"Instant scalping… but dragons had no hair… pepper breath… that would probably increase a dragon's firepower… horn tongue… just what he needed, to give it an extra weapon…"
—Harry Potter scans the contents of the book, but finds nothing that can help against a dragon[src]

The Instant scalping hex (incantation unknown) shaves all the hair off a target's scalp. This may be related to the Hair Loss Curse, or may even be the same spell referred to differently.

History

Harry Potter came across it while browsing the index of Basic Hexes for the Busy and Vexed, trying to find a way to fight the dragon he knew he would have to face for the First Task of the Triwizard Tournament. He quickly decided it would be ineffective, because dragons do not have hair.[1]
