APPARATUS FOR HAIR DYEING Filed Aug. 6, 1952 Patented Nov.V 24, 1953 f.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE APPARATUS FOR HAIR DYEING Fred Kaul, Buenos Aires, Argentina Application August 6,1952, seran No. 302,861

5 Claims.

This invention relates to apparatus for hairdyeing.

It is an object ofthe present invention to provide an apparatus for hair-dyeing wherein the `dyestuff is applied to the hair without staining the scalp or other parts of the skin. n

It is another object of the present invention to provide an apparatus for hair-dyeing which comprises a toothed-plate adapted to receive the strands of hair to be dyed and which is intermediate the scalp and a pair of rolls containing the dyestuff.

Other objects of the invention are to provide an apparatus for hair-dyeing bearing the above objects in mind, which is of simple construction, inexpensive to manufacture, pleasing in appearance, compact, will have long life and which is easy to operate and eicient in operation.

For other objects and for a better understanding of the invention, reference may be had to the following detailed description taken in'connection with the accompanying drawing, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of an apparatus embodying the features of the present invention and showing the same in an unfolded position;

Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view taken along line 2-2 of Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a top plan View of the apparatus and showing the same in a folded, operative position and Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view taken along line 4--4 of Fig. 3 and showing the apparatus being applied to the hair.

Referring now in detail to the figures, and in the practice of my invention, there is shown a plate I of metal or any other suitable material having teeth II on opposite longitudinal sides thereof. The plate Il) is similar to the toothed plate of a, safety-razor, but is larger and has longer teeth, and is further provided integrally with an elongated handle I2 having an opening I3 for a purpose to be hereinafter described and extending substantially transverse to the side edges of the teeth.

The handle I2 is pivotally secured to a second elongated handle I 4, similarly provided at its end with an opening I5 in alignment with the opening I3, by means of a rivet I6, as clearly shown in Fig. 2. The handle I4 is of the same material as the handle I2 and is, equal in length to the combined length of the handle I2 and plate I0, and is adapted to coincide with the latter parts when rotated to the position shown in Fig. 3. A slide ring I1 movably surrounds the handles I2 and I4 and is manually operable to the position shown in Fig. 3 whereby to maintain the handles I2 and I4 in operative engagement with each other.

The handle I4 is further provided at its end remote from the opening I5 with a pair of outwardly extending arms I8 and I9 at each side thereof, the arms extending outwardly therefrom at substantially right angles thereto and carrying at their respective ends pins I9' for rotatable rolls 20 and 2l, which pins I9 extend substantially parallel to the longitudinal axis of the handles and at equidistant positions from the handle I4, the ends of the rolls being provided with openings adapted to receive the said pins I9 of the arms. The rolls 20 and 2I are formed of an absorbent material and are impregnated with the dyestui being applied to the hair. The rolls 20 and 2I are spaced from the handle I4 suiiciently to coincide with the teeth I I of the plate I0 when the handles are in operative engagement as shown in Fig. 3.

In operation, after the rolls 20 and 2| have been impregnated with dyestuff, the apparatus is closed sideways like a fan and the slide ring is moved to the position shown in Fig. 3. Thus the handle I4 carrying the rolls 20 and 2I and the handle I2 carrying the plate I0 are firmly united and the rolls 20 and 2| are held in their position on the teeth II, as shown in Fig. 3. The apparatus is now ready for use in the following man-` ner:

Taking hold of the combined handles I2 and?` I4, the apparatus is passed through the hair in,A

such a way that the plate I0 rests on the skin.. whilst the rolls 20 and 2| remain on the outside of the plate. The dye-'impregnated rolls are thus separated from the skin by the plate, as shown in Fig. 4. By moving the apparatus in the direction opposite to the hair, the hairs automatically place themselves between the teeth I I and are in contact with the rolls 2U and 2|. Thus, the dyestuff impregnated in the rolls 20 and 2I dyes the hair without touching or staining the scalp or other parts of the skin.

It should now be apparent that there has been provided a novel apparatus for hair-dyeing which isolates the dyestuif and prevents the same from contacting or staining the scalp or other parts of the skin.

While various changes may be made in the detailed construction, it shall be understood that such changes shall be Within the spirit and scope of the present invention as defined by the appended claims:

Having thus set forth and disclosed the nature of my invention, what is claimed is:

1. An apparatus for hair-dyeing comprising a 3 plate, said plate having teeth along each longitudinal edge thereof, an elongated handle secured to said plate, said handle at the end remote from said plate having an opening, a second elongated handle, said second elongated handle being substantially equal in length to the combined lengths of said plate and said rst handle and being further adapted to coincide with said plate and first handle, said second handle having an opening at one end in alignment with said opening in said rst handle, means located within said aligned holes for pivotally securing said Vrst and second handles together whereby said rs't and second handles may be opened and closedinfa ``adapted to coincide with said teeth of said plate when said handles are in closed position, said rolls being formed of an absorbent material whereby to absorbY dyestuf. A

2. An apparatus for hair-dyeing comprising a 4metal plate, said plate having elongated teeth along eachlongitudinal edge thereof, a first elongated handle secured to said plate, said handle at the end remote from said plate having a first opening, a second elongated handle, said second elongated handle being substantially equal in length to the combined lengths of said plate and rst handle andadapted to coincide therewith, said second handle having an opening at one end in alignment with-'said opening in said rst handle, a means located within said-aligned holes to pivotally secure said rst and second handles to- "gether, a slidev ring movablyA surrounding said first and second handles, said slide ring being adapted to move longitudinally along said first andsecond handles to an open position adjacent the, said pivot means and a closed position adjacent the-said plate, and a pair oi rolls rotatably mounted on vsaid second handle at` theend remote from said opening thereini said rolls being of an absorbent material whereby to absorb dyestuff and being adapted to coincide with said teeth of said plate when said iirst and second handles are in coincided relationship.
