When the menthol-based drug is sprayed on the head, it can give the hair-washed person a refreshing feeling and a refreshing feeling, and the comfort of the hair-washed person is improved.

  FIG. 4 is a view showing the relationship between the head support net 70 and the neck nozzle link 80. As shown in FIG. 4A, the neck nozzle link 80 is a tubular member bent into a substantially M shape, and brackets 81 and 81 are fixed to two corners by welding. It is being fixed to the inner wall of the front side of the sink 2 via. The horizontal portion 82 of the neck nozzle link 80 is convexly curved to follow the shape of the neck of the person to be washed, and the three nozzles 83 are spaced at an appropriate interval near the center of the upper portion. , 83, 83 are attached. Further, as shown in FIG. 4B, two support rods 84 that are orthogonal to the horizontal portion 82 and extend substantially horizontally toward the inside of the sink 2 are fixed to the horizontal portion 82 by welding. The support rods 84 support the support portions 71 at both ends of the head support net 70.

  The head support net 70 is a resin-molded member, and as shown in FIGS. 5A and 5B, the head support net 70 has support portions 71 to which the support rods 84 are fitted at both ends thereof. The head support net 70 has a large mesh 72A near the central portion 72 corresponding to the back head vertex of the person to be washed, and the smaller the mesh 71A is, the closer to the support portions 71 at both ends. With reference to FIG. 2, the head support net 70 is fixed at a position that does not affect the operation of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12, that is, a position that avoids the trajectory of the links 11 and 12.

The upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 are both configured to be cantilevered and can be repeatedly moved synchronously.
Specifically, referring to FIG. 2B, the upper nozzle link 11 starts rotating in the direction of arrow C around the rotation axis A, rotates from the top position T1 shown in FIG. 2, and reaches the occipital position T2. From there, it is possible to move backward to return to the top position T1. Here, when the upper nozzle link 11 is at the head top position T1, the washing water is sprayed near the head of the person to be washed, so the head position T1 corresponds to the head of the head of the person to be washed. Is the position. Further, when the upper nozzle link 11 is at the occipital position T2, the washing water is jetted near the back of the head of the hair-washed person, so the back-of-head position T2 is a position corresponding to the back of the head of the hair-washed person. is there.

  On the other hand, the lower nozzle link 12 starts to rotate in the direction of the arrow D around the rotation axis B, rotates from the hair position T3 shown in FIG. 2, reaches the lower occipital position T4, and reversely rotates from there to the hair position. The movement of returning to T3 is possible. Here, when the lower nozzle link 12 is at the hair position T3, the washing water is sprayed on the hair that hangs down under the person to be washed, so the hair position T3 is from the head housed in the sink 2. This is the position corresponding to the hair that hangs down. In addition, when the lower nozzle link 12 is at the lower occipital position T4, since the washing water is jetted near the back of the head of the hair-washed person, the lower occipital position T4 corresponds to the back of the head of the hair-washed person. Position.

In the present embodiment, the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 move in the same direction synchronously as follows by a drive mechanism (not shown).
That is, referring to FIG. 2B, assuming that the upper nozzle link 11 is at the top position T1 and the lower nozzle link 12 is at the hair position T3, when the upper nozzle link 11 starts to rotate in the direction of arrow C, the lower nozzle link 12 also Synchronously, the rotation starts in the direction of arrow D. When the upper nozzle link 11 reaches the occipital position T2, the lower nozzle link 12 reaches the lower occipital position T4 at the same time. On the other hand, assuming that the upper nozzle link 11 is at the occipital position T2 and the lower nozzle link 12 is at the lower occipital position T4, when the upper nozzle link 11 starts rotating in the direction opposite to the arrow C, the lower nozzle link 12 is also synchronized with the arrow. The rotation starts in the direction opposite to D, and when the upper nozzle link 11 reaches the top position T1, the lower nozzle link 12 reaches the hair position T3 at the same time.

Here, for example, the upper nozzle link 11 moves in the same direction as the hair grows while spraying the cleaning water, while the lower nozzle link 12 moves in the opposite direction to the hair grows while spraying the cleaning water, etc. When the movement directions of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 with respect to the direction in which the hair grows are different, the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 each have their hair washed from different directions with respect to the direction in which the hair grows. The cleaning water will be sprayed on the person's head and hair, which may cause the hair to become tangled.
However, as described above, since the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 are configured to move in the same direction synchronously, each of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 with respect to the hair growth direction. It is possible to prevent a situation in which the moving directions always coincide and the hair gets tangled.
Furthermore, during the movement of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12, it is possible to ensure that these nozzle links do not contact.
Although details will be described later, in the present embodiment, the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 move at different speeds or move within a certain range under the control of the microcomputer 89 described later. Then, complicated movements such as pausing and repetitive movement within a predetermined range are possible.

