Those who have keratin straightening treatments - what shampoo do you use?

I've been using the Tresemmé shampoo in the red bottle, but I've just been to get another one and noticed they have slightly changed the packaging. The ingredients now list sodium chloride as an ingredient.
So, any recommendations for a sodium chloride free shampoo?

Oooo, thanks for the update on this. I have used the Tresemme one and I noticed they have changed the packaging but didn't realise the ingredients have changed too. My hair has gone frizzy now, I do need a Keratin treatment top up, but I wonder if the shampoo is partly why too.
My favourite choice is the Organix Brazilian Keratin Smooth stuff but it is usually about £6 a bottle so I only get it when it is on special in Boots or Tesco, which they haven't done for a while. It is really thick and smells lovely.

I use the Organix conditioner - it is lovely.
I think I might get some of the salt free stuff from Amazon that's sold by the people who sell their brazilian blow dry treatment. I've used it before but I wasn't that impressed with it. I don't want to use anything that will shorten the time the treatment lasts though, since I only get around 8 weeks out of it anyway, and the not washing for three days is really horrible so don't want to do it any more frequently than necessary.
Thanks for all replies.

I hate the organix shampoo... for some reason my hair does not like it. I use the tresemme, or sainsbury's kids cherry and almond shampooo cheap and lovely. I also use one of the naked range from boots but check the labels they are not all sodium chloride free.

I've recently keratin treated my hair and have had the same problem that the Tresemme and Organix shampoos now include sodium chloride.
The only salt free shampoo I could find is the Dr Organic range in Holland and Barratt which is also SLS free. Unfortunately I came out in dandruff after using it and it leaves my hair limp. Not sure what the answer is. For the moment I am using my old Tresemme shampoo which I know will dissolve the keratin quicker.

I use the keratin kits range shampoo and conditioner. It's the only shampoo without salt which actually lathers my hair, so you actually feel like you're getting it clean.
Have actually considered stopping using the treatment recently. My hair gets greasy really quickly now and also, my hair seems quite flat. A problem I never had before. Also, when I do the treatment, I feel like the chemicals are really harsh as they make my eyes water and it hurts when I breathe it in. Anybody else concerned with this?

I did a home keratin treatment 2 days ago and found it really difficult to use due to the fumes-but am hoping for good results when I wash tommorow.
I've bought the botanics shampoo and conditioner from boots..it doesn't seem to have any sulphates in but I might be wrong!
