As I understand it, hair will absorb the maximum amount of protein it can, and once it's "full", leaving a pt on longer won't give any better results than a shorter time would. Length of time to pt definitely does depend on the hair. Some only leave it on a few minutes, others can do a very strong pt and leave it on for an hour or more.
I use IAGirl's gelatin pt, apply, baggie, add a towel or t-shirt turban, and leave it in for 30 minutes. A towel or t-shirt seems to keep enough body heat in to enhance absorption for me.
