Did you mix with an acidic liquid and then wait for dye release? Did you check for dye release by testing a spot on your hand? If you added oils or other stuff to the mix, that could also affect dye uptake. Did you apply to dirty or shampoo'd hair? (I'd clarify before henna, although it's not absolutely necessary.)
