It shouldn’t be to long. Last time I spoke to the harvester he said he was going out collecting again and that was a few weeks ago. He should be drying it now. It does take several forays though to get enough to be worth sending, but am hoping he will notify me soon, that a box is on its way. We do have al alternative to the seaweed hair conditioner – the marshmallow root which I haven found very good for adding body and wave to the hair if that is any help in the meantime.
