Hello my name is ***** ***** I'm a vet in the UK.
Is Nala wet all over? Did she inhale any water?
I'm not worried by the shampoo if it was washed off and Nala didn't ingest any.
It sounds like she might just be cold from the water? At 9 weeks of age she will get very cold quite quickly when wet. Can you put the heating on? I wouldn't use the hair drier or fireplace as cats do get singed.
If you washed the shampoo off it will be fine. Human shampoo contains more detergent than pet shampoo so yes can be irritating on the eyes and skin. But a one off accidental I don't think will be harmful.
