  • Patent number: 7805794
    Abstract: A vibrating hair brush provides enhanced detangling of user's hair. The brush has a bristle pad comprising a plurality of bristles disposed in a brush head. The bristle pad is supported within the brush head by a vibrating motor and isolator assembly disposed for directing a vibratory movement of the motor to a bristle pad movement in a plane generally parallel to a user's scalp. The motor and isolator assembly effectively translate a circular vibratory movement of the offset weight into an elliptical movement of the bristle pad while insulating the vibration caused by the movement of the weight from a handle of the brush.

  • Publication number: 20080317544
    Abstract: A shaving lotion dispenser includes a container and a brush head connected to the container. The container defines a longitudinal axis and includes an outlet opening. The brush head is connected to the container and includes a plurality of bristles extending away from the container generally parallel to the longitudinal axis. The brush head includes an opening for providing communication between an internal compartment of the container and ambient. Distal ends of the bristles define a contact surface for contacting an associated person's skin. The contact surface is bounded by a non-circular periphery. The brush head can be silicone or elastomer.
