If you apply henna for only 15 minutes, then wash it off with soap, the stain will be pale, not darken, and the stain will be brief.
If you apply fresh henna paste and leave it on overnight, the skin will be more saturated with dye and from a brief application. That stain will be darker and last longer than the stain from a brief application.
If you apply henna that is slightly stale, and leave it on briefly, the stain will be pale, not darken, and the stain will be brief.
Therefore, if you do a brief henna application and an overnight henna application, one stain will be light and the other will be dark. Your completed henna pattern will have 2 colors.
