shudder to remember how

Hi everyone!

I'm a little unsure how to translate 'shudder to remember' in this situation...

Context: a young woman is remembering how she hated to have her hair done when she was a little girl because, since it was so thick and often matted (which I can totally relate to! :D ) the ordeal involved a lot of pulling and yanking.

The original phrase is: She remembered when she was younger and her nanny would insist on untangling her hair. She shuddered to remember how the old woman had pulled at it.

Would it work to translate it as 'elle frémit en se souvenant comme...'

Thanks in advance for any assistance!
