It could be that you need to do it more often or leave it on longer. I like leaving IAgirl's PT for anywhere from a half hour to an hour; when I've done it for less, I can barely tell a difference. Granted, no matter what, it's not a drastic difference, but I can definitely see it if I leave it on for a while.

But I'm not sure if it's alright to leave this certain protein treatment on for longer than a couple minutes or not.

Also, I bought the tresemme naturals radiant volume conditioner and the trader joe's tea tree tingle conditioner to try out. I really like them both. The trader joe's tea tree tingle works well as a co-wash and a rinse out for me. So thanks for suggesting these everyone!

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.
