Why is everything foaming in my hair?

Hi I'm fairly new to this forum. I've been embracing my curls for a year after 10 years of straightening, following a modified cg method and my curls are back now. However the last week everything I put in my hair is making it foam up like I've just shampoo'd and I don't know why.

Has this happened to anyone else? Or does anyone have an idea what this means?

It happened using my usual products so it makes no sense.
Thanks.
3A with tight ringlet underlayer.
Mixed porosity, medium texture and density.

Cleaner - Shea Moisture fruit fusion shampoo, Maui Moisture curl quench shampoo, cleansing conditioner.
Conditioner - L'Oreal Botanicals safflower conditioner.
P/T - Curl Junkie repair me
D/T - Shea Moisture manuka honey or fruit fusion mask

    Which products? I remember when i was new to CG i got the same thing. Im wondering if it has to do with hair being lower porosity because products dont absorb easily and mix and react on the hair.

    Hi thanks for replying. The main products that are foaming are Giovanni smooth as silk conditioner and Devacurl supercream. I thought maybe it was the supercream since I'm quite new to it but I didn't use it, just the conditioner and my usual gel and I had to squeeze all the foam out it was so bad.

    If you hair is in good health as in the curls seem fine, isnt dry or overly tangly or suddenly frizzy(a neonor amount of tangles between wash days is natural for curly hair) then i wouldnt worry. Im still guessing you have low porosity hair and your products (which all contain a small number of conditioning surfactants) are causing the foam on thr surface of the hair.
    This is what i think though and it used to be happrn to me when i had softer gentler water.

    Well products have stopped foaming in my hair this week. No idea why, I've not done anything different.

    How weird - I used Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner today for the first time, and it was kind of foamy!  I have no idea why.
