dry, rough hair ends after henna use

 I have hair an inch shy of my shoulder and have been coloring it black with products from the drug store for a year. Bleached over the black to go all blue last june and stopped that in November. For a couple months now I've been nursing my damaged hair back to health with organic products, oil, homemade mixtures and decided to try henna two days ago. I added some olive oil, honey and tea to the mixture, kept the henna in my hair for 5 hours, washed it out, air dried my hair and massaged brahmi oil onto my scalp the next morning. 

I'm pleased with the henna because I DO see a deeper color to my hair and there's an added volume as well; I'm just a little concerned that my hair isn't showing signs of being conditioned. This is what I'd hoped for. Did I do something wrong with the henna mixture? Is there a recipe for an after-henna conditioner some magical person can pass on to me? ;)

You could try oiling the ends overnight several times.

Another henna application might help, though that will deepen and darken your color.

Sometimes hair that's been chemically dyed/bleached multiple times just needs to be trimmed; it can get to the point where henna won't help.
