I've messed up already....

Ok I'm new here and I've messed up already:roll:!! I was planning on starting CG today. I did a last sulfate wash, then co-wash, then conditioner....so far so good. Then I put in a tiny bit of gel, and left to air dry. My main problem is that I bought the gel whilst in a hurry ( had my 16 month old and 3 year old with me!) and AFTER I'd put it in I noticed it had PEG12-dimethicone in it. aaarrrrgggghh:banghead: So my question....do I need to do a full poo wash again, or will this be ok to carry on co-washing as it is water sol supposedly? I'm going to get a new gel tomorrow....but need to know how to go on from here.
My hair still looks shocking by the way, but I think I just need time to let it adjust and to find the right products/routine for it ( and to recover from the years of straightener abuse!!:toothy10:)
So what do I do? Start over or continue with co-wash etc...

    PEG-modified cones are fine -they're water soluble. No need to start over. :-)
