W. W. BROWN HAIRDRESSIG DISPENSER Filed Dec. 9, 19344 Patented Jan. 7, `1947 UNITED STATES PATENT oFFlcE HAIRDRESSING DISPENSERr Wilson W. Brown, HollywootL-Calif.

Application December 9, 194:4,v Serial No. 567,469 1o claims" (ci. 132-12) This invention relates to improvements in hairdressing dispensers and refers more particularly to improvements in the type of dispensers in which liquid dressing may be applied to the hair with a comb.

In applying liquid hairdressing to the hair the dressing usually is poured from a bottle into the palm of the hand andrrubbed onto the hair and scalp. When applied in this fashion the hands are soiled. Also, the dressing often is not evenly distributed through the hair.

One object of this invention is' to provide a device for coating a comb with a thin film of hairdressing .to be applied to the hair.

Another object of this invention is to provide a device for applying hairdressing to the hair without soiling the hands.

A further object of this invention is to provide a device for applying hairdressing evenly to the hair and scalp.

Other .and further objects of this invention will appear from the following description..

In the accompanying drawing which forms a part of the instant specication and is to be read in conjunction therewith and in which like numerals are used to indicate like parts in the .various views,

Fig. 1 isa plan view of an embodiment of the invention with the comb removed,

Fig. 2 is a view taken along the line 2-2 in Fig. 1 in the direction of the arrows with the comb shown in dotted lines,

Fig. 3 is a view taken along the line 3--3 in Fig. 2 in the direction of the arrows, and

Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the device showing the insert lifted from the container.

Referring to the drawing the numeral I0 designates an elongated vertical receptacle for liquid halrdressing. The receptacle has a base Illa. In the upper open end of the dressing receptacle ls lowered an open ended insert Il. A shoulder IIa, positioned adjacent the upper end of the insert, rests on the upper edge of receptacle I0 when the insert is in place in the receptacle and holds the insert in the receptacle so its lower end is spaced above the bottom of the receptacle. Within the insert and positioned adjacent the broadsides of the insert are absorbent fabric or felt strips I2. The strips terminate at their upper ends at shouldern Ilank so that'a receptacle is formed in the collar IIb above the 'shoulder in which is accumulated liquid dressing. which may be drawn up through the insert by the removal of the comb. The lowerv ends. ofthe absorbent strips extend below the insert, as shown 2 in Figs. 3 and 4, into the pool of liquid dressing in the receptacle.

A comb I3 is lowered into the insert, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, and due to its contact with the absorbent strips acquires a lfilm of dressing along .the sides of its teeth and along its back. A

shoulder` I 3a which rests upon the top ofthe insert limits the vdepth to which the comb may be lowered into the insert and the receptacle. y

The. shoulder will also serve as a guard to prevent contamination of the handle of the comb with hairdressing. It is the purpose of the guard to prevent the comb from being immersed in the liquid dressing and keeping the comb raised above the level of the dressing so it acquires its coating orlm of dressing entirely from the absorbent strips. To this end only enough dressing is put into .the receptacle to immerse the ends Vof absorbent strips or bands. In order that the liquid level may be easily determined or ascertained it is preferable that the receptacle and insert are transparent or translucent.

The operation of the dispenser is obvious. 'I'he receptacle I0 is lled approximately to a level shown in Fig. 2 with liquid hairdressing. The insert. II is then lowered into the receptacle until shoulder Ila rests on the upper edge of the receptacle. In this position the lower ends of strips I2 are immersed in the liquid dressing and the liquid rises by capillary action saturating the linings or strips with hair dressing as a wick in a lamp.

The vdispenser is now ready for use and comb I3 is lowered into the insert until the shoulder I3a engages the upper edge of the collar limiting the depth to which the comb `is insertable. The vsides of the inserted comb frictionally engage the wicks I2, saturated with hairdressing. As the comb is inserted and withdrawn from insert I I the strips I2 impart a uniform coating or nlm of hairdressing to the comb. The strips I2 also wipe off any excess of dressing accumulated on the comb.

The hairdressing on the comb is distributed through the hair when the hair is combed. If

sufficient dressing for the hair is not obtained upon one application the procedure is repeated.

From the foregoing it will be seen that this invention is one well adapted to attain all of the ends and objects hereinabove set forth together with other advantages which are obvious and which are inherent to the structure.

It will be understood that certain features and subcombinations are of vutility and may be employed without reference to other features and subcombinations. This is contemplated by and is within the scope of the claims.

As manypossible embodiments may be made of the invention without departing from the scope thereof it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

Having thus'described my invention, I claim:
