  • Patent number: 11166870
    Abstract: A stimulation device is provided in accordance with one embodiment. The stimulation device includes a chamber which has a flexible wall portion. A drive unit of the stimulation device is in physical communication with the flexible wall portion so as to cause deflections of the flexible wall portion in opposing directions, thereby resulting in a changing volume of the chamber. The changing volume of the chamber results in modulated positive and negative pressures with respect to a reference pressure. An opening of the stimulation device is for applying the modulated positive and negative pressures to a body part. An appendage of the stimulation device may be used as a handle to allow a user to position the stimulation device over the body part.

  • Patent number: 8900702
    Abstract: An artificial hair and a wig using the same are provided which have the property of thermal deformation expanding upon heating by a hair drier or others used for hair styling. The artificial hair 1 is made by mixing at the pre-determined ratio a semi-aromatic polyamide having a glass transition temperature between 60-120° C. and a resin not expanding in said temperature range. The artificial hair may have a sheath/core structure comprising a core portion 5B and a sheath portion covering the core portion. As the resin not expanding in said temperature range, polyethylene terephthalate or others can be used, and as the sheath, nylon 6 or nylon 66 can be used. Said artificial hair 1 can maintain its shape at room temperature or after shampooing due to thermal deformation by heating in steam atmosphere at temperature of glass transition or higher or about 80-100° C.

  • Patent number: 8887738
    Abstract: A portable hair-styling device is provided for creating attractive ponytails. The device has a primary housing containing a motor, an impeller, a blocking flap, and a filter screen. Connecting to the primary housing is a flexible hose, a plurality of styling tubes, and one or more elastic bands. When powered on, a partial vacuum is generated within the flexible hose and the styling tube attached thereto. The free end of the styling tube is moved around the base of the stylee's neck to gather loose hair into the tube, and an elastic band is then positioned on the captured length of hair. The device operator releases the captured hair by depressing a release button on the housing, which engages the blocking flap and temporarily disrupts the flow of air from the flexible hose. After hair is removed from the styling tube it remains styled in a neat ponytail.

  • Publication number: 20140261519
    Abstract: A hair applicator comprises a body, a flexible member, and a means of transferring a center of the flexible member. The flexible comprises bristles, which may be arranged in a circular pattern and/or of differing lengths. The hair applicator may also contain a means of adjusting the initial position of the center of the flexible member. A user may apply an appropriate amount of hair coloring composition within the bristles of the flexible member. When the center of the flexible member is moved, the shape of the flexible member is changed which causes the bristles form to a conical shape which may be used to grasp strands of hair. The user may comb the hair coloring composition throughout the length of the hair and effectively highlight the desired hair strands, although other suitable applications will be apparent to those of ordinary skill in the art in view of the teachings herein.

    Abstract: A device for applying a haircare product to a lock of hair may include an applicator comprising a container, the containing being configured to hold a quantity of the haircare product. The device may further include a holding member configured to engage with the applicator such that, when the device is moved longitudinally with relation to the lock of hair, the holding member holds the lock of hair in contact with the applicator. The applicator may include an applicator end piece mounted on the container, the end piece comprising an outlet orifice and a moveable closure element. The closure element, in a first position, may close off the outlet orifice and, in a second position, at least partly open the outlet orifice. The closure element may move between the first position and the second position in response to a force exerted on the closure element by insertion of the lock of hair between the holding member and the closure element.

    Abstract: Implementations of the present invention may reduce the difficulty of removing weft hair extensions from braided hair. Implementations of the present invention comprise a novel apparatus to lift the thread away from the weft hair extension and the braided hair and cut the thread. The apparatus includes a handle and a u-shaped end-piece that includes a blade in the curved portion of the u-shaped piece. In some implementations, the u-shaped end-piece may include a sharpened edge in the curved portion of the u-shaped piece In some implementations, one side of the u-shaped piece may be longer than the other side of the u-shaped piece. In some implementations, one side of the u-shaped piece is tapered at the end with a flat surface to facilitate lifting the thread away from the weft hair extension. In some implementations, the end of the handle can be tapered.
