  • The present invention relates generally to combs and hairbrushes and more specifically it relates to a combs and hairbrushes dispenser-applicator and container of liquid, gel, cream or powders to be apply on the scalp or on the skin of hairy areas. [0001]
  • Combs and hairbrushes are common instruments in the maintenance of one hair. Typically, combs and hairbrushes, regardless of their shape or size, are constructed of having a handle, a body and bristles. [0002]
  • These devices have been constructed for the purpose of hair maintenance, they were not built for the purpose of dispensing liquid to the scalp of a balding individual. [0003]
  • The development of new creams, gels and pharmaceutical products that prevent hair loss or germinate new hair follicles has necessitated a need for developing new devices for the maintenance of ones hair or scalp. [0004]
  • Today, most dispensers or containers of cosmetic and pharmaceutical products, for the scalp and hairy areas, are in the form of a spray, tube or jar. Normally the person applies the product to the desire area with the tips of the fingers, creating a mess and a waste of product. [0005]
  • This invention will solve the problem discussed above by providing a user with a device that will dispense and apply at the same time, a liquid, gel, cream or power on the scalp of the user, while not creating the mess that was associated with the above process. [0006]
  • Information relevant to an attempt to address the above problem can be found in U.S. Pat. No. 6,539,949. However, the patent suffers from the following disadvantages: The device delivers gels to the follicles surrounding the scalp and does not contact the scalp directly. [0007]
  • For the foregoing reason, there is a need for a dispensing device that will contact the scalp of a user and dispense the product in a clean manner, while at the same time preventing the waste of the product. [0008]
  • SUMMARY
  • The current invention is directed to a dispensing applicator device that delivers a product to the scalp of a user with out having to dirty ones hands or using an excess of the product. The brush dispensing and applicator device comprises a reservoir and conic bristles attached to the reservoir. The conic bristles will further contain, at the ends not contacting the reservoir a delivery means. The delivery means can be a rolling mechanism (such as the ones used in ball point pen), a cotton swab or a sponge like material that will allow for the slow delivery of the product to the scalp of the user. The delivery means will be located at the tips of the bristles thereby preventing any waste of product delivered to the scalp of the user. The device can further have a handle attached to the reservoir. [0009]
  • A primary object of the present invention is to provide a dispensing applicator device for any product designed to be applied to the scalp or the skin of hairy areas of the user without dirtying ones hand or unduly wasting the product. [0010]
  • Another object is to provide a dispensing applicator device that will massage the scalp of the user without causing undue aggravation to the scalp. [0011]
  • Yet another object is to provide a re-useable container that can be refilled with different products for the treatment of the scalp or other hairy areas. [0012]
  • Other objects and advantages of the present invention will be come obvious to the reader and it is intended that these objects and advantages are within the scope of the present invention. [0013]
  • Before explaining the invention in detail, it is to be understood that the invention is not limited in its application to the details of construction and to the arrangements of the component set forth in the following description or illustrated in the drawings. The invention is capable of other embodiments and of being practiced and carried out in various ways. Also, it is to be understood that the phraseology and terminology employed herein are for the purpose of the description and should not be regarded as limiting.[0014]
  • DRAWINGS
  • These and other features, aspects, and advantages of the present invention will become better understood with regard to the following description, appended claims, and drawings where: [0015]
  • FIG. 1 shows a perspective view of the dispensing applicator device; [0016]
  • FIG. 2. shows a perspective view of another version of the dispensing applicator device; [0017]
  • FIG. 3. shows a side view of the bristles of the above device contacting the scalp of a user; and [0018]
  • FIG. 4. shows three different types of bristle/delivery combinations that could be used with this device. [0019]
  • DESCRIPTION
  • As shown in FIG. 1, a brush dispensing applicator device for the delivery of a product to the scalp or the skin of any hairy area of the user comprises a first reservoir [0020] 10 having at least two holes on one side of the reservoir, a plurality of conic bristles 12 having a first 12 a and a second 12 b opening, wherein each conic bristle 12 has the first opening 12 a attach to the immediate areas surrounding each hole of the first reservoir 10, and a plurality of delivery means 14 for delivering the product to an outside surface, wherein each delivery means 14 is attached or ingrained in the second opening 12 b of each conical bristle 12.
  • The first reservoir [0021] 10 can be of any shape, so long as the first reservoir 10 can have one of the sides of the first reservoir 10 contain sufficient surface area to allow the placement of the conic bristles 12 in an effective manner, those in the art of hair brushes are aware of how to place the bristles in the effective manner. In a second embodiment of the current invention, as seen in FIG. 2, the first reservoir 10 will have an receiving means 22 on one of the sides perpendicular to the side securing the conical bristles 12. The first reservoir 10 can be fabricated of any material, but preferably will be made of a material that will allow the user to apply pressure on the body of the reservoir so that the product within the first reservoir will be pressured outward toward the bristles 12, for example a soft plastic material.
  • As seen in FIG. 3, the conical bristles [0022] 12 could have three different types of delivery means 14. In a preferred embodiment of the invention, the delivery means will be the type used in ball point pens, a ball 16 shall be placed within a housing 12 c defined in the body of the second opening of the conical bristle 12 b, and the a portion of the ball shall protrude outward from the tip of the second opening of the conical bristle 12 b. Another embodiment of the present invention shall have a piece of cotton 18 attached to the second opening of the conical bristle 12 b as the delivery means. Yet another embodiment, a sponge like material (a synthetic soft porous material) shall protrude outward from the tip of the second opening of the conical bristle 12 b. Ideally, the conical bristles 12 will be fabricated from a material that will be flexible and non-porous, although the material could also be rigid. It would be preferable for the material to be flexible, for this would cause the least amount of abrasion on the scalp of the user.
  • As seen in FIG. 2, in yet another embodiment of the present invention, a second reservoir/handle [0023] 20, that defines a male attachment 20 a (similar to a hollowed bolt) on one of its ends is attached to the first reservoir receiving means 22, the first reservoir receiving means being a female receiver (a nut). The two reservoirs would attach at a position that would be perpendicular to the bristles.
  • You would use this device by pushing down the device against the scalp or the skin of hairy area of the user. The pressure created between the delivery means of the device and the scalp or the skin of the hairy area of the user will dispense the product uniformly on the scalp or the hairy area of the user. [0024]
  • As discussed previously, the advantage of this invention is that it eliminates the mess or the waste of product created by old methods of delivering products to the scalp or the skin of the hairy areas of the user. [0025]
  • another advantage of this invention is that the device massages the scalp of the user without causing undue aggravation to the scalp or the skin of the hairy areas of the user. [0026]
  • With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to include variations in size, material, shape, form, function and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships with those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specifications are intended to be encompassed by the present invention. [0027]
  • Therefore, the forgoing description is considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Further, since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur to those skilled in the art, it is not desire to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation shown and described, and accordingly, all suitable modifications and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention. [0028]
