a couple of months.
probably my most awkward dread-stage so far hah.
i dyed them slightly red, and i had quite a few (that you mostly can't see) wrapped with hemp to fix some bumps. and i combined some by clockwise rubbing at the roots.
around now is when they stopped shrinking and actually started growing.
i used some bright red henna but it had basically no effect, except on my bangs that i had combed out recently.
