19 Claims. (Cl. 128-65) This invention relates to a device for use in barber or beauty shops, whereby the customer may have a shampoo and hair treatment as desired, as the shampoo and/or solutions are stored in the device for selective use by the customer or by an operator, and the shampooing and/or treating the hair may be done in a continuous operation without movingthe customer from place to place, or from operating station to operating station.

Heretofore a great deal of expensive space and equipment was required to wash and treat the hair and scalp, to apply shampoo, waving lotion, neutralizing solution, color rinses, dyes and the like.

The present device can be used to carry out all these steps, thus utilizing one operating station, with much greater convenience to the operator and with less fatigue to the customer.

An object of this invention is to provide a machine for applying a multiplicity of solutions to the hair and scalp, and to apply, at the same time, a massaging action to substantially the entire scalp.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device wherein the patron can receive multiple operations to the hair and scalp, while in a reclining position.

Yet another object of the invention is to provide a device wherein the patron may selectively control the operation of the device, as well as the temperature of the water provided thereby.

A still further object of the invention is to provide a shampoo and solution applying device, wherein the shampoo and solution applying elements are adjustable.

A further object of the invention is to provide means whereby washing and/ or treating thehair and scalp can be performed without soiling the clothing of the patron, without the use of a vast number of towels, as has heretofore been necessary, and wherein the desired solution may be selected and used, or more than one treatment may be applied, while the patron remains at a single station, and without the other customers being aware of the type of treatment being received.

A further object of this invention is to provide a device for applying solutions to the head, whereby the back of the head receives as much treatment, solution and massage as the usually more accessible portions of the head, and wherein one bowl can be used for any number of solutions.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device for applying any number of solutions to the hair of the patron, but which device may be charged once a day, thus saving much time on the part of the operator, and much equipment, such as numerous bulk container bottles and individual application bottles.

Another object of the invention is to provide a device for applying solutions to the hair and scalp of the patron, without the hands of the operator coming in contact with such solutions.

Yet another object of this invention is to provide controls for a shampoo and solution applying apparatus whereby the patron may operate such controls for as that when the cover Patented Oct. 7, 1958 long or as short a time as desired, without requiring the attention of an operator.

A still further object of this invention is to provide an apparatus whereby all solutions may be warmed before being applied to the head, and whereby the face of the patron is protected from the odors and fumes of strong solutions, such as permanent wave solution.

With these objects in mind and others that will become manifest as the description proceeds, reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings in which like reference characters designate like parts in the several views thereof, in which:

Fig. 8 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 8-8 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction indicated by the arrowsjand 1 Fig. 9 is a diagrammatic, perspective view showing the operating mechanism, the piping diagram, and the electrical diagram.

With more detailed reference to the drawing, the numeral 1 designates a wall on which the treatment device, designated generally by the numeral 2, is mounted by means of screws 4, or other suitable means. A housing 6 is divided into compartments, the compartment 8 in which the individual to receive treatment positions the head, and the compartment 10 in which the drive mechanism is located. A cover 12 is hinged to housing 6 by means of hinge members 14, and which cover 12 has outstanding arm 16 secured thereto as by a bracket 18, which arm 16 has an upstanding lever 20 thereon. A spring 22 is connected between the wall 1 and lever 20,

so as to counterbalance the weight of the cover 12 and arm 16.

The housing 6 has an opening at the forward end thereof to receive the neck of the patron, around which opening a gasket material 24, which is of soft rubber, is affixed. The cover 12 has a complementary opening formed therein which 12 is in closed position the gaskets 24 and 26 fit closely about the neck, face and forehead of the head H, so that the solutions will be confined within the compartment 8, as will be more fully brought out hereinafter.

Solution tanks 28 and 30 are shown to be mounted. on housing 6 above compartment 10. While two such.

has fixed thereto a gasket 26, so-

tanks are shown, to simplify the illustration, it is to be understood that any number of solution-tanks, similar to the tank 28 may be provided, one for each solution that is to be dispensed into the compartment 8, and as many tanks 30 provided, as are necessary to dispense solutions directly into thepiping system, designated generally at 32, which leads from the tank 30 through the various branch conduits to the respective applicators 34, 36, and 38-38, as will be more'fully explained hereinafter.

The applicator 34 is mounted on a screw-threaded member 40 which member projects through the bottom of housing 6 into compartment 8, and has a crank 42 or the like thereon by whichto raise and lower the applicator 34 to correctly position the head H within compartment 8. The applicator. 34 is mounted for oscillation about the upper end of screw-threaded member 40. The applicator .34 has two systems of passages formed therein and therethrough,as will be explained more in detail hereinafter.

A tank, such as illustrated at 30 is provided with the desired solution which is discharged through remote control valve 44, such as a solenoid actuated valve 44, into flexible hose connection 46, thence through pipe system 32, which system comprises pipes 48, pipe and hoses 52 and 54 to the respective applicators 36, 34, and 38-38. The hose 54 connects with conduits 56 which abridge the head H and are made of resilient material such as hard rubber, plastic or metal, so as to cause the applicators 3838 to be in binding engagement with the head H.

