Head bolts are torque to yeild so you MUST use new bolts.
Tighten cylinder head retaining bolts in numerical sequence in three steps as follows:

New Headbolts are recommended
Long bolts are torqued to 46'lbs + 90 degrees.
Short bolts are torqued 43'lbs + 90 degrees.
Start in the center, and work to the edges, torquing the bolts in two stages.
Rockers are torqued to 22'lbs.

I really really really hope you turned the bolts an additional 90 degrees after torquing to 22 Ft-lbs. Otherwise, you may be taking that head off again.
Best of luck,
