Any way to make henna darker after taking paste off?

 Okay, So Every sunday I've been doing a new henna design in commemoration  of the new season of "Superjail!" my favorite TV show. Most of the ones I've done so far ( I've done Jacknife and Cancer, for anyone who knows the show) have came out fine. Now, I just did this one of Jailbot-

And it came out lighter. Now, I'm in Chicago, and It's gotten somewhat warmer this weekend than last weekend. I left the paste on for about 2 hours ( I don't leave it on for a really long time cause  I need the henna to fade within about 6 or 7 days). Well, all my other ones have turned out like this-

You can rub powdered ammonia on a fresh stain immediately after paste removal, but the results may vary (sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and ammonia is rough on skin).  If the stain is already oxidized, there's not much you can do apart from going back over the stain with more henna.

I don't know if this is an old wives tale, but keep it dry and keep it warm (especially with steam). This seems to help with me, but it could be the placebo effect.
