Descrição
    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    This invention is related to a hair attaching method, in particular to a hair attaching method by which applying a joint sheath to attach natural or artificial hair to a client's hair tightly and naturally, hence makes the client's hair more stylish and increases the hair density of the thin hair client.
  • RELATED ART OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    Since ancient time, women appreciate enjoy dressing up more than men; they pay more attention to dressing, clothing, fittings, and hairstyle. However, fashion trend fleets quickly. In such a changing time, hairstyle should alter with the occasions. In today's' world where people's overall image is vital, hairstyle takes an important role.
  • [0003]
    However, the growth speed of hair differs from person to person, the length of hair can't be lengthened or shortened immediately, and the hair color and hairstyle can't be altered at all times. A technique called “attaching hair” is invented, which is aimed to attach hair strands of different colors and lengths to original hair directly or indirectly to make hair more variable and stylish.
  • [0004]
    In addition, attaching hair can also solve the trouble of thin hair among middle-age men, freeing them from pain and high expense of planting hair. The “attaching hair” method has evolved for a fairly long time and can mainly be divided into fixed type and removable type; however, in the past, the “attaching hair” method usually utilized thermosol glue to attach hair, and the quality of hair to be attached is different from that of original hair. If binding untreated hair or artificial hair directly to original hair, it will be coarse and difficult to wash, treat, and shape. Moreover, it will bring discomfort to the client because the attached hair is easy to entangle and difficult to comb.
  • [0005]
    As stated above, it is urgent task to attach hair for people conveniently while keep them feel comfort.
  • SUMMARY OF THE PRESENT INVNETION
  • [0006]
    In consideration of above issue, the present invention provides a hair attaching method, in order to overcome the shortcomings of existing hair attaching method. This invention utilizes a kind of joint sheathes that are heat shrinkable tubes made of polyolefin. The joint sheathes will shrink under heat and thus attach the hair strands to the client's original hair firmly. In addition, the attached hair is easy to be treated (e.g., dye, perm, or cut) and can be shaped freely. Moreover, it can add hair to people with sparse hair to increase their confidence.
  • [0007]
    As for comfort, the client almost can't sense existence of the joint sheathes described the invention, and he/she can comb hair smoothly, just like original hair. Therefore the invention brings convenience, immediacy, and diversity of hair, and protection to the client's original hair from any chemical or physical injury.
  • [0008]
    The present invention comprises at least the following steps: coil up and fix the hair at top according to head form of the client; choose a strand of hair from the original hair of the client and insert it in the joint sheath; push the joint sheath toward hairy root of the hair strand to appropriate position, and then insert one end of the hair trend to be attached into the joint strand; heat the joint sheath with a heater to attach the hair strand to the original hair strand with the joint sheath and keep the shape; finally, determine whether to attach another hair strand according to the client's hair condition.
