Anti-cones but accidently used cones ... now what?

I was going to put my hair into a braid and decided to put a little argan oil in my hair before I did the braid. Well I put a tiny bit into the palm of my hand, about a 1/4 teaspoon and smoothed it on my hair from my ears down. For some reason after I applied the oil to my hair, I looked at the ingredients on the bottle and it has dimethiconol ....

I just recently started CO-washing, literally 3 days ago and have been avoiding cones. Now that I accidentally used some, what do I do? Will it build up? So I have to used a clarifying shampoo or do you think that since I used so little and not on my scalp it will be fine?

It can't build up from one use, but it may sit in your hair and distort your results unless you clarify.

Try to limit the number if products you use and changes you make as you experiment with new products or techniques. One at a time so you know what is working and what is not.

It's no big deal - go and get a cone free product for deep conditioning and use it after you have washed your hair.

There will be other times when you need to use shampoo to get something out of your hair that can't be removed with just co-washing.
