Can I dye my hair with Garnier Nutrisse Light Intense Auburn after henna?

Just this past weekend I hennaed my hair with Lush Caca Rouge. It was my first time, and it did nothing... literally nothing to my hair. I know that henna builds up with repeated use, but for the cost of Lush, I would prefer immediate results. I was hoping for the "burning fire at sunset" described on the package, but alas, that was not the case. How long do I have to wait after hennaing to chemically dye? I'd do a strand test, but I have a short pixie cut so I don't have hair long enough to get an accurate test on. Who out there in MeFi-land has chemically dyed after henna? How long did you wait?
Note: I have used Garnier several times leading up to henna so I know exactly what I'm going to get with Garnier; I'm just not thrilled with the results of henna given the cost of Lush.
