    Glow Dental Spa – The Difference in Dentistry

    dental spa


    If the eyes are the window to the soul, then your mouth and smile are its front door. Having a beautiful, healthy smile can signify to others you are friendly and approachable. An appealing smile helps break down invisible barriers, and it eases others into the conversation. From a personal standpoint, a charming grin helps boost self-confidence and balance the symmetry of the face. Maintaining good oral health is imperative to sustaining an attractive smile, and it means so much more than just brushing and flossing twice a day. It means regular trips to a qualified dentist. A dentist and his staff can help guide you through all the concerns about oral hygiene, and they can also make suggestions to, literally and figuratively, brighten your smile.

    General Dentistry

    Dr. Behshad Ahkami is a dentist, a smile architect, and the President of Glow Dental Spa in Wayne, New Jersey. He is committed to his patients, their smiles, and the overall aesthetic of their faces. Dr. Ahkami and his team of professionals are experts in general dentistry which includes oral evaluations, hygienic cleanings, assessments of overall gum health, oral cancer screenings, and detailed x-rays of the mouth and teeth. For patients experiencing dental discomfort or pain, Dr. Ahkami can perform emergency dental services like repairing broken teeth and missing fillings, providing relief of toothaches and sore gums, and root canals.

    Cosmetic Dentistry

    Beyond general dentistry, Dr. Ahkami and his team also perform cosmetic dentistry. If you are interested in changing the color, position, shape, or overall look of your teeth or smile, then there are solutions available with cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry allows Dr. Ahkami to alter the appearance of a smile, but it does not affect the functionality of the teeth, jaw, or gums. Just like tinting the windows on a vehicle make it more aesthetically pleasing, it does not change the overall performance of a car. Glow Dental Spa offers teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and Invisalign – providing you with options for a dramatic smile makeover. Glow Dental Spa has all the tools and resources necessary to help patients look and feel like the best version of themselves, with bright smiles and healthy mouths.

    Restorative Dentistry

    When a patient is diagnosed with an oral disease, it requires professional treatment, called restorative dentistry. Dr. Ahkami and the entire Glow Dental Spa staff are committed to helping patients who need restorative dentistry services. These services can range from oral disease prevention to filling a crown. Restorative dentistry revitalizes damaged teeth, gums, and jaw bones. For example, if you have a decayed, chipped, or damaged tooth, restorative dentistry would be used to bring back the tooth’s integrity and functionality. Dr. Ahkami has been assisting patients with their restorative dentistry needs for over a decade.

    Dental Implants

    Another service offered by Glow Dental Spa is dental implants. Dr. Ahkami is skilled in several different dental implant techniques including mini-dental implants, which take significantly less time to place and on average the procedure only requires one office visit. For those patients who need multi-tooth dental implants, Dr. Ahkami is proficient in those implants as well. Multi-tooth implants are for patients that have multiple teeth missing in the same general location. If you only have a need for one tooth implant, then Dr. Ahkami can perform a single tooth implant. Regardless of the type of implant needed Dr. Ahkami will counsel you through the process from beginning to end.

    Spa Treatments

    Dr. Ahkami is an expert, and it is important to him that his patients are comfortable while in his care. He wants to help all his patients look and feel their best. He offers several spa treatments at Glow Dental Spa including injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, Dysport®, and Restylane®. These treatments help the skin feel younger and boost a patient’s confidence. Dr. Ahkami has been administering these treatments for over seven years, and he is Board Certified by the State of New Jersey in dermal fillers and Botox. When your smile needs a little something extra, Dr. Ahkami can help you determine the next steps in your ultimate smile makeover.

    Go Away, Greasy Hair

    girl with non greasy hair
    Sick of waking up to find your good night’s sleep also got you greasy hair? It’s certainly a common problem, one of which we have all experienced in the past! Not got time to jump in the shower? No problem! There are some ways you can get rid of all that greasy hair without washing. Here are some awesome tips for doing just that.

    Use Dry Shampoo

    The quickest way to get rid of your oily roots is to give them a quick spritz with some dry shampoo. You can buy various brands of this type of shampoo in your local supermarket or drugstore. The beauty of dry shampoo is that you don’t need to rinse it out with water. Simply spray onto your hair – remember to focus on the roots! – and then rub it in for a few minutes. Then you just need to brush it out with your regular hair brush. And there you have it; your hair will look a lot healthier and shinier without any traces of grease!

    Straighten Your Hair
    When you straighten your hair, you will be adding a lot of heat to it, which can effectively dry out your hair. You can discover the best kinds of straighteners for your hair on sites like Simply straighten your hair, and you will find that your hair will appear a lot dryer when you’ve finished. Remember that you should always use heat protection spray, though, to prevent any damage.

    Use Products With Witch Hazel
    When you are looking for new hair products, try and find ones that contain witch hazel. Witch hazel is a flower that has many different properties: 14 Uses for Witch Hazel. One of these great properties is that it acts as an astringent, which means it can help to close the pores on the skin. When you apply it to your hair, it will cause the pores of the scalp to close up, which prevents any grease or oil being secreted from the skin onto the hair.

    Egg-White Mask
    One way to prevent greasy hair in the first place is to better prep it while you are washing it. There is no better hair preparation than a good old hair mask. This is something you apply to the hair and leave it on for about half an hour before you wash it. It acts as a deep conditioner. Want to know what the best natural product is to use as a hair mask? Egg whites! Egg whites are very high in sulfur, which is great for getting rid of dandruff and excess oil from the hair. All you need to do is whisk up some egg whites and cover the hair with them. Then, after about 20-30 minutes, wash them out with your regular shampoo.

    No one likes oily or greasy hair and, thankfully, it’s not something that you have to put up with for too long. These tips above can help you get perfect hair every day!

