Omar Boraie is a top-notch real estate developer, a philanthropist, and a scholar of chemistry.

He arrived at a time when the town was in bad shape, and he decided to rebuild it. Omar established a real estate firm, Boraie Development, which has been transforming New Brunswick and its surroundings gradually. Today, the company has developed and is still developing modern condos and residential estates in the area.

Boraie Development also recently developed luxury residential apartment at The Beach of South Inlet.

At Montgomery, New Jersey, the company is developing residential homes a few kilometers away from Downtown Princeton, Shopping, and Transit.

The Aspire

The Aspire, another recent project by Boraie Development, opened its doors for leasing in June 2015. The building is a mixture of modern technology and architectural sophistication and is located strategically for convenience. The New Brunswick train station and Rutgers University’s Downtown-City Center are all within walking distance from The Aspire. The building has one-bedroom and two bedroom designer apartments going for $1,800 and $2,700 per month respectively. On top of that, it has a238 studio apartments each going for $1,650 per month.


Besides shining in the real estate industry, Omar Boraie is also a star in the field of philanthropy and non-profit, As an advisory board member and a major donor of Elijah’s Promise, he has significantly impacted on the lives of the poor folk in New Brunswick and New Jersey at large. Elijah’s Promise raises funds to feed the hungry through a soup kitchen and a culinary school.

How Wen Affected This Author’s Fine Hair

Emily McClure had seen commercials about the WEN hair care products and decided to try out the Cleansing Conditioner.

Wen is a company that sells on eBay a popular line of hair care products created by Chaz Dean. Accordign to their Facebook page, their main product is the Cleansing Conditioner which claims to take the place of shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner with only one product.

On her first day using the product she noted how the bottle recommended using around 20 pumps for her hair style. Worried how the product would affect her fine hair she chose to use the minimum amount of product and started with 10 pumps.

After her first use she immediately noted changes in how her hair looked and felt. While massaging the product into her hair she points out that normally a lot of hair falls out in the shower, but while she used the Wen conditioner she did not experience any hair falling out. After rinsing the product McClure used a blow dryer to dry her hair. The conditioner made added shine and bounce to her hair after her first use.

Continuing to use the product daily Emily noticed that while the product still gave her hair more shine and bounce, her hair got greasy faster than normal. McClure would usually only need to shower every other day before her hair would look greasy. While using Wen product she had to shower every day.

The authors overall reaction to the product was a positive one. Completing a one week trial, she noted that after using Wen Cleansing Conditioner her hair not only felt better but looked better. One point she made was that the product may not be for you if you don’t have time to shower and style your hair every day, as it will make your hair greasy much quicker than normal.
