Background for System, method, and apparatus for dispensing personal care products, providing instructions on how to provide a treatment service for personal care, and selecting personal care services
The invention is a method, system, and apparatus that facilitates the dispensing personal care products such as beauty products such as hair colorants, in which the hair colourant components are delivered at a dosage for the resultant hair coloring product to have the desired characteristics. The invention may also be configured to dispensing shampoo, conditioners, skin and hair treatments, as well as other beauty and personal-care products.
Beauty treatments involve using products to enhance, rejuvenate or repair the skin, hair, or body of a person to change or improve their appearance. Hair coloring is one example of a beauty procedure. Human hair is colored using hair coloring compositions. Individuals can apply them at home or in professional salons. Hair coloring can be used to achieve a certain look. For some, it may mean returning graying or thinning hair to the original color. Others may want to change their hair color to something else.
Hair color is usually distributed in tubes or bottles. Some hair dyes may require that the ingredients are provided separately to extend their shelf life or to avoid certain chemical reactions. Colorists often use colorant from multiple tubes. Many times, colorant or chemical coloring is wasted because some remains in the tubes. Tubes are usually supplied with 2 oz. The tubes are usually supplied with 2 oz. The colorist or stylist coloring an individual’s locks may also be required to mix color, which may in some cases require a small quantity of one color. When a small amount is used of a coloring compound, the rest of the compound must be thrown away, resulting in waste of both chemicals and the packaging. Mixing colors to achieve a desired shade takes time to measure and match the components of the colorant to get the desired result.
The tubes used for hair dye are squeezed by hand, usually from the bottom. The majority of hair-coloring jobs call for a mixture of colors and therefore mixing dyes from various tubes. In some cases, a bleach can be added to the hair dyes or colors. After the dyes have been squeezed out of the tubes, the dyes and any developer or bleach may be mixed together. This is done by hand. In US Patent Application No. The US Patent Application No. 2009/0161481 describes rollers that compress the tube end between the rollers and squeeze out the dye. The roller motor can be controlled in order to achieve the desired amount of rotation, or squeezing. The ‘481 patent application discloses an agitator used to mix dyes squeezed out of the tube or a separate mixing station.
