Patent No.: US6981507B2  Issued: 03/Jan/2006

Title: Child's barrette and method of application

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/388116   Filing Date: 12/Mar/2003

Abstract:

Fine or short hair is held in place by a barrette having a fastener material known as Velcro(R), comprising hook and loop portions. The barrette comprises a flat strip of flexible material having a decorative upper surface and a lower surface. One end of the strip's lower surface is attached to the hook portion of the fastener material. The loop portion of the fastener material is attached to the lower surface of the other end of the strip. Releasable contact between the hook and loop portions of the fastener material is achieved by bending the strip about a line perpendicular to its length, with the short, fine, curly or kinky hair being trapped by and held between the complementary surfaces of the fastener material. The hooks and loops of the fastener material are closely spaced so that constraining forces are applied to individual hair filaments or small hair filament groups.

Fastening is facilitated, optionally by a snap attachment. The holding power of the barrette is enhanced, and discomfort formerly associated with application and use of hair fasteners is minimized.

The method includes wrapping each strand a plurality of times around a section of the opposite strand located between the body of the device and the scalp. The method includes extending each section of hair around the outside of the arm defining the bounds of the opposite section. The method includes removing the hair styling device using a downward motion causing the arms to pivot upward pulling permitting the hair wrapped around them to be released and securing the hair into a twisted knot.

Title: Microwavable hair curling device

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 10/458757   Filing Date: 10/Jun/2003

Abstract:

A microwavable hair curling device comprising a plurality of hair curlers for winding up human hair. Each curler contains a desiccant material which is surrounded by an elongate casing of flexible material with opposite first and second ends, and an axial length. The first and second ends of the curler are attachable to each other. The curlers are both stored and heated inside of a microwavable carrier. The microwavable carrier insulates the curlers from heat loss, when taken out of the microwave.

Abstract:

A defibrillator having a pair of electrodes for delivering an impedance-compensated defibrillation shock and a method thereof is provided. The defibrillator can be deployed rapidly and effectively with no or minimal clothing and hair removal. To achieve this, one electrode is coupled to a neck region of the patient, whereas the other electrode is coupled to the patient's body. Both attachment areas are easily accessible to the rescuer, thus allowing a minimally trained user to easily deploy the defibrillator to treat the patient. A wide range of energy levels that are safe for the patient can be generated selectively based on the patient impedance. The presence of voids in the electrodes decrease the effective shock impedance of the electrodes, thus allowing the defibrillator to operate at a lower level of energy when delivering the electrical pulse to the victim's heart.

Abstract:

An item of jewelry is provided to receive a fragrance composition. The jewelry piece includes a securement member, a setting, and a piece of porous material. The securement member supports the setting and enables the jewelry item to be worn by the person in the manner in which it is intended. In some embodiments, the setting supports the piece of porous material relative to the securement member such that ambient air may flow between it and the securement member, maximizing the exposed surface area of the porous material. The porous material is a ceramic that contains sintered aluminum oxide and receives a liquid fragrance producing composition such as perfume or cologne.

A method for applying the fragrance to the piece of porous material is also provided and includes the step of washing the porous material with a solvent suitable to diffuse the carrier liquid of the fragrance producing composition.

Title: Hair styling brush with reverse air flow

Applicant/Assignee: NATURAL VOLUME SYSTEMS, L.L.C

Application No.: 09/610196   Filing Date: 05/Jul/2000

Abstract:

A hair styling brush with reverse airflow. The preferred styling brush has a contoured, bristled body for holding locks of hair in a curved or curled position. The body is perforated, and a blower in the brush draws air in through the perforations across the damp hair. This styling brush preferably is used with a conventional blow dryer or curling iron. When using a blow dryer, warm air from the blow dryer is directed at the lock of hair on the styling brush, while the blower in the styling brush pulls the warm air through the hair. Alternately, after a lock of hair has been styled on a curling iron, the lock then can be cooled rapidly using the styling brush. The styling brush is designed to direct the exhaust air toward the handle. In this way, the user can tell from the temperature of the exhaust when the hair is dry. More specifically, once the hair on the brush is dry, the exhaust air will begin to feel warmer as the evaporation process is no longer cooling it.
