- ed vapor, and the other a medicated solution suitable forthe treatment of the hair and scalp. Controllable means for heating the chambers are provided; also means for placing the liquid under pressure. Conduits lead from the chambers to the hair and scalp treating device provided with ports for applying the vapor and liquid to the hair and scalp.

Other objects will appear hereafter.

My invention consists of the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter de-i scribed and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings which form a part of the specification, I have illustrated a concrete embodiment of my invention, and in which Figure 1 is an elevation of the apparatus showing its use in the treatment of the hair and scalp of a patron.

Figure 2 is a vertical central cross section of the apparatus shown in Figure 1, omitting the hair and scalp treating device.

Figure 3 is a front elevation of the hair and scalp treating device.

Figure 4 is a section taken on the line 44 of Figure 3.

Figure 5 is a fractional section of a view similar to- Figure 4, showing a slightly mod ified form of the device. I

Figure 6 is a front elevation of a hair drying device. C

Figure 7 is/a section on the line 7-7 of Figure 6.

Referring to the drawings, 1 represents a housing preferably cylindrical in shape, consisting of a side wall 2 and a bottom 3. It is cm'ered by a removable lid 4.. Centrally disposed within the housing 1 is a closed vessel indicated generally by the numeral 5, which is divided by a horizontal partition 6 into an upper liquid heating chamber 7 and a lower vapor generating chamber 8. An electric heater 9 ofany preferredconstruction is disposed under the chamberS and is controlled by a switch 10 on the outside of the housing 1.. 11 and 12 indicate gauges disconnected to chambers 8 and 7 respectively, to indicate the volume of the liquid therein. A manually operated air pump 13 is disposed on the outside of the side wall 2, and communicates by means of a pipe 14: with the upper part of chamber 7. Valve controlled filling tubes 15 and 16 are connected to chambers 8 and 7 respectively, and access to the filling chambers 15- and 16 maybe had by lifting the lid 4 off the housing 1. A conduit 17 leads from the lower part of chamber 7, and another conduit 18 leads from the upper part of chamber 8. Said conduits pass through the side Wall 2 of the housing 1 and are 'connectedto fiexible'tubes 17 and 18 respectively, the outer ends of which are connected respectively, to tubes 19 and 20 which are connected in turn, to the hair and scalp treating device indicated generally by the numeral 21. Any suitable device may be used, but. I prefer to use the device shown in Figures 3 and 4. The same consists of an arcuate hollow body 22, the concave side 23 thereof being of 'a general contour to fit the shape posed on the outside of the housing 1 and of thehead. The concave side 23 is provided with a plurality of conical nozzles 24 communicatingwith the chamber 25 of the device 21. A brush 26 may be attached to one end of the device 21.

In Figure 5 I have illustrated a slightly modified form of the device indicated by the numeral 27, which, in all respects, is like the device 21 with the exception that in placeof hollow nozzles'24, finger-like projections 28 are provided on the concave side thereof; and outlet ports 29 communicating-with the hollowspace 30 are disposed between the projections 28. v

The operation is as follows: I

Chamber 8 is filled with a medicated solution V, suitable to generate a vapor for the treatment of the scalp and hair through the filling tube 14; care being taken to not entirely fill the chamber 8, but'to leave a vapor spaceabovethe liquid L. Chamber 7 is filled with amedicated liquid L through the filling pipe 16. The electric heater 9 is set in operation, which will generate vapor in chamber 8. The vapor will heat the liquid L in the chamber 7 immediately above, to a somewhat lower temperature. The liquid L is placed under pressure by the operation of the hand air pump 13 and by means of conduits 17 and 18 and the flexible conduits 17 and 18' are conveyed to the chamber 25 of the hair and scalp treating device 21. The vapor in chamber 8 and the liquid L in chamber 7, may be alternately used as desired inthe device 21. Valves 17 and 18 are provided in flexible conduits 17' and 18 respectively, to control the admission of the liquid-or the vapor to the device 21. The fluid from the outer chamber passes through the nozzles 24 to the hair and scalp. The brush 26 may be used in connection with the device 21, the operator manipulating the device 21 by holding the tubes 19 and 20 and moving the device over the hair and scalp.

After the treatment described, I dry the hair and seal by means of a dryer which is provided as ibllows:

A blower 31 operated by means of a builtin motor 32 which is controlled b a switch 33 in the side wall 2 of the houslng, forces the air through the valve controlled conduit 34 to a drying cap-35 shown in Figures 6 and 7. The drying cap 35 consists of a metal shell conforming to the shape of a head, and is provided with a nipple 36 to which a flexible conduit 37 leading from the conduit 34, is attached.

Various changes may be made in the construction and arrangement of parts by those skilled in the art, without departing from the spirit of the invention as claimed.
