How long ago did you bring the snake home? It could be a sign of low humidity levels, as well as a number of other things. Low humidity is the most common cause for bad sheds though. Rainbow boas are tropical creatures. They need a good bit of humidity.

give your boa a large water bowl with barely WARM water, let it soak and spray the snake when not in the water.
