Description



BACKGROUND

[0001] For some women with naturally curly hair, achieving volume around the root area is an ongoing problem. A number of them experience volume at the bottom and mid area, while the top is left with little volume if any. One of the main reasons that they are left with this result, is because of the weight of the hair after it is wet from the shower. Even after gently squeezing some of it out, there is enough left to weigh on the roots of the hair. In addition most curly hair is "moldable", meaning it can take shape easily to an object such as these examples; laying on a pillow for a long period of time, wearing a hat, certain hair accessories including a ponytail holder, helmet, etc.

[0002] One can attempt to lessen this result by placing hands underneath the hair and vigorously shaking it, blow drying it upside down, teasing. But all of these can cause unwanted frizz, tangling, and more time in the bathroom styling.

[0003] The present embodiment seeks to provide a more efficient solution without the unwanted effects of over manipulating the hair, by lifting the roots up from the scalp. This creates distance, which with the moldable aspects of curly hair, will over time dry in this shape. Other advantages of the present embodiment will be readily apparent from the following specification and claims.

SUMMARY

[0004] The primary objective of the present embodiment is to create volume at the roots of the hair. The mountable volume hair comb is one solid unit, comprising a concave basal surface, a plurality of curved fingers, and two parallel congruent arched shafts.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DRAWINGS

[0005] These and other features, aspects, and advantages of the present embodiment will become better understood with regard to the following description appended claims, and accompanying drawings where:

[0006] FIG. 1 shows a perspective view of one example embodiment of the disclosure.

[0007] FIG. 2 shows a side perspective view of the hair comb.

[0008] FIG. 3 shows a front perspective view of the hair comb.

[0009] FIG. 4 shows of back perspective view of the hair comb.

[0010] FIG. 5 shows a bottom plan perspective view of the hair comb.

[0011] FIG. 6 shows a top plan view of the hair comb.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EXAMPLE EMBODIMENTS

[0012] Example embodiments will now be described more fully hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which example embodiments are shown. The concepts disclosed herein may, however, be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as limited to the example embodiments set forth herein; rather these embodiments are provided so that this disclosure will be thorough and complete, and will fully convey the scope of the concepts to those skilled in the art. Like numbers refer to like, but not necessarily the same or identical, elements throughout.

[0013] In the view of the foregoing, there exist a need for a hairstyling implement that can aid in creating volume after the hair had dried. The mountable volume hair comb disclosed herein are will suited for aiding in creating hair volume. The disclosed hair comb solves or improves upon one or more of the above-noted and/or other problems and disadvantages with prior known ways of styling curly hair. The disclosed hair comb creates volume by lifting the roots of the hair from the scalp.

[0014] Turning now to the drawings, FIGS. 1-6 show one example of a hairstyling implement according to the present disclosure. The hair comb 10, as shown in FIG. 1, includes a base 11, fingers 19-22 and shafts 15. The hair comb 10 also having one or more apertures 12 cutout of said base 11. The fingers 19-22, branch from the base 11. Further including two shafts 15 that branch from the bottom of said base 11.

[0015] The hair comb 10 is for use as a hairstyling implement that also can create volume while hair dries. The fingers 19-22 on the base 11 lift the roots of hair away from the scalp during the time in which the hair dries. The fingers 19-22 are of different lengths and widths apart. In example of FIGS. 1-6, the fingers 19-22 extend from the left side of the base 11 to the right side of the base 11. Placing the hair comb underneath the hair causes the roots to lift away from the scalp. Thus, while the hair is drying it will retain the shape in which it dried, which will create more volume, thereby leaving one's hair with a more evenly distributed look of volume.

[0016] The base 11 in the example of FIGS. 5-6, has a concave shape designed to fit around the back of the head. The base 11 is flat at the bottom 13, connected to base 11 are two parallel shafts 15 that extend from the left and the right corners of the base 11. The two shafts 15 extend and meet at the same surface level of bottom 13 of the base 11 resulting in balance and stability when not in use.

[0017] As shown in FIGS. 3-4, the hair comb 10 further includes one or more apertures 12 cutout of the base 11. The apertures 12 can include but not limited to these examples of functionality; hanging for display in retail, placing on a hook in a bedroom or bathroom for safe storage, etc. The apertures 12 can comprise variations of shape and size. Connected to base 11 are fingers 19-22 and two shafts 15 as one solid unit.

[0018] In the example of FIGS. 1-2, the first bend 16a and the following bend 16b provide the angles necessary to create the proper balance and stability for the base 11 to rest on the back of the head and the fingers 19-22 to stay levitated above the scalp. Further including the weight of the fingers 19-22 assist with this balance and extend to the tips 18.

[0019] The two parallel shafts 15 extend from the base 11 followed by an arch 14. The arch 14 is shaped to sit on the top of one's ears. The two shafts 15 extend and end around the temples of the head. All measurements of the hair comb 10 are based on the average head sizes.

[0020] The fingers 19-22 extend from bends 16a and 16b followed by a curve shape 17 and end with narrow tips 18. The curves 17 extend the general shape of the average head size and end around the top of a person's forehead where the hair line starts. The space 23 between fingers 19-22 can vary in distance apart. The tips 18 are shaped to penetrate the hair with ease, while not overly pointed as not to harm the head if poked.

[0021] In all of the foregoing examples, the mountable volume hair comb may be formed or molded of various types of material. Such materials can include plastic material meeting the requirements for a combination of strength and flexibility.

[0022] The specific features if any one of the embodiments described herein may be employed on any of the other embodiments where feasible. For example, any of the fingers may have different widths and curves, smooth or textured.

[0023] Materials and combinations of materials used for the hair combs described herein can vary. For example, decorative features may be used on the base and/or fingers such as decorative gripping surface with or without texture, combinations of materials or overmolded plastics. Such materials may be made in complementary or contrasting colors and/or textures, or combinations, and be used on any part of the hair comb described herein and remain with the teachings of the present disclosure.

[0024] Although certain hairstyling implements have been described herein accordance with the teachings of the present disclosure, the scope of coverage of the patent is not limited thereto. On the contrary, this patent covers all examples of the teachings of the disclosure that fairly fall within the scope of permissible equivalents.

[0025] Conditional language, such as, among others, "can", "could", "might", or "may", unless specifically stated otherwise understood within the context as used, is generally intended to convey that certain implementations could include, while other implementations do not include, certain features, elements, and/or operations. Thus such conditional language generally is not intended to imply that features, elements, and/or operations are anyway required for one or more implementations or that one or more implementations necessarily include logic for deciding, with or without user input or prompting, whether these features, elements, and or operations are included or are to be performed in any particular implementation.

[0026] Many modifications and other implementations of the disclosure set forth herein will be apparent having the benefit of the teachings presented in the foregoing descriptions and that modificated and other implementations are intended to be included within the scope of the appended claims. Although specific terms are employed here, they are used in a generic and descriptive sense only and not for purposes of limitation.
