Default What about styling products?

I was encouraged to buy the mega-expensive salon products, which I did, except I just don't like them, I've realized. I can cope with the shampoo. But why can't I use my old conditioner?

Anyone know?
They're just trying to make more money. You can use any shampoo you want. The thing to avoid is sodium in the products. That's why they say stay out of the ocean, pools and be careful with sweating.

My hair is fine and if it's not clean, it's limp and flat. Their shampoos don't clean enough for me. If you read the labels, most Suave shampoos don't have sodium. I picked up Finesse from Big Lots for $3. There are lots of others. Even if you use a shampoo with sodium, it won't wear off immediately, just a little faster.
Thanks for the info, just got mine done last Thursday and I feel extremely nervous using any styling products not knowing whether they'll cause the keratin to wear off...the other concern is that if I use any styling product, I'm afraid that it'll buildup faster and then I'll need to use clarifying shampoos to clean my hair. Does anyone have any suggestions on a CKT after care?
