any kind of wood scrap under the hammer to add more leverage. Then lift the hammer until the nail is fully removed. Make sure to grip the handle of the hammer when extracting nails.
