I would PM IAgirl to get her advice as far as leaving the Ion PT on longer since I agree, I don't know if it would do anything bad to your hair to leave it on for a while. I know with IAgirl's PT, I can leave it on for a long time, but that is because it is very simple as far as ingredients I think.
Is the Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle moisturizing but cleansing? I'm looking for something that won't strip my hair, but also cleanses enough.
