Has anyone gotten a sort of all over headache after shaving already shedding hair? There is still stubble.

    Hi Connie, I never had a headache but my scalp was very tender!!! My scalp had little red bumps all over as well. My dr said to wash gently with Dove then put a very thin coat of Eurcerin. It got better when all the hair was gone. :).

    Mind hurt while my stubbies came out, try silk pillow cases and leaving your head air out !

    Thank you everyone for the feedback and tips. Also about the baby oil. I was just now trying to figure out wheat to put on my head for the flakiness

    Someone told me to use ponds night cream and it really did help. The tenderness won't last long

    Connie try using a satin pillow case too. It reduces the resistance when your head comes in contact with the pillow

    I just had my hubby shave my head yesterday because it was so uncomfortable. Not sure about a headache related to it though?

    Argh! Sorry for the double post. I was going to say if your scalp is tender, I highly recommend baby shampoo followed by baby oil. Helped me tremendously! Good luck. :)
