Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 5 years ago.

The head has a soft tissue layer called as scalp which has skin and a thin layer of muscle with fascia. A shower (especially a warm shower) can change the consistency of scalp transiently. There is nothing worrisome about it. It returns back to normal in some time.