  In the present embodiment, with the above configuration, when the head of the person to be washed is positioned on the head support net 70 in the sink 2, the neck faces the inside of the sink 2. And since wash water is jetted from the neck nozzle link 80 toward the neck of this hair-washed person, coupled with the operation of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12, it is almost complete including the neck. Automatic hair washing becomes possible. Further, since the head support net 70 is arranged so as to avoid the movement trajectory of each nozzle link 11, 12, the head support net 70 does not hinder the operation of the nozzle link 11, 12, and interference can be avoided. In addition, since the support portion of the head is formed by the net 70, the washing water from each nozzle link 11 and 12 easily spreads to the back of the head of the person being washed. In addition, since the support portions 71 at both ends of the head support net 70 are connected to the support rods 84 of the neck nozzle link 80, the sink 2 is bothered with additional processing to attach the head support net 70. There is no need to do this, and simple mounting can be realized.

Further, since both ends of the neck nozzle link 80 are supported by the sink 2, a space can be secured around the neck nozzle link 80, and when washing with the hand shower 13, the neck nozzle link 80 is provided. Does not get in the way and hand movements during shampooing are not hindered. In addition, since the head support net 70 and the neck nozzle link 80 are connected to each other below the neck of the person to be washed, it is possible to secure right and left hair washing spaces.
In addition, since the head support net 70 has a large mesh at the central portion 72 corresponding to the apex of the back of the head, the wash water from each nozzle link 11, 12 tends to reach the vicinity of the apex of the back of the head, and the mesh becomes closer to the support portions 71 at both ends. Therefore, the strength near the support portion 71 is increased, and the strength of the support is improved.

FIG. 6 is a block diagram showing an electrical configuration of the automatic hair washing machine 1.
The operation of the automatic hair washer 1 is controlled by the microcomputer 89. In addition to the first water level sensor 26, the second water level sensor 27, the overflow sensor 31, the first thermistor 19, the microcomputer 89 receives signals from the operation panel 60 for setting and operating the operation content of the automatic hair washer 1. It is designed to be entered.
The microcomputer 89 includes a motor 20, a hot water storage valve 24, a shampoo pump 38, a conditioner pump 39, an upper nozzle valve 42, a lower nozzle valve 43, a neck nozzle valve 74, a drain valve 44, and a medicine supply pump. 94 and a chemical nozzle valve 95 are connected as control targets. The mixing valve 15 is connected to the motor 20, and the microcomputer 89 can adjust the temperature of the hot water sent to the water supply pipe 16 by driving and controlling the motor 20 to open and close the mixing valve 15. .

As shown in FIG. 6, the microcomputer 89 is connected to an inverter 64 that controls the discharge pressure of the cleaning water discharged from the main pump 32 by supplying an alternating current to the main pump 32. As shown in FIG. 3, the wash water discharged from the main pump 32 is ejected from the nozzles of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 through the upper nozzle valve 42 and the lower nozzle valve 43. Therefore, the microcomputer 89 can control the spraying pressure of the cleaning water sprayed from the nozzles of the nozzle links by controlling the inverter 64.
The microcomputer 89 is connected to a drive motor 98 that controls the movement of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12. The drive motor 98 is constituted by a stepping motor, and controls the movement of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 via a drive mechanism (not shown) based on a drive signal input from the microcomputer 89. The microcomputer 89 controls the drive motor 98 to change the moving speed of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 or temporarily stops the upper and lower nozzle links 11 and 12. 11 and 12 can be complicatedly moved. Specific operations of the movement of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 during automatic hair washing by the automatic hair washer 1 will be described later.

FIG. 7 is a flowchart showing the basic operation of the automatic hair washer 1 during automatic hair washing.
As shown in FIG. 7, when performing automatic hair washing, the automatic hair washing machine 1 according to the present embodiment has a relaxation process, a first rinsing process, a shampoo process, a second rinsing process, a conditioner process, a third rinsing process, and a menthol medicine. Each process of an injection process and a 4th rinse process is performed sequentially. Hereinafter, operation | movement of the automatic hair washing machine 1 in each process is demonstrated using FIGS. 8-10.
In the following description, for convenience, the direction from the top of the head toward the neck direction along the head is referred to as a downward direction, and the direction toward the opposite is referred to as an upward direction. In other words, with respect to the upper nozzle link 11, the direction from the top position T1 to the occipital position T2 is the downward direction, and the opposite direction is the upward direction. Further, the direction from the hair position T3 to the lower occipital position T4 of the lower nozzle link 12 is the downward direction, and the opposite direction is the upward direction. In the head of the person to be washed, hair grows downward.
Further, as described above, the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 are configured to move synchronously. However, in the following description, only the movement of one nozzle link is described for convenience of explanation. There is.
In the following description, the microcomputer 89 functions as a control unit.
In the present embodiment, the spray pressure of the cleaning water sprayed from the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 can be changed in 12 stages from the lowest level 1 to the highest level 12.

