How to treat my just shaved scalp

I am 50 y woman and for the first time I shaved my scalp. I had always thin hair and I never had thick hair and it has always been thin on the top/back of my head. I shaved my hair three days ago and I am planning to shave again next week (new moon phase no allow to grow quickly).
How should I wash and treat my scalp now and my hair as it grows to ensure my hair goes back healthy and with more volume.
By the way previously my scalp was always oily (as it is now) while my hair was dry.

Hello,
First of all, you need to pay attention to your diet. Your hair needs vitamins and minerals to grow that it can only get from the bloodstream. So if you want to speed up your hair growth and thickness you should limit the intake of fat and salts. Selenium, zinc and magnesium are some of the minerals that your hair needs and also amino acids and vitamin E will help in growing hairs. You can regularly massage scalp with oil, use protein conditioner to avoid loss and help growing, prevent exposure in hot sun etc.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Thank you very much for your advise.
I have some issues with my scalp. After 9 days I shave for the second time and today after 8 days I have a dry scalp and a lot of red dots some of the like
pimple's. I will try to explain the process:

Day 1 second shave in the direction that the hair grows. Inmediatly after I put 100% pure Argan oil.

Day 2 massage with that oil and left as long during the day and after shampooa nd conditioner with a Natural products (Vitamin E, Pro-Vitamin B5, Rice Protein & Wheat Protein).

Day 3 I notice the red dots around my head in groups not even (sides, back and top) continuedme as day2

Day 4,5 &6 I exfoliate with Nutrimetic product (powder adding watter) and after shampoo and conditioner. I felt my scalp soo dry those days.

Day 7 & 8 (today)I only clean my scalp with an Enjo bodycloth and shampoo and conditioner.
Today still my scalp dry and I feel a little pain in the red spots specially those ones that look like pimple's.

Please help me again.

Many thanks in advance
