Dec. 17, 1940; I J. MATYS HAIR DRYING APPLIANCE Filed April 29, 1957 INVENTOR ATTORNEYS Patented Dec. '117, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Joseph Matys, New Bedford, Mass. Application April 29, 1937, Serial No. 139,785
The invention relates to a hair drying appliance and more especially to drying applicators for use in drying the hair after the waving of the same, either permanent or otherwise.
The primary object of the invention is the provision of an appliance of this character, wherein through the use of the invention, the'hair 'upon the head of a person, after the waving thereof or curling of the same can be readily and easily dried through air currents under pressure and suction with the result that quick drying of the hair will be had without liability of dis turbing the strands of the hair set under the waving or curling thereof and particularly where a net is worn upon the head and confining the hair for its setting, the appliance being of novel construction and can be readily handled for proper placement for drying purposes.
Another object of theinvention is the provision of an appliance of this character, which is simple of construction, thoroughly reliable and eflicacious in operation, readily and easily handled, eliminating discomfort to a person having the hair dried after receiving a wave treatment, readily and easily handled by an operator, and inexpensive to manufacture and install.
With these and other objects in view, the in-. vention consists in the features of construction. combination and'arran'gement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described, illustrated in r the accompanying drawing and pointed out in the claims hereunto appended.
In the accompanying drawing:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the head of a person having received hair waving treatment showing the appliance constructed in accordance with the invention and inserted in the hair for drying purp ses.
Figure 2 is a top plan view of the frame.
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 3-3 of Figure 2.
Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of Figure 2. A
Figure 5 is a' sectional view taken on the line 5-s of Figure 2.-
Similar reference characters indicate corre sponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing.
In practicing my invention, as illustrated in the drawing, I provide a pectiniform frame 5 adapted to be inserted into the hair adjacent the scalp of a person having received hair waving treatment. The frame is fashioned with two groups of tines 6 and 1 respectively, said tines being hollow and profusely perforated and with the tines 6 arranged alternately with respect to the tines I. The frame is also fashioned with a pairof conduits 8 and 9 communicating with the tines 6 and 1 respectively and with said conduits ar- 5 ranged one adjacent the other and connected to the inner endsof the respective tines as clearly illustrated in the drawing. The conduit 8 and 9, between their end, are provided with communicating couplings l0 and II respectively and which extend in an opposite direction with respect to the tines.
As diagrammatically illustrated in Figure 1 of the drawing, I provide a blower 12 having outlet and inlet connections I! and i5 respectively 15 and with the outlet connection 14 interiorly fitted with an electric heating coil 16 for warming or heating air discharged therethrough. The couplings l0 and II are connected to the outlet and inlet connections l4 and I5 respectively of the 20 blower by means of hose l'l whereby upon operation of theblower heater air is supplied to the tines 6 through the conduit 8 and air is withdrawn from the tines I through the conduit 9.
In use, the frame is inserted within previously treated and waved hair with the tines arranged adjacent the scalp whereupon a net N is applied over the hair to hold the same in a fixed condition during setting thereof as'is customary in hair waving treatments. When the frame is thus arranged, the blower is operated to supply heated air to the tines 6 and to withdraw'air from the tines I, the supplying and withdrawing of the air from the tines being simultaneous. Due to one group of the tines being disposed in pairwise correlation with the tines of the other group, heated air is circulated between the tines and adjacent the scalp, thus effecting a drying of the hair without disturbing the same while in set condition. 40