FIG. 8A is a diagram for explaining the relaxation process.
This relaxation process is the process in which wash water is sprayed for the first time on the head of the hair-washed person, and the hair-washed person gets used to the fact that wash water is sprayed on the head to relax the hair-washed person. Is the main purpose. In order to achieve this object, in the relaxation process, the injection pressure is controlled so that the average value of the injection pressure level is lower than the average value of the injection pressure in the shampoo process and the conditioner process described later. Specifically, in this embodiment, the average value of the injection pressure level in the shampoo process is level 9, the average value of the injection pressure level in the conditioner process is level 8, and the level of the injection pressure in the relaxation process is The average value is controlled to be lower than level 8.
First, referring to FIG. A1, the microcomputer 89 controls the drive motor 98 and the like, moves the lower nozzle link 12 to a position where the cleaning water is sprayed to the point PD1, and then controls the inverter 64 and the like. For example, cleaning water is sprayed from the lower nozzle link 12 to the point PD1 for 3 seconds.
Next, with reference to FIG. A2, the microcomputer 89 moves the lower nozzle link 12 until it reaches the lower occipital position T4 while jetting cleaning water. At that time, the microcomputer 89 moves the lower nozzle link 12 at a very gentle speed. This is to give the hair-washed person a sense of being slowly stroked by hand and to give the hair-washed person a sense of security. Furthermore, in the relaxation process, which is a process immediately after the start of automatic hair washing, the washing water is sprayed while moving the lower nozzle link 12 at such a slow speed, so that the hair is washed by the machine without surprise to the person being washed. This is to remove the feeling of being and give a sense of quality.

Here, in FIG. A2, the microcomputer 89 causes the lower nozzle link 12 to inject cleaning water near the back of the head of the person to be washed (in the case of injecting cleaning water in the directions indicated by the arrows E and F). Increase the injection pressure compared to the case.
This is a state in which the washing water is launched when the washing water is sprayed near the back of the head of the person to be washed, in order to prevent the water pressure of the washing water reaching the back of the person to be washed from weakening due to this. It is. In addition, when the washing water is sprayed near the back of the head of the person to be washed, the hair hanging from the back of the head prevents the washing water sprayed from the lower nozzle link 12 from reaching the back of the head. This is to prevent the water pressure of the washing water reaching the back of the head of the user from being weakened. Also, in human heads, the back of the head tends to be less sensitive than other parts, but by increasing the spray pressure of the wash water sprayed in the vicinity of the back of the head, it is possible to massage the person to be washed with the spray of wash water. This is to ensure the effect.

In particular, in the present embodiment, the microcomputer 89 determines the spraying pressure of the cleaning water sprayed to the head where the head support net 70 is located (the spraying pressure of the cleaning water sprayed in the direction indicated by the arrow F), The spray pressure is set higher than the spray pressure of the cleaning water sprayed to the head where there is no head support net 70. In the present embodiment, the microcomputer 89 sets the spray pressure of the cleaning water sprayed to the head at the position where the head support net 70 is at level 9 and the spray pressure of the cleaning water sprayed to the other portions to the level. 7 to control each.
This is to prevent a situation in which cleaning water is weakly jetted to the head at a position where the net is located due to the presence of the net. Further, in the present embodiment, the hair is difficult to move by being sandwiched between the head support net 70 and the back of the head, and the washing water sprayed from the lower nozzle link 12 by the hair sandwiched between these is inhibited from reaching the back of the head. However, this is for preventing the water pressure of the washing water reaching the back of the head of the person to be washed from weakening due to this.
In the present embodiment, the same control as the control for the lower nozzle link 12 described above is performed for the upper nozzle link 11, and this control is performed while automatic hair washing is being performed by the automatic hair washer 1.
Note that whether or not the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 are spraying cleaning water near the back of the head may be detected based on a drive signal output from the microcomputer 89 to the drive motor 98, for example. Alternatively, a position detection sensor that detects the positions of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 may be connected to the microcomputer 89 and detected based on the output value of the position detection sensor.

  Next, referring to FIG. A3, the microcomputer 89 controls the neck nozzle valve 74 and the like, and sprays washing water from the neck nozzle link 80 to the point PK1 corresponding to the neck of the person to be washed. Here, the washing water to be sprayed is warm water. Thus, by spraying warm water on the neck of the person to be washed, the blood flow at the neck is improved, the tension of the entire head is released, and the massage effect can be improved. Thereafter, the injection of warm water from the neck nozzle link 80 is performed until the relaxation process is completed. Thereby, warm water will be sprayed to a to-be-washed person's neck over a long time, and there can exist the effect mentioned above effectively. In FIG. A3, as indicated by the wavy arrow, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 to the top position T1 and the lower nozzle link 12 to the hair position T3.

