Patent No.: US7478639B2  Issued: 20/Jan/2009

Title: System for styling hair

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 09/742871   Filing Date: 20/Dec/2000

Abstract:

This invention is a system and a method for styling hair and parting hair according to a predetermined pattern. The invention utilizes a stencil that has a patterned edge. Preferably, the stencil is a flattened elongated stencil device that is formed from a resilient material, such as plastic polyurethane or rubber, and is capable of conforming to the curvature of a human head. In operation the stencil device is placed over the area of hair to be styled and the patterned edge of the stencil device is traced through the hair with a parting device. The hair is then separated along the trace with the parting device to created a hair style with a part patterned substantially similar the patterned edge of the stencil device used. The parting device preferably has a tip portion for tracing the part through the hair and a handle portion for separating the hair.

Preferably, the handle portion of the parting device has two movable handles that are hingably attached to the tip portion and which open and close in a "jaw-like" fashion. Accordingly, the tip portion is moved through the hair near the scalp while tracing along the patterned edge of the stencil device. The handles are preferably in the closed position and with the tip portion pointing in a forward tracing direction. While tracing the tip through the hair, the hair flows over the handles and collects on the handles. After the tracing is complete, the hair is separated by lifting the parting device through the hair with the handles in the open position. Alternatively, the parting device has a tip portion and a flared body portion. Accordingly, the hair is separated as a result of the hair flowing from the tip portion over the flared handle as the tip section is traced through the hair.

Patent No.: US7481006B2  Issued: 27/Jan/2009

Title: Outer and inner ear drying system

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/222397   Filing Date: 08/Sep/2005

Abstract:

A system dries water droplets within a person's outer and inner ear. The presence of the droplets is typically caused by swimming, showering, bathing, and other activities associated with water sports such as diving, water polo and the like. A hair dryer blows warm air at a distance into a handheld drying apparatus. One or more diffusion chambers containing a plurality of apertures deliver warm air from the hair dryer into the outer ear. An integral central tubular element forming part of the diffusion chamber delivers warm air from the hair dryer into the inner canal. The diffusion chamber has a handle to help position the central tubular element within the inner ear canal. The distance between the hair dryer and the handheld drying apparatus may be varied to select a comfortable warmth level and warm air velocity.

Applicant/Assignee: INTERNATIONAL FLAVORS & FRAGRANCES INC

Application No.: 10/753847   Filing Date: 08/Jan/2004

Abstract:

Described is apparatus and a process for the enablement of functional product analysis of the headspace proximate one or more substrate, such as hair, fabric or skin, surfaces having affixed thereto functional product, a fragrance composition and/or malodor counteractant composition-containing microcapsules. The apparatus employs mobile microcapsule-abrading solid objects, including agitating stainless steel spheres during analyte collection in a gas- flow/trapping tube analyte collection apparatus. The reciprocating motion and the air-flow are commenced simultaneously thereby enabling the solid objects to become mobile and to effectively abrade the microcapsules affixed to the semi-solid surfaces.

The volatile substance contained in the microcapsules is then emitted from the resulting ruptured microcapsules into the headspace above them, and the air flow carries the volatile substance molecules into the trapping means, which is then subjected to extraction followed by analysis of the extract, such as gas chromatography, mass spectral analysis, infra-red analysis and NMR analysis.

Title: Aspen hair brush for preventing hair-loss

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/490452   Filing Date: 21/Jul/2006

Abstract:

A hair brush for preventing hair loss is provided. The hair brush of the current invention is comprised of a main body, a bristle body and a spike body. The main body of the brush is made of ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene- styrene) polymer. The bristle body and the spike shape body are made of mixtures of anion emitting material, magnets and plastics such as silicon and polyurethane. Strength of the magnetic field generated from the bristle body and spike body is controlled to be 5 to 50 Gauss by controlling composition of carbon steel and strength of the magnetizer. Emitting anion concentration is controlled to be 400 to 700 each/cm3 by adjusting composition of anion emitting materials. Combing 10 cm2 area of scalp one minute a day for 30 days, number of hair loss a day decreased from over 100 each to less than 20 each.

Abstract:

Disclosed are aqueous conditioning shampoo compositions which comprise an anionic detersive surfactant component

from about 0.025% to about 5% by weight of an water soluble or dispersible, cationic, non crosslinked, deposition or conditioning polymer

the conditioning shampoo may additionally comprise dispersed, liquid, droplets of a water insoluble, hair conditioning agent having a volume average particle diameter of from about 5 microns to about 125 microns. A homopolymer has a cationic charge density from about from about 2 meq/gm to about 4 meq/gm or a cationic charge density of from about 5 meq/gm to about 10 meq/gm

or an average molecular weight of at least 500,000. A copolymer is formed from one or more cationic monomer units and one or more nonionic monomer units or monomer units bearing a negative charge wherein the subsequent charge of the copolymer is positive.

The cationic polymer, in combination with anionic detersive surfactant component and other essential components, provides improved deposition of the conditioning agent on hair or skin, even when the dispersed conditioning agent particles have a volume average particle size of up to about 125 microns. The composition may be applied to skin or hair, and provides improved conditioning performance even without the use of the dispersed hair conditioning agent particles.

Title: Skin treatment composition

Applicant/Assignee: SHISEIDO RESEARCH CENTER

Application No.: 10/134441   Filing Date: 30/Apr/2002

Abstract:

A skin treatment composition of the present invention is an external composition for skin comprising an alkylene oxide derivative expressed by Formula (I): R1O-[(AO)m(EO)n]-R2 (I) wherein AO is an oxyalkylene group of C3 or C4

EO is an oxyethylene group

m and n are 1<=m<=70 and 1<=n<=70 respectively, wherein EO is 20 (approx.) 80% by weight with respect to a total of AO and EO

each of R1 and R2 is a hydrogen or a hydrocarbon group having C1-4. The alkylene oxide derivative (I) has a moisturizing effect, a rough skin improving effect, a stickiness improving effect, and a transdermal absorption promoting effect. When a refreshing agent is used together therewith in the composition of the present invention, the refreshing effect lasts for a long time and it is excellent in feeling of use without skin stimulation.
