More than a healthy treat, blueberries offer us curlies benefits that go beyond nutritional value. CURLS Founder Mahisha Dellinger shares the benefits of blueberry extract for hair growth in this CVS Pharmacy sponsored post.

"We know that blueberries are a superfood for your body, but did you know that they are also a superfood for your hair," Mahisha Dellinger explained when asked about the latest ingredient in her new  Blueberry Bliss hair care collection , "Blueberry Extract is clinically proven to prevent breakage ,
repair damage , and encourage hair growth ."

The proanthocyanidins, aka plant chemicals, in blueberries make them super powerful!

These plant chemicals stimulate hair follicles which can facilitate hair growth. In addition to this remarkable natural stimulant, blueberries have antioxidant benefits and flood your hair and skin with Vitamins A, B5, C, and E.

Yes, you can ingest blueberries for healthy hair growth, but there's an easier way to get your natural, textured curls in prime shape. It starts with the new CURLS Blueberry Bliss collection. Simply follow this recommended maintenance and styling routine from Mahisha Dellinger that she uses regularly:

"After I wash and condition with the Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Wash & Mask, I apply the Curl Control Jelly. I also use the Hair Growth Oil to seal in the moisture using the LOC method."

This combination will give you ravishing results, no matter your curl pattern or texture type.

Seriously - I tried this system on my hair!

The hair wash was incredibly gentle on my scalp which I really appreciate in a cleanser. As an avid user of the styling cream, I can assure you that a little of this blueberry concoction goes a long way for my low porosity 4C curls. And don't get me started on the scent... yes, I smelled and felt like the name of the collection: Blueberry Bliss!

What I love the most about this new collection is that it has items for every texture type, has a frizz control formulation, and will actually stimulate hair follicles which will lead to hair growth. Phenomenal? Most definitely!