Next, referring to FIG. A4, the microcomputer 89 drives the upper nozzle link 11 so as to repeatedly move from the top position T1 to the occipital position T2 while jetting cleaning water. At that time, the microcomputer 89 makes the injection pressure when the upper nozzle link 11 is moving downward higher than the injection pressure when it is moving upward. In the present embodiment, the microcomputer 89 performs injection when the level of the injection pressure when the upper nozzle link 11 is moving downward is at level 8 and when the upper nozzle link 11 is moving upward. The injection pressure is controlled so that the pressure level becomes level 5.
Here, when massaging the head with a human hand, in order to achieve a smooth massage according to the direction in which the hair grows, usually the same direction as the direction in which the hair grows rather than in the direction opposite to the direction in which the hair grows The power to crawl is stronger.
In the above-described control, when the upper nozzle link 11 is moved downward, that is, when the washing water is sequentially jetted in the same direction as the hair grows, the injection pressure moves the upper nozzle link 11 in the opposite direction. In other words, it is higher than the spray pressure when the wash water is sprayed sequentially in the direction opposite to the direction in which the hair grows. For this reason, during the automatic hair washing, it is possible to give the hair-washed person the feeling of being massaged manually.
Furthermore, according to the control described above, since the spray pressure when the washing water is sequentially sprayed in the direction opposite to the direction in which the hair grows is weak, the reverse hair state is unlikely to occur and the hair can be prevented from being tangled and the hair to be washed Comfort of the person can be improved.
In FIG. A4, the upper nozzle link 11 is caused to repeat the above movement twice.
Next, referring to FIG. A5, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 so as to repeatedly move between the top position T1 and the occipital position T2, and repeatedly moves between the hair position T3 and the lower occipital position T4. The lower nozzle link 12 is moved. During the movement, the microcomputer 89 ejects cleaning water from both nozzle links.

Next, referring to FIG. A6, the microcomputer 89 controls the upper nozzle link 11 as follows.
That is, first, the upper nozzle link 11 is moved to the top position T1, and the upper nozzle link 11 is temporarily stopped. During the temporary stop, the microcomputer 89 controls the inverter 64 and the like, and injects cleaning water from the upper nozzle link 11 to the point PU1 while switching the level of the injection pressure at intervals of 0.5 seconds. Switching between high and low is performed so that the injection pressure is high and low twice. In this embodiment, the microcomputer 89 is configured so that the level of the injection pressure when the injection pressure is high is level 8, and the level of the injection pressure when the injection pressure is low is level 5. Control the injection pressure. Thereafter, the microcomputer 89 causes the upper nozzle link 11 to inject cleaning water while switching the level of the injection pressure at intervals of 1 second. The switching between high and low is performed so that the high state and the low state each come once.
In this way, when the wash water is sprayed while the spray pressure level is switched at a predetermined interval with respect to a part having the head of the person to be washed, the feeling that the part is rubbed with strength by hand. Can be given to the user.
In particular, in the present embodiment, the level of the injection pressure is switched during the temporary stop of the upper nozzle link 11, and therefore, during this temporary stop, the washing water flows while switching the level of the spray pressure with respect to the same portion of the head. Will be injected. For this reason, it is possible to give the hair-washed person a stronger sense that the portion is rubbed with strength by hand.
Here, in the case of massaging massage manually, an operation of massaging massage is usually performed with intervals gradually applied. And in this embodiment, the time which switches the level of injection pressure becomes long, so that the time which injects washing water passes. Thus, it is possible to give the hair-washed person a feeling that the portion where the washing water is sprayed is manually squeezed.

Further, the microcomputer 89 temporarily stops the upper nozzle link 11 at a position corresponding to the point PU1, then cancels the temporary stop, and lowers the upper nozzle link 11 until reaching the position where the washing water is sprayed to the point PU2. After moving in the direction, the upper nozzle link 11 is temporarily stopped at the position corresponding to the point PU2, and the washing water is sprayed while switching the level of the spraying pressure as in the position corresponding to the point PU1. In this way, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 from the position corresponding to PU1 to the position corresponding to PU5, and temporarily stops the upper nozzle link 11 at each of the positions corresponding to PU1 to PU5. The washing water is jetted while switching the jet pressure level during the temporary stop.
According to this, it is possible to give the hair-washed person a feeling that the plurality of parts of the head of the hair-washed person are scolded with strength by hand.
In FIG. A7, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. A3 is performed.

