Taqseer has to be done when coming out of Umrat-ut-Tamatu’. It is not permissible to shave the head, as doing so is forbidden; it attracts a kaffarah of a sheep, if one does so knowingly and deliberately. Indeed, this could be the case in all circumstances, as a matter of recommended precaution (al ahwatil aqwa).