The applicator or head rest 34 has a second set of passages 64 therein which pass solution into the lower recessed portion of compartment 8 into drainage pipe 66, in event the magnetic control valve 68 is open. In event the magnetic control valve 68 is closed, the solution will be retained in the lower portion of compartment 8 until such time as the level thereof reaches the upstanding overflow pipe 70, whereupon the solution will drain through pipe 70 into drain pipe 66 at a point below magnetic control valve 68. A conduit 72 connects with passages 58 and extends outward to connect with flexible hose 52, which hose 52 connects with pipe 50. The lower end of pipe 50 is closed and has a bifurcated extension 51 thereon which straddles an outwardly extending pipe or conduit 72.

A motor 74 is mounted on the wall of compartment 10 and has a V-belt pulley 76 thereon. A V-belt 78 passes over V-belt pulley 76 and V-belt pulley 80 which is mounted on and secured to shaft 82. The shaft 82 is journalled in bearings 84. The shaft 82 is ofi-set to form a crank 86, which crank connects through a pitman 88 to a pivot pin 90 which is attached to one of the conduits 56, which conduits are secured to a sleeve bearing 92, so as to impart oscillating motion thereto, which rocks the conduits about pipe 48 as a pivot point, so as to actuate the massage elements 38, which are positioned on either side of the head H. A crank 94 is provided on V-belt pulley 80 and connects with an out' standing lever 96 by a pitman 98. The lever 96 is secured to pipe 48 to which massage applicator 36 is secured. A plug 100 closes the outer end of pipe 48 so as to enable the pipe 48 to be used for the dual purpose of conveying solution therethrough, and as a pivot point on which the applicator 36 rocks to apply a massaging action to the top of the head H. The-pipe or hollow shaft 48 is journaled in bearings 102 and 104 which admit rocking action thereof together with a longitudinal movement, to enable the applicator to be maintained in contact relation with the top of the head H. A spring 106 is attachably secured, at one end, to the pipe 48 and the other end is attached to a cable 108, which cable is secured to a spool 109 mounted within a bracket 110. A shaft 112 is secured to the spool and extendsto the exterior of housing 6 and has a crank 114 on the upper end thereof. A ratchet wheel 116 is secured to the shaft 112 and is engageable by a pawl 118 so as to hold the spool 109 in the correct adjusted position to apply the correct tension to spring 106, which in turn, will move massage element applicator 36 into proper contact with the top of the head H.

A flexible hot water supply conduit 120 and a flexible cold water supply conduit 122 converge at a mixing valve 124, so as to furnish water of the correct temperature to the water pipe 126. A valve 128 is provided in pipe 126 to regulate the supply of water leading into flexible conduit 130, which conduit 130 connects with pipe 48 at a point near the rear end of the pipe 48 and rearward of the hose connection 46, so upon the flowing of water into pipe 48, solution will be drawn from tank 30 into pipe 48, hoses 52 and 54 to the applicators 34, 36, and 38----38.

A pump 132, preferably of the centrifugal type, is driven by a motor 134 to direct solution from the bottom of the compartment 8 out through hose 136 into pipe 48 ahead of water supply conduit 130, and with the solution, which may contain water, shampoo, tint rinse, Wave set solution, neutralizer or the like, is circulated through pipe 48 into applicators 34, 36 and 3838 in a manner as hereinbefore set out, until the desired result is obtained, and the applicators may be actuated to simultaneously give a massage, or if desired, the solution may be applied without the massaging movement of the applicators.

The solution tank 28 has an electro-magnetic control valve v138 in the lower portion thereof, which control valve discharges into compartment 8 for mixing with 1 water or other solutions therein.

The arm 16 extends forward and has an inturned arm 17 on which a control panel 140 .is mounted. The control panel has switches 142, 144, 146 and 148, and

mounted thereon.

Electro-magnetic switch 142 is provided to control solenoid valve 44 on tank 30. The switch 144 controls solenoid valve 136 on tank 28, and the motor control switches 146 and 148 control the motors 74 and 134, respectively. A double throw switch 150 is provided for controlling the double solenoid drain valve 68. The switches are preferably positioned immediately forward of the individual receiving treatment, so that the individual may readily operate these switches.

A handle 152 is provided beneath the inwardly extending arm 17 to enable the patron to raise and lower the cover 12. A latch member 154 is provided on the cover 12 to engage a keeper 156 when the cover is in lowered position. A spring 158 holds the latch 154 in engagement with the pin until release cable 160 is manually operated by control handle 162 positioned on arm 17 within reach of the patron.

Operation With the cover 12 in raised position, the cover will be so maintained by means of spring 22, until the individual to receive the treatment, reclines on a suitable reclining chair or couch (not shown), until the body is in a substantially supine position, face up and with the head adjusted to lie on the applicator 34, as will best be seen in Fig. 1, and with the crank 114 adjusting the correct tension of spring 106 to apply the desired thrust to applicator 36, and with applicators 38-38 positioned incontact relation with the sides of the head H, the cover 12 may then be lowered. The gasket 24 is insubstantially close fitting relation with the neck of the individual to receive treatment, an operator or the individual in the machine grips handle 152 to lower the cover 12 until latch 154 engages beneath keeper 156, which holds gasket 26 on cover 12 in relatively close fitting relation with the head H about the face and forehead, whereupon, the treatment, such as shampooing or massaging 5 the scalp, or applying the desired solution to the hair and scalp is ready to begin.