FIG. 8B is a diagram for explaining the first rinsing step.
This first rinsing step is a step for flowing dirt attached to the hair with washing water that does not contain a shampoo liquid or a conditioner liquid before the next shampooing process.
In the first rinsing process, the injection pressure is controlled so that the average value of the injection pressure level is lower than the average value in the shampoo process and the average value in the conditioner process, as in the relaxation process. Thus, the person to be washed is made more accustomed to the fact that the washing water is sprayed on the head.

In FIG. B1, the same operation as that described in FIG. A1 is performed.
Next, referring to FIG. B2, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 so as to repeatedly move between the top position T1 and the occipital position T2 while jetting cleaning water, and also moves the upper posterior position from the hair position T3. The lower nozzle link 12 is moved so as to repeatedly move between T4. During the operation, the microcomputer 89 makes the jet pressure of the cleaning water when the upper nozzle link 11 is moving downward higher than the jet pressure of the cleaning water when moving upward. Similarly, the microcomputer 89 increases the washing water injection pressure when the lower nozzle link 12 is designated to move downward, higher than the washing water injection pressure when the lower nozzle link 12 is moving upward.

Next, referring to FIG. B3, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 to the head top position T1, and then sprays the cleaning water, while the cleaning water is sprayed on the portion corresponding to the range H1. The reciprocating range (hereinafter simply referred to as “range H1”; the same applies to the ranges H2 to H9) is reciprocated four times. Thereafter, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 downward, and then makes four reciprocations within the range H2 while spraying the cleaning water. Thus, the microcomputer 89 reciprocates the upper nozzle link 11 four times while injecting the cleaning water in each of the ranges H1 to H4. Thereby, in each of the ranges H1 to H4, the wash water is intensively jetted, and dirt attached to the hair can be flowed more reliably in each of these ranges.
In FIG. B4, the same operation as that described in FIG. A4 is performed.

FIG. 8C is a diagram for explaining a shampoo process.
This shampooing process is a process of washing the hair of the person to be washed with the washing water containing the shampoo solution. The microcomputer 89 controls the shampoo pump 38 to mix the shampoo liquid into the cleaning water.
In this shampoo process, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 at a higher speed than in the above-described relaxation process. Thereby, an appropriate stimulus can be given to the person to be washed to make it feel comfortable, and the hair can be washed efficiently.
Further, in the shampoo process, the injection pressure is controlled so that the average value of the injection pressure level is higher than in the relaxation process, the conditioner process, the rinsing process, and the like. In this way, compared to other processes, by giving a strong stimulus to the hair-washed person, the interval at which the massage is performed is made to stand out and the massage peak is recognized, and the hair-washed person Improve comfort. In the present embodiment, the microcomputer 89 controls the injection pressure so that the average value of the injection pressure level in the shampoo process becomes level 9.
In FIG. C1, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. A6 is performed, and in FIG. C2, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. A5 is performed.

  Next, referring to FIG. C3, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 to the top position T1, and then, as shown by the arrow G, sprays the washing water containing the shampoo liquid for a predetermined distance. Just move it down. Thereafter, as indicated by an arrow H, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 upward by a distance shorter than the predetermined distance while spraying the cleaning water containing the shampoo liquid. Here, the microcomputer 89 makes the jet pressure of the cleaning water when moving in the arrow G direction higher than the jet pressure of the cleaning water when moving in the arrow H direction. The microcomputer 89 repeatedly performs the above-described operation until the upper nozzle link 11 reaches the occipital position T2. Similarly, after moving the lower nozzle link 12 to the hair position T3, the microcomputer 89 causes the lower nozzle link 12 to perform the same operation as the upper nozzle link 11 described above until reaching the lower occipital position T4. As described above, the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 move, so that the washing water containing the shampoo liquid spreads over the entire head of the person to be washed, and the washing water spreads to the base of the hair.

