Exclamation Shed Help

Hi! I have a rosy boa named Louie. He is about 5 months old (born in October 2020) and he is my first snake. He is going through his first shed and we r having some issues. He got the shed off his body in one piece (took him a little while to get it off though) and most of his head is off. He can't get part of the shed off his head though. I can tell he is trying, because he will rub his head against everything (including my hands) but he just can't get it off. He has eaten (and ate incredibly well for him) but he isn't acting himself. He isn't as curious and exploring as he normally is. I really don't want to hurt him and I read that you are not supposed to get the shed off their eyes because it can damage their eyes. However, that is exactly where the last bit of shed is stuck. I helped him a little bit on his nose and the top of his head, but the eye is tricky. I tried a humidity box (just a warm, damp towel in a box) and that seemed to help but not completely. I don't know what else to try and I am getting a little worried. Can anybody help me?
