Products To Use on Keratin Treated Hair

Hi everyone! Alright, so I'm having a difficult time figuring out what to shampoo with right now. I typically use a sulfate free shampoo and a silicone free conditioner. However, I just did the Ion Keratin Treatment from Sally Beauty's and I feel like I need to completely change my regimen! I did the treatment to loosen my curl pattern a bit, and maybe add a little shine. The treatment specifically says to NOT use a shampoo with any added Chloride, as salt will wash out the treatment. One of my sulfate free shampoos has Chloride, so I've stopped using it. So far I have been using Deva Low Poo since it doesn't contain either chloride or sulfate.

This hasn't been working for me, and I think it's because the Ion Keratin Conditioner I purchased to use with this treatment has silicone. I figured the treatment would work better if I used the products that go along with it
There is a shampoo that can be purchases, but its totally out of stock and I can't find it anywhere.

My question... Should I continue using the Keratin conditioner even though it contains silicone? Should I try to find a shampoo without chloride or sulfates? Or, should the shampoo contain sulfates??

I don't know what to do. I could also stop using the conditioner with silicone and go back to sulfate free everything. However it wouldn't contain any Keratin to keep the treatment working.

Basically... am I going to need to use sulfates because of this treatment? Is that okay? Will I do lots of damage to my hair??

Please help! :)

    When I had the Coppola Keratin Treatment, I used Keratin Complex Color Care Shampoo & Conditioner.

    I just had the Brazilian Blowout in June, and I use Brazilian Blowout Acai Anti-Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner, Serum, & Masque. These products are wonderful and really keep my hair smooth and frizz-free.
