Shampoo brings out my curls but conditioner kills them?

My hair is in the middle of 3b and 3c.
I have heat damage all along the front of my head (of course its the part ppl see) and its pretty bone straight because of it. But when I have shampoo in my hair it reverts back to its formerly curly state. As soon as I wash it out it goes back straight again. Its happens every time.
Even when I scrunch it doesn't come back. With or without conditioner it doesn't come back.
Whats happening? How do I keep those curls? I don't want to keep shampoo in my hair since I know shampoo isnt exactly the best thing for it, but I really want to keep those curls. Is there a secret product out there that can help me? Has anyone had this before? Does my hair like not having conditioner in it? ( Its my only styling product :
What are the ingredients in your shampoo and conditioner?

What's your technique for applying them?
Shampoo: salon care honey and almond shampoo:WATER ,SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE ,SODIUM CHLORIDE ,COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE ,COCAMIDE MEA ,DMDM HYDANTOIN ,FRAGRANCE ,TETRASODIUM EDTA ,GLYCOL DISTEARATE ,CITRIC ACID ,LAURETH-10 ,POLYQUATERNIUM-7 ,HYDROLYZED KERATIN ,YELLOW 5 ,PROPYLENE GLYCOL ,PYRUS COMMUNIS (PEAR) FRUIT EXTRACT ,PYRUS MALUS (APPLE) FRUIT EXTRACT ,BLUE 1

Conditioner: salon care honey and almond conditioner:WATER ,BLUE 1 LAKE ,YELLOW 5 ,WATER ,PROPYLENE GLYCOL ,STEARALKONIUM CHLORIDE ,CETYL ALCOHOL ,CITRIC ACID ,DICETYLDIMONIUM CHLORIDE ,FRAGRANCE ,HYDROLYZED KERATIN ,DMDM HYDANTOIN ,PYRUS MALUS (APPLE) FRUIT EXTRACT ,PYRUS COMMUNIS (PEAR) FRUIT EXTRACT ,WATER

I apply shampoo to the tips of my fingers and massage it into the scalp, as it drips down the hair shafts, my hair re-curls.
Sodium chloride is table salt, that is a wave booster tho also potentially drying and damaging. Never seen a product with it so high in the ingredients.

Your conditioner is loaded with propylene glycol which is a potent humectant, that can absorb too much water and loosen curl pattern especially in higher dews. Porous hair will be more vulnerable to the effects.

Both have hydrolysed protein, that can have very strange and unpredictable effects on hair if overused: some get frizz, others straw, overly soft, curlier, bone straight.

@longhaircurly it looks like you need a new shampoo and conditioner.

Try and work out your hair properties first and post them.
What are some proven drug store brands? I usually buy those shampoo and conditioner because its only $15 a liter. I'm in school and anything that cheap for that much pretty much wins out over anything else.
