TODAY’S PATENT – FLEXIBLE HAIR ROLLER
Today’s invention was invented by Deanna R. Dickson on 30th June, 1998, bearing patent No. US5771907A.
The conventional hair rollers are relatively heavy, of large size, and very uncomfortable to wear during the nights, difficult to wash. The flexible hair roller has a soft cylindrical centre that is sealed off by a soft towel-like outer covering. The opposite ends of flexible hair roller has a snap and a snap catch so that the roller can be folded back and closed upon itself with the opposite ends being detachably connected together to form a loop configuration.
The aforesaid enables the wearer to create a number of hair styles (such as a spiral curl) without the need of caustic chemicals, harsh heat, or the need for wet hair. Moreover, the flexible hair roller is washable, lightweight so as to be easily packaged and transported, and comfortable to wear through the night. Due to its flexibility and softness, the wearer can sleep on the hair roller in either a flat or folded position without feeling uneasy.