Next, with reference to FIG. C4, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 to the head top position T1, and then sprays the washing water, and within the range H5 corresponding to the narrow range in the head of the person being washed. Is reciprocated several times. Here, the narrow range in the head of the person to be washed is defined as a range of 0.5 cm to 3 cm in the vertical direction (in this embodiment, about 2 cm), and the washing water reciprocates in this range. It will be injected. In the present embodiment, the microcomputer 89 makes the upper nozzle link 11 reciprocate for 2 seconds so that the washing water is reciprocated and jetted in a range of about 2 cm in the head. At that time, the microcomputer 89 relatively increases the jet pressure of the cleaning water and relatively increases the moving speed of the upper nozzle link 11. In the present embodiment, the microcomputer 89 controls the level of the injection pressure to level 8.
In this way, the washing water with high spray pressure is ejected from the upper nozzle link 11 that reciprocates at a high speed with respect to a narrow range in the head, so that appropriate stimulation can be given to the part, and the hair to be washed It is possible to give a feeling to the person that the head is being massaged by the hand. Furthermore, it is possible to realize a feeling that the itchy part of the head is scratched manually, and to improve the comfort of the person being washed.
Furthermore, compared with the relaxation process and the first rinsing process, the washing water is sprayed with a strong spray pressure, and the hair to be washed has become accustomed to spraying the washing water on the head through the relaxation process and the first rinsing process. Appropriate stimulation can be given to the person. And a to-be-washed person can acquire a strong massage feeling by feeling moderate irritation | stimulation.
Thereafter, the microcomputer 89 moves the upper nozzle link 11 downward by a predetermined distance, and performs the same operation in the range H6 as in the range H5. In this way, the microcomputer 89 reciprocates the upper nozzle link 11 a plurality of times while injecting cleaning water in each of the ranges H5 to H9. Thereby, the effect mentioned above about a plurality of different parts in a head can be produced. Further, in each of the ranges H5 to H9, washing water containing shampoo liquid is intensively jetted, and these ranges H5 to H9 can be washed with certainty.
In the present embodiment, there are five ranges H5 to H9, but the number of ranges is not limited to five, and more ranges may exist.
In FIG. C5, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. B2 is performed.

FIG. 9A is a diagram for explaining the second rinsing step.
This second rinsing step is a step for rinsing washing water containing shampoo liquid sprayed on the head and remaining on the head and hair in the shampooing step.
In the second rinsing step, the injection pressure is controlled so that the average value of the injection pressure level is lower than the average value in the shampoo step. In the present embodiment, the average value of the injection pressure level in the second rinsing process is controlled to be level 8.

In FIG. D1, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. A3 is performed, in FIG. D2, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. B2 is performed, and in FIG. D3, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. Is done.
Next, with reference to FIG. D4, the microcomputer 89 moves the lower nozzle link 12 to the lower occipital position T4, and then, as shown by an arrow I, upwards a predetermined distance while jetting cleaning water. Move. Thereafter, as indicated by an arrow J, the microcomputer 89 moves the lower nozzle link 12 downward by a distance shorter than the predetermined distance while jetting cleaning water. At that time, the microcomputer 89 makes the spray pressure of the cleaning water when moving the lower nozzle link 12 downward higher than the spray pressure of the cleaning water when moving upward. The microcomputer 89 repeatedly performs the above-described operation until the lower nozzle link 12 reaches the hair position T3.
In FIG. D5, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. C3 is performed. In FIG. D6, the lower nozzle link 12 operates in the same manner as that described in FIG. A5, and the upper nozzle link 11 does not inject cleaning water. In FIG. D7, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. A5 is performed. In FIG. D8, the upper nozzle link 11 operates in the same manner as that described in FIG. A6, and the lower nozzle link 12 operates in substantially the same manner as the upper nozzle link 11 in FIG. A6.

FIG. 9B is a diagram for explaining a conditioner process.
The conditioner process is a process for performing so-called conditioning by injecting wash water containing a conditioner liquid onto the head and hair of a person to be washed. The microcomputer 89 controls the conditioner pump 39 to mix the conditioner liquid into the cleaning water. The average value of the injection pressure level in the conditioner process is controlled to be lower than the average value of the injection pressure level in the shampoo process and higher than the average value of the injection pressure level in the relaxation process. In the present embodiment, the microcomputer 89 controls the average value of the injection pressure level in the conditioner process to be level 8.
In FIG. E1, the same operation as that described in FIG. A3 is performed. In FIG. E2, the upper nozzle link 11 performs an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. A4, and the lower nozzle link 12 operates substantially the same as the upper nozzle link 11 in FIG. A4. In FIG. E3, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. C3 is performed, and in FIG. E4, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. B2 is performed.

FIG. 9C is a diagram for explaining the third rinsing step.
This third rinsing step is a step for rinsing washing water containing the conditioner liquid sprayed on the head in the conditioner step and remaining on the head and hair.
In the third rinsing process, the injection pressure is controlled so that the average value of the injection pressure level is lower than the average value in the shampoo process. In the present embodiment, the average value of the injection pressure level in the second rinsing process is controlled to be level 8.

F3, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. In FIG. F4, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. C3 is performed, and in FIG. F5, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. B2 is performed.

