I got a Brazilian Blowout!

I had my brazilian blowout last friday. Love my hair straight but havent gone back to curly yet. Will do that tomorrow. I did not buy the BB shampoo but am wondering what you all are using that doesnt have sulfates and sodiums in it? I can find no sulfates but the sodium seems to be an issue. The salon where I had the BB done only said anything about no sulfates didnt mention sodiums.
Any info would be great. I'll post before and after pics later
Hair type 3A/B,
texture- fine
porosity- low.....except end but think thats from the damage.
even though I have a BKT, and the BB products do contain sodiums, just not sodium chloride.

For a while i was thinking the BB products were stripping my BKT, then I just realized that my BKT brand (coppolla) is crappolla.

Anyway, to answer your question is a bit difficult because other than the BB products, all other products are for people who've had a BKT and they are significantly cheaper than the BB products, and not sure if they are BB safe( but probably will be). Many of the the BKT shampoos are not sulfate free....perhaps you can try SOFTLISS bkt products as an alternative. Softliss is made by the same company as the BB http://www.softliss.com/carrito/. Their shampoo and conditioner duo is $29. Not sure if it's sulfate free though...since the BB is a softer treatment, you may want to only stick to Sulfate free shampoos...if that's the case you may want to bite the bullet and buy the BB products on ebay or amazon.

My beauty supply store sells a generic sodium chloride and sulfate free shampoo ( $9). Haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure if you search amazon you can find something similar there.
Washed my hair with sulfate free shampoo and used the BB mask kept on for 5 min or so. my hair is dry dry dry and very coarse feeling on the ends. Wondering if the poo I used stripped the BB from my hair. Not happy with my curl formation used to have small spiral curls. Well no longer. Very loose curls if any and more wavy.
I'm thinking BB was a definite waste of money But of course where I live cant find sodium and sulfate free shampoo's or conditioners. I hate living in the boonies. Ok sorry I digress and will stop complaining. I feel like I'm starting over again with my hair. It wasnt that bad with the no cones modified CG routine...someday I'll learn and leave well enough alone!!!
I dont know how to upload pics so you can see. If anyone can help with that I'll be glad to share before and after pics.

had sodium chloride in it ( sea salt), then yes it could have stripped your bb. What brand shampoo was it? You can order sodium chloride and sulfate free shampoos online. Sodium Chloride is more harmful to to the BB and BKT than sulfates. In fact, a lot of BKT shampoos have sulfates in them. Sea salt is the real killer of BBs and BKTs.
I used loreal everpure. since the stylist didnt say anything about sodium and just said sulfate free thought it would be okay. If it stripped the BB out then you would think my curls would be back to normal and that didnt happen. Going to get the shampoo for BB today.
