Final boss tips?

This thread relates specifically to a no-shops run, so attack is at its weakest and the player has ten blocks of health only. Also, playing on easy.

Right, I can get through the first two forms easily without losing any health. Well, the second kind of depends on what she throws out, but 90% of the time I'll get through it unscathed.

The third form, though, I just can't do at all. Most of her attacks I can avoid, of which I think there are four. One is like a wave that goes up and down, and you can stand underneath. One is two circling attacks with huge gaps to jump through. One is a head that hovers above and shoots out heads (which can be tricky to avoid at times). For the most part, I'll avoid all those.

Then she has another, though, where she just has a huge mass of heads that shoot right at you and as far as I can tell, there are no gaps to jump through. It's too tall to jump over. How do you avoid this? Since I'm so weak I have to hit her 12-15 times at least which means I'm spending most of the battle without Hellebore (so no sword, no double-jump) and I just don't see how to avoid the attack. Having such a small amount of health means a few of these and a minor slip-up on other attacks can wipe me out, and the battle lasts forever because Hellebore does basically no damage at all so she always gets me eventually.

Anyone got any advice?

At the moment it feels like I just have to wait for the lucky run where she doesn't send that attack out much, but the first two forms take so long between them that it's kinda boring to do it over and over again.
