Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0162119A1] A liquid-reservoir hairbrush (1) that is capable of evenly dispersing water-based solutions and other thin and non-viscous liquids over the user's scalp and/or through the user's hair during routine hair brushing. Absorbent filler unit(s) (6) are placed into a chamber (58) of the hairbrush body (4) and absorbent feed rods (15) are placed into bores (13) of the hairbrush bristles (12). The hairbrush (1) can be provided with roller-ball (19) or felt-tipped nozzles (20) mounted at distal ends of the hairbrush bristles (12), or with side nozzles located at the bristle's side walls. The absorbent feed rods (15) interconnects the absorbent filler unit(s) (6) and the nozzles, and the liquid from the absorbent filler unit(s) (6) is supplied through the absorbent feed rods (15) to the nozzles. The chamber (58) of the hairbrush body (4) can be divided into multiple, hermetically isolated sections. The hairbrush body (4) can have an optional filler inlet (57) and can come with an optional liquid refilling unit (30) which can hold a predetermined volume of the liquid. The hairbrush (1) comes with a removable bristle lid (26) to keep the bristles enclosed when the hairbrush is not in use and to help prevent the nozzles from drying out.