FIG. 10A is a diagram for explaining a menthol medicine injection step.
This menthol medicine injection process is a process for injecting a menthol-type medicine to a person to be washed. In the menthol drug spraying process, the spray pressure is controlled so that the spray pressure when the drug is sprayed is lowered in order to give the hair-washed person the feeling that the menthol-based drug is sprayed gently. The For example, the injection pressure corresponding to level 6 is controlled.
Referring to FIG. G1, in FIG. G1, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. A7 is performed. At that time, the microcomputer 89 makes the movement of the upper nozzle link 11 gentle and lowers the injection pressure of the cleaning water injected from the upper nozzle link 11.
Next, referring to FIG. G2, as shown by the arrow in the figure, the microcomputer 89 controls the medicine supply pump 94, the medicine nozzle valve 95, and the like, so that the menthol-type medicine is applied to the head of the person to be washed. Let spray.
When the menthol-based drug is sprayed on the head, it can give the hair-washed person a refreshing feeling and a refreshing feeling, and the comfort of the hair-washed person is improved.

FIG. 10B is a diagram for explaining a fourth rinsing step.
The fourth rinsing step is a step for rinsing off the menthol-type drug sprayed on the hair-washed person and remaining on the hair and head of the hair-washed person in the menthol drug spraying process.
Referring to FIG. H1, in FIG. H1, an operation similar to the operation described in FIG. A4 is performed. At that time, the microcomputer 89 gradually lowers the spray water pressure of the cleaning water. As a result, the person to be washed is made to recognize that a series of operations related to automatic hair washing ends.

As described above, in this embodiment, an automatic hair washer equipped with an upper nozzle link 11 and a lower nozzle link 12 for injecting wash water toward the head inside the sink 2 that houses the head of the person to be washed. 1 includes a microcomputer 89 that switches between high and low injection pressures of cleaning water injected by the upper and lower nozzle links 11 and 12 at a predetermined interval.
According to this, by spraying the wash water while switching the level of the spray pressure at a predetermined interval on the head of the person to be washed, the place where the wash water is sprayed is rubbed with strength manually It can give a sense of That is, during automatic hair washing, it is possible to give a sense that the head is being massaged by a hand to the person being washed.

Moreover, in this embodiment, the microcomputer 89 lengthens the space | interval which switches the level of injection pressure, so that the time which injects washing water passes.
Here, in the case of massaging massage manually, an operation of massaging massage is usually performed with intervals gradually applied.
And according to the said structure, as the time which injects washing water passes, the space | interval which switches the level of injection pressure becomes long, and the location where the washing | cleaning water is injected is squeezed by hand Can be given more strongly to the user.

Further, in the present embodiment, the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 are configured to be movable in a state where the cleaning water is jetted, and after the upper and lower nozzle links 11 and 12 are moved within a predetermined range, they are temporarily stopped. The microcomputer 89 performs control so as to repeatedly perform the operation, and the microcomputer 89 switches the injection pressure level of the cleaning water sprayed by the upper and lower nozzle links 11 and 12 at a predetermined interval during the temporary stop.
According to this, control is performed to repeatedly perform the operation of temporarily stopping the upper and lower nozzle links 11 and 12 after being moved within a predetermined range, and the level of the washing water injection pressure is increased at predetermined intervals during the temporary stop. Therefore, it is possible to give the hair-washed person a feeling that the plurality of parts of the head of the hair-washed person are rubbed with strength by hand.

Further, in this embodiment, the upper nozzle link 11 is configured to be able to repeatedly move from the top position T1 to the occipital position T2 in a state where the cleaning water is jetted. The washing water injection pressure when moving in the direction (downward) from the top position T1 toward the occipital position T2, and the washing water injection pressure when moving in the direction (upward) from the occipital position T2 toward the top position T1 Higher than.
Here, when the upper nozzle link 11 is moving in the downward direction, the wash water is sequentially sprayed in the same direction as the hair grows on the head of the person to be washed. On the other hand, when the upper nozzle link 11 is moving in the upward direction, the washing water is sequentially sprayed on the head of the person to be washed in the direction opposite to the direction in which the hair grows.
In addition, when massaging the head with human hands, in order to achieve a smooth massage according to the direction of hair growth, it is usually in the same direction as the direction of hair growth, rather than rubbing in the direction opposite to the direction of hair growth. If you rub, you have a stronger craving power.
According to the above configuration, when the upper nozzle link 11 is moving downward, that is, when the washing water is sequentially jetted in the same direction as the hair grows, the injection pressure is increased upward. When 11 is moving, that is, compared to the spray pressure in the case where the wash water is sequentially sprayed in the direction opposite to the direction in which the hair grows, the pressure becomes higher. For this reason, during the automatic hair washing, it is possible to give the hair-washed person the feeling of being massaged manually.
Furthermore, according to the above configuration, since the spraying pressure when sequentially spraying the washing water in the direction opposite to the direction in which the hair grows is weak, the reverse hair state is unlikely to occur, and the hair can be prevented from being tangled. Comfort can be improved.

