Abstract

The present invention relates to a comb through blow dryer for straightening and detangling hair comprising: a filter at a first end of the blow dryer; a heated blow dryer, where the heated blow dryer draws air through the filter for heating and transfers heated air through the dryer assembly; a metal comb, where the comb includes a base extension that extends through the dryer assembly and attaches to the first end of the blow dryer; a plurality of heating coils, where said plurality of heating coils surround the base extension along the length thereof; and a means to supply power to the blow dryer. In one exemplary embodiment, the means to supply power includes a power cord that is capable of supplying AC power to the blow dryer.

Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of Invention
  • The present invention relates to a blow dryer that may be utilized to detangle and straighten curly or coarse hair.
  • 2. Description of Related Art
  • Many hairstylists use various hairstyling devices to groom and style hair such as brushes, curlers, crimpers, hair blowers, straightening combs and other devices. Many people with naturally curly or coarse hair desire to detangle, straighten and modify their natural hairstyle in order to suit a desired hairstyle.
  • Many times the straightening of tangled hair involves brushing, combing and using heated blow dryers. The use of a handheld blow dryer to straighten hair has been an acknowledged technique used for many years. Blow-dry straightening normally involves the use a comb attachment with multiple rows of teeth. The heat generated by the blow dryer transfers over the comb and is applied directly to the hair as the comb moves through the hair. Using a blow dryer requires a significant amount of heat in order to have the desired results of straightening and detangling coarse hair. The heat generated by a blow dryer may be sufficient if a sufficient amount of wattage is used for the motor within the hair dryer. One drawback to using the high-powered hair dryers that generate a significant amount of heat is that the plastic attachments that are used for combs occasionally cannot hold up to the application of such high heat. The user of a high powered blow dryer therefore must use multiple combs or seek other means of hair straightening such as the use of chemical relaxers or heated straightening combs.
  • A design for a blow dryer that can withstand the heat generated by a high-wattage blow dryer but yet provide a substantial comb attachment to withstand the heat is therefore needed. In order for a blow dryer to be effective to comb, straighten and detangle hair, sufficient heat must be used.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to a comb through blow dryer for straightening and detangling hair comprising: a filter at a first end of the blow dryer; a heated blow dryer, where the heated blow dryer draws air through the filter for heating and transfers heated air through the dryer assembly; a metal comb, where the comb includes a base extension that extends through the dryer assembly and attaches to the first end of the blow dryer; a plurality of heating coils, where said plurality of heating coils surround the base extension along the length thereof; and a means to supply power to the blow dryer. In one exemplary embodiment, the means to supply power includes a power cord that is capable of supplying AC power to the blow dryer. The comb through blow dryer may include a handle and an on/off trigger along the handle. The metal comb and base extension may be made of steel, aluminum or copper.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DRAWINGS
  • FIG. 1 depicts a comb-through blow dryer according to the present invention.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • The present invention relates to a comb-through blow dryer that provides sufficient heat to straighten and detangle curly or coarse hair. The present invention utilizes a high-powered blow dryer motor with sufficient wattage where the dryer blows hot air over a metal comb. The blow dryer along with heating coils heat comb to a sufficient temperature to effectively straighten and detangle hair.
  • FIG. 1 depicts a comb-through blow dryer 100 according to the present invention. The blow dryer 100 according to the present invention includes a metal comb attachment 20. The metal comb 20 includes a plurality of teeth 22 utilized to comb through hair. The metal comb 20 further includes a base extension 23 that extends through the interior of the blow dryer 100. Heating coils 15 surround and extend along the base extension 23 and provide a means to radiate heat that transfers through and along the base extension 23 into the metal comb 20. In addition to heating coils 15, a heated blow dryer 18 is positioned at the proximal end of the base's extension 23. The blow dryer 18 pulls air through filter 25 and heats the air that flows over the heating coils 15 and the metal comb 20. Over a period of time the metal comb 20 absorbs and radiates the heat provided by the blow dryer 18. Because the comb 20 and base extension 23 are made of metal they are able to retain and absorb a sufficient amount of heat to provide an effective tool to straighten and detangle coarse hair.
  • The blow dryer 100 further includes a power cord 32 that may be connected to an AC outlet to provide a source of electrical power to operate the blow dryer 100. Blow dryer 100 also includes an on/off trigger 27 that is along a handle 28. The metal comb 20 and base extension 23 may be made of a metal as stated above. Suitable metals for the construction of the metal comb may include steel, aluminum, copper or other composite metals that are able to retain and sustain the heat transfer generated by the blow dryer 18 and the heating coils 15.
  • The blow dryer 100 provides an efficient and effective dry blowing and straightening device to straighten curly or coarse hair. The blow dryer 100 is able to generate sufficient heat that is retained in the metal comb 20 and therefore sufficient to straighten coarse or dense hair to achieve a straight detangled look. The blow dryer 100 further has advantages over traditional blow dryers due to the use of the metal comb 20 and base extension 23 that are able to sustain high temperatures and retain sufficient heat for application on the client's hair. Further, the metal comb 20 provides a permanent attachment that is easy to use and reduces time in hairstyling of coarse hair. The instant invention has been shown and described in what it considers to be the most practical and preferred embodiments. It is recognized, however, that departures may be made there from within the scope of the invention and that obvious modifications will occur to a person skilled in the art.
