T here is more to making henna than simply adding water to the powder. Many people who use henna regularly recommend that you had some moisturizing ingredients whether it be oils or conditioners. If you use henna for colour  then you need to let it sit so that the dye can be released, most people let it sit over  night and then apply the next day. The average time they leave it on is 3-4 hours but you can do less.

Examples of what people have used are: apple cider vinegar, hair cholesteral,honey etc.

Some times henna is done not for the colour but just for the moisturzing and strengthening properties, a person may do what is called a henna gloss.
