Adorable haircut Mishepard!

A buxus gloss can be done by mixing buxus directly into conditioner (like 1 Tbsp per cup, something like that) and using it immediately.  You can also mix buxus with warm water and then add that paste to the conditioner. I would cover it while it's on. A strong gloss (like 2 or 3 Tbsp per cup) left on for 15-20 minutes should definitely make your hair browner, while a weaker one would have a milder effect.

How strong you make it and how long you leave it on is up to you. Obviously stronger and/or longer makes the color browner and darker.

Buxus also doesn't shine the hair like henna does, and might actually dull a bit of the henna shine; just thought I'd mention that. The buxus color tends to fade about 50% in 3 weeks.

Flaxseed gel and xanthan gel are other possible bases for your gloss, if you don't want to use conditioner.

mishepard,
LOVE your hair!  Just wondering how the upkeep has been with the roots, etc... What ratio of henna/buxus did you use?
