Default silicone problem

I am cg 3weeks and it. Is working great on my hair. But yesterday i checked my hair oil and i saw that it is full of silicones. I dont think that its a great idea to shampoo my hair again and conditioner works on my hair. Of course i wont use this oil again. Do i have to shampoo again necessarily?

Up to you if you want to live with the build up, conditioner only washing does not remove silicones.

Do the build up change something in my hair?

You should use a shampoo that can get out the silicone. You can use a sulfate poo or a shampoo that has coco betaine high in the ingredients.

If you stop using silicones, and can deal with some possible bad hair days in the meantime, the silicone will eventually wear off of your hair in about 4-6 weeks. If you don't want to wait that long, one shampoo isn't going to force you to start from square one (even if it's a sulfate shampoo). Sulfate-free shampoos (as suggested by an earlier poster) are considered completely CG.
