Positive Commandment 111 (Digest)
The Final Purification Process of the Metzora

"And it shall be on the seventh day he shall shave"Leviticus 14:9.

On the seventh day following the implementation of the first stage of his purification process, the Metzora brings special sacrifices in the Temple, shaves his body and does all else that is prescribed in the Torah for this procedure—and then his purification process has been completed.

Translation of (the unabridged text of) Sefer Hamitzvot by Rabbi Berel Bell, member of the Rabbinical Court of Montreal and director of Teacher Training for the Jewish Learning Institute.

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
