TODAY’S PATENT – PERMANENT WAVE RINSE BAG
The Permanent wave rinse bag was invented by Timothy A. Terlep on 17th August 1993 bearing patent number US5235709A.
The present invention relates to a permanent wave rinse bag having a membrane for containing and directing rinsing fluid, having a network of conduits embedded in the membrane for distributing and dispensing rinsing fluid to a user’s hair. An inlet conduit is connected with the distribution conduits and extends away from the rinse bag for convenient connection with a wash basin faucet or other source of rinsing fluid. A series of apertures are provided along the distribution conduits, on the interior side of the rinse bag, for dispensing rinsing fluid from the conduits to the hair. A drain aperture is also provided in the rinse bag for conduction rinsing fluid, collected within the membrane out of the rinse bag. A drawstring or elastic closure is provided around the perimeter of the bag to hold the bag close to the user’s face and minimize seepage past the perimeter of the bag.