In addition, the automatic hair washer 1 according to the present embodiment, from the hair position T3 corresponding to the hair that hangs down from the head stored in the sink 2 to the lower occipital position T4 corresponding to the occipital region in a state where the washing water is jetted. The lower nozzle link 12 is configured to be able to move repeatedly between them. The lower nozzle link 12 is configured to move in the direction from the hair position T3 to the lower occipital position T4 in synchronization with the movement of the upper nozzle link 11 in the direction from the parietal position T1 to the occipital position T2. At the same time, the upper nozzle link 11 is configured to move in the direction from the lower occipital position T4 to the hair position T3 in synchronization with the movement from the occipital position T2 to the top position T1.
According to this, the lower nozzle link 12 moves in the direction from the hair position T3 to the lower occipital position T4 in synchronization with the movement of the upper nozzle link 11 in the direction from the top position T1 to the occipital position T2. Since the upper nozzle link 11 is configured to move in the direction from the lower occipital position T4 to the hair position T3 in synchronization with the movement in the direction from the occipital position T2 to the parietal position T1, the upper During the movement of the nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12, it is possible to ensure that these nozzle links do not contact.
Here, for example, the upper nozzle link 11 moves in the same direction as the hair grows while spraying the cleaning water, while the lower nozzle link 12 moves in the opposite direction to the hair grows while spraying the cleaning water, etc. When the movement directions of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 with respect to the direction in which the hair grows are different, the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 each have their hair washed from different directions with respect to the direction in which the hair grows. The cleaning water will be sprayed on the person's head and hair, which may cause the hair to become tangled.
However, as described above, since the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 are configured to move synchronously, the movement directions of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12 with respect to the direction in which the hair grows are determined. It is possible to prevent the occurrence of a situation where the hairs are always tangled and tangled.
Furthermore, during the movement of the upper nozzle link 11 and the lower nozzle link 12, it is possible to ensure that these nozzle links do not contact.

Further, in the present embodiment, the microcomputer 89 applies the washing water injection pressure from the lower occipital position T4 to the hair when the lower nozzle link 12 moves in the direction (downward) from the hair position T3 toward the lower occipital position T4. It is made higher than the spraying pressure of the washing water when moving in the direction (upward) toward the position T3.
According to this configuration, for the same reason as the upper nozzle link 11 described above, also in the lower nozzle link 12, it is possible to give a sense of being massaged by hand during automatic hair washing to the hair-washed person. Furthermore, the reverse hair state is unlikely to occur, and the hair can be prevented from being tangled, and the comfort of the user to be washed can be improved.

Further, in this embodiment, the microcomputer 89 reciprocates the upper nozzle link 11 in a state in which the cleaning water is sprayed so that the cleaning water is reciprocated in a predetermined range defined to 3 cm or less at the head. Move.
According to this, the washing water is reciprocated and sprayed on a narrow range in the head of the person to be washed. Thereby, a moderate irritation | stimulation can be given to the said site | part and the sense that the said site | part is massaging by the hand of the said site | part can be given to a to-be-washed person.
The same can be said for the lower nozzle link 12.

In this embodiment, the macro computer 89 reciprocates the upper nozzle link 11 and then moves the upper nozzle link 11 by a predetermined distance so that the cleaning water is reciprocated and sprayed in a narrow range in the head. Then, the upper nozzle link 11 is reciprocated again so that the cleaning water is reciprocated and sprayed to a range other than the range.
According to this configuration, it is possible to give an appropriate stimulus to a plurality of different ranges, and it is possible to give the sensation that each of the ranges has a head massaged by a hand.

In addition, the automatic hair washer 1 according to the present embodiment includes a head support net 70 that supports the back of the head of the hair-washed person with the neck of the hair-washed person in a supine posture facing the inside of the sink. The spraying pressure of the cleaning water sprayed to the head at the position where the support net 70 is located is set higher than the spraying pressure of the cleaning water sprayed to the head where the head support net 70 is not present.
According to this, since the jet pressure of the cleaning water sprayed to the head at a position where the head support net 70 is located is higher than the jet pressure injected to the head at a position where the head support net 70 is not, the head support net 70. It is possible to prevent the washing water from being jetted weakly to the head at the position where the head support net 70 is located due to the presence of the head.

The above-described embodiment is merely an aspect of the present invention, and can be arbitrarily modified and applied within the scope of the present invention.
For example, in the above-described embodiment, an example of the operation related to automatic hair washing by the automatic hair washing machine 1 has been described with reference to FIGS. 7 to 10, but the operation related to automatic hair washing is not limited to that described.
Moreover, the structure of the medicine injection mechanism 90 is not limited to the structure described in the above-described embodiment, and may be a structure in which, for example, a menthol-based medicine is injected from the upper nozzle link 11 or the lower nozzle link 12.
