Harsh chemicals, overusing heat without heat protection, being in the sun on holiday, washing your hair too often, not having the ends trimmed regularly or lack of care. Not over washing your hair, washing your hair every single day removes essential natural oils. Use the correct shampoo and conditioner.
Using the correct shampoo and conditioner can also prevent to scalp from becoming dry and flakey. Some cheap shampoos temporarily strip the scalp of dandruff, for it to appear like its been removed but actually its drying the scalp out more and removing essential natural oils the scalp needs.