If it is desired to shampoo the hair, the mixing valve 124 is manually adjusted until the correct temperature of water is obtained, whereupon, the valve 128 is manually opened to supply the needed volume of water through hose 130 to pipe 48. The water is then directed into pipe 50 and into hoses 52 and 54, which hoses direct the water or solution respectively into the pipes 56 and 72. Eachof the applicators 34, 36 and 38-38 have passages 58, 60 and 62 respectively therein, which direct the water and/ or solution out through the orifices which are preferably formed in fingers made on the inner face of the respective applicators. The applicators are so contoured as to be substantially the shape of the portion of the head on which they are to operate, however these applicators are made of yieldable material such as rubber or synthetic rubber so they will conform to irregularities in the shape of the particular head to which treatment is being given. With the water or solution being thus applied, the switch 146 is closed which starts motor 74, which motor drives through a beltto a pulley 80 to drive cranks 86 and 94 which are connected to conduit 56 and lever 96. The lever 96 is secured to pipe 48 and oscillates applicator 36, which is made integral therewith. The pipe 50 is secured to pipe 48 and rocks with the pipe through an oscillating movement. The pipe 50 is closed at its lower end and has a bifurcated extension 51 thereon which straddles the laterally positioned extension 73 on conduit or pipe 72, which extension is preferably resiliently covered to minimize noise. As the applicator 36 rotates through an arcuate movement, the pipe 48 being the axis, the pipe 50 will oscillate pipe 72 about an axis formed by pivotal connection about the axis of the screw 40, and with this motion being transmitted to the applicator 34 and applicator 36, the crank 86 transmits an oscillating movement to conduit 56 so as to move applicators 38-38 through an arcuate movement, as shown in Fig. 7, so as to massage the sides of the head H.

It is preferable to have the crank 86 and the crank 94 timed one hundred eighty degrees apart so there will be a minimum of twisting action on the head of the individual receiving treatment.

If it is desired to introduce a solution, such asliquid shampoo, into the pipe system to be conveyed to the head and massaged into the hair, switch 142 is closed, which will open solenoid valve 44 to direct the solution, such as liquid shampoo, directly from tank 30 through hose 46 into pipe 48 to be conveyed to the applicators 34, 36, and 3838, as hereinbefore set out. This solution may either be entrained in the water, by keeping valve 128 open, or by closing valve 128, the full strength of the solution may be applied directly to the hair and head. While only a single tank 30 has been shown as connecting with pipe 48, it is to be understood that any desired solution may be put into the tank, such as waving lotion, neutralizer, or the like, or a plurality of tanks may be provided, each connecting with the pipe 48, to enable any number of solutions to be selectively conveyed to the pipe 48 upon the closing of the proper switch.

A drain valve 68 in the lower portion of compartment 8 may be selectively opened or closed by double throw switch 150. If it is desired to recirculate the solution, the drain valve 68 is closed by the closing of switch 150 in such manner as to energize solenoid 69 or the valve 68 may be opened by moving the switch into position to energize solenoid 69a. With the valve 68 in closed position, the solution is trapped in the lower portion of compartment 8. A riser 71, which may be removable and of any desired height, is positioned within drain pipe 70 so as to maintain the level of the solution as indicated at S. If the solution rises to a greater height, it will drain into drain 66 below valve 68. With a supply of solution S within compartment 8, the motor 134 may be started by closing the switch 148 so as to operate pump 132 to direct solution up through hose 136 into pipe 48 to be distributed to the respective applicators 34, 36 and 38-38 and outward through orifices in the respective applicators to the head H. The solution may be recirculated for the desired length of time to accomplish the result desired, whereupon, the valve 68 may be opened to direct the residue into the drain.

Certain solutions, such as dye, tints, and the like may need to be diluted before being applied to the hair and scalp. Such solutions may be contained in a tank such as 28, which has a magnetic control valve 128 near the lower side thereof. Such solution may be directed into compartment 8 by closing switch 144 until the desired amount of solution from tank 28 is directed into the compartment 8 to be intermixed with water or other solution as desired to obtain the particular result wanted, whereupon the mixture may be recirculated by pump 142 in the manner described above, until the treatment is complete.

Warm air under pressure may be introduced through a hose, such as indicated at A, to give an initial drying action to the hair, however, it is preferable to remove the individual from the machine while the hair is still quite damp, to have it in proper condition for setting a wave by hand. When the treatment has been completed, a latch release handle 162 is moved so as to release latch 154 from keeper 156, whereupon cover 12 may be moved into raised position and thus maintained by spring 22, until such time as the machine is again put into operation.

It will be appreciated that the apparatus is easily maintained in operating condition, that it may be easily sterilized, and that the tanks need to be charged much less often, than with other methods of applying solutions to the hair, and that the device may either be operated by the patron or by an operator, or by the two cooperating.
