Sun or humidity or both

A bit more:

Over processing hair can cause a great deal of damage. If you color, perm, or relax your hair, any of those can result in damage. With each of these procedures, you need to wait at least seven days in between before another process.

Consult your hair stylist for a trim, or even a full cut, to get rid of the damaged hair, then use a good shampoo and conditioner made specifically for damaged hair.

A couple other ways hair gets damaged is by applying an excess amount of heat (blow drying, curling, straightening, etc.), using too many hair products, and lack of care.
