So many curly girls long to have Rapunzel-like length, but struggle to achieve their length goals. Growing out curls can seem like a long, tedious process, especially it feels like you don't see any improvement. There are a few things you can do to help improve your curl growth, including adopting a curl growth diet.

These foods are perfect for encouraging curl growth because they stimulate blood circulation, as well as encourage healthy scalps.


Consider adding some Vitamin C to your diet to help manage extra cholesterol. If your blood is gunked up, it'll be hard for it to circulate effectively. Add oranges, tangerines, and grapefruits to your shopping list.

Dark Chocolate:

Enjoy this sweet treat in moderation but still reap the benefits. The flavonoids will help control your blood pressure, which will increase natural blood flow to your scalp.


Dark greens are hugely important to a healthy diet and healthy curl growth. Broccoli is loaded with vitamins and oils that are deposited on your curl's follicle to help make it stronger and therefore more resistant to breakage. The natural oils give curls a boost of shine.

Sunflower Seeds:

These aren't just for ball games! These tiny seeds made a great addition to your salad and pack a powerful punch. They're loaded with vitamin E and the antioxidants your curls need to stay healthy. They can also help reduce the risk of blood clots.


This spice has been getting a lot of recognition lately for its invigorating benefits. It helps manage the formation of blood clots and encourages healthy blood flow and circulation.

Cayenne Pepper:

This is another spice that's having a serious moment. You've heard of it being used in different cleanses, but it works great to help facilitate natural hair growth. Cayenne pepper is loaded with  capsaicin, which helps digestion as well as circulation.
