Gloss vs full henna/indigo

I've tried a couple glosses and I'm not getting quite the right coverage on my grey.  I am trying to get the guts to do a full henna/indigo, what I would like to know is how different will the colour be with a full application compared to what I have achieved from the gloss?  Will it just be deeper and darker?

Thanks!

Yes, it will be deeper and darker. The color you get = your starting color + however much dye uptake you get. With a weak gloss, you won't get much dye uptake. With a strong gloss you get more, and so on.

For example, a weak henna gloss will give you orangey copper highlights on light brown hair. Full strength henna paste will give you auburn/red.

 Thanks for the info - perhaps I'll try a stronger gloss?
