Hard water certainly contributes since the soap combines with the water mineral and sticks to your skin, becoming an irritant. Certain skin disorders or a fungus called M.furfur can cause or contribute to dandruff.

If a water softener isn't an option, try a good dandruff shampoo. Doctors often recommend Selsun but you may want to ask your doctor for his/her recommendations.