    UMA Discovery Oil Kit Review

    Uma discovery oil, UMA Discovery Kit

    On removing the UMA Discovery Oil Kit from its packaging I could smell the scent of chamomile and lavender lingering. I immediately fell in love with the scent that I sniff, sniffed away. The UMA Oils came in a cute white compact packaging with a beautiful silver flower design embossment and a carton that you can pull from either side to get the oils out, with the oils lying face down and the labeling shooting up. I was able to pull each oil out with my fingertips for usage. Read more

    braids, natural hair, afro, kinky hair, protective style

    We often wear braids as a form of protective or low-maintenance style. By doing this the hair gets less manipulation and is able to grow. The longer we have braids installed; the more build ups we accumulate on the scalp from sweat, pollutants from the air and surroundings, dead skin cells, sebum, hair products and more. To prevent this the scalp need to be cleaned on a regular basis. This DIY scalp cleanse recipe is very simple.

    ACV Scalp Cleanse Recipe

    Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
    Water Bottle Spray
    Jamaican Black Castor Oil


    Mix 1/2 cup ACV with 1 cup filtered water or bottled water. 
    Pour in a spray bottle. 
    Add 2 drops of JBCO
    Spray over scalp and gentle massage. 


    Allow the ACV to sit on scalp for 3 minutes then rinse hair thoroughly with water to remove the ACV mixture.

    This Mixture will help to keep the scalp clean without messing up with your Ph balance. By using ACV wash once per week it will replace the need for shampooing the hair. It will also help with itching and you will be able to wear your braids much longer and still maintain a clean scalp. 

    If you are not into the whole idea of DIY hair care then you can pick up the Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1 Miracles Natural Hair Balance Apple Cider Vinegar with Black Castor OilYou can also use other methods such as dry shampoo. Even though I’m not a big fan of dry shampoo.

    Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Hair Care Collection & Brush

    Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Hair Care Collection & Brush
    I was waiting to add a little color to my hair before I went ahead to test and review this product. Anyhow, I got the color in but later regretted it. The color was not vibrant enough to my liking since I tried to do an at home thing with not sufficient time. Luckily enough I had this wonderful product from Hask that helped to reverse the feeling of my dry thirsty hair from dying.
    I immediately grab for the Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection Shampoo and apply a handful amount to my hair and scalp. My hair lathered in no time. I was loving the feeling of the Hask Shampoo rinsing the residue from my hair leaving my hair all clean and shiny.
    After shampooing I used the Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Protection Conditioner which made my hair soft, manageable, shiny and smelling good. I followed up with the Hask Kalahari Melon Oil Nourishing Deep Conditioner; I left it in my natural dyed hair for approximately 20 mins and covered with a plastic cap. After rinsing the product thoroughly from my hair I applied the Kalahari Melon Oil Protection Shine Treatment and blow dry my hair using the Hask brush.
    I love the Hask product line. It has tons of benefits for color treated hair and/or dry, damaged hair.
    This product is free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors.

    Wash n’ Go on 4B/4C Hair

    Wash n’ Go! We see the style, we love the curls and we want our hair in the same exact style but often times we consider is this style for my hair type? My first wash n’ go was done by my friend. It was a Saturday evening I washed my hair made a trip to her house. She started to work the products into my freshly washed hair by separating section by section and going through with a Denman brush.

    After the products were applied to my hair I diffused for about 2 hours until my hair was dried enough from the roots. The turnout was amazing and I slayed that wash n’ go, everyone loved it.

    Second Wash n’ Go Attempt

    On my second time doing a wash n’ go I was hesitant to try on my own, so I purchase III Sisters of Nature Natural Curling Gelo from the beauty store and I used it along with the Eco-Styler Gel. Upon reaching home I washed my hair and watched a few tutorials on how to achieve a wash n’ go just to ensure that I get the job done right. I used every step mentioned in the YouTube videos but my attempt was terrible after my hair became dry. While my hair was wet the curls were popping but as it became dry my hair became flat and soft to the touch.

    My Wash n’ Go Routine

    • Freshly washed hair drench with water
    • Curling cream completely coating each strand of hair
    • With a strong holding gel
    • Denman brush to define curls or finger shingling/coiling method
    • Diffuse or air dry

    Third Wash n’ Go Attempt

    On my third attempt of doing a wash n’ go I used the Eco Styler Gel along with Cantu Coconut Curling Cream and raked the product through my hair with a bit of finger coiling. My curls were super defined but after drying I find that my hair was filled with residues sitting on the top of my hair.
    wash n go, natural hair, type 4 hair, afro hair, kinky hair, black hair care


    Through all my wash n’ go attempts I will try again until I get it right. Finding the perfect wash n’ go routine is not always easy. For some, it will take multiple attempts, even though the steps are very simple. Not all products work well together, so this can be a disadvantage of achieving the perfect wash n’ go hairstyle. I also find that wash n’ go on my hair type leads to breakage.

    What products do you use for your wash n’ go hairstyle? Please leave your comments below.

    How a Home Humidifier Works and The Different Types

    A home humidifier is normally used in the winter time. When you turn on the heat in the winter, the heat not only sends cold air out of your house, it will also send humidity out.

    Your home should have a relative humidity of about 40 to 45 percent. When the heat is turned on, the humidity can drop below 20 percent and even down to 5 percent. The low humidity can cause several problems inside your home as well as affect your health.
    The dry air can suck the moisture out of your furniture. This can cause your furniture to break easily. Low humidity can also cause static electricity and can make the air feel colder inside. The wood in the floors can become dried out which causes the wood to shrink and create creaks. You’ll also notice cracks in the drywall and plaster of your walls.
    As far as your health is concerned, the dry air from low humidity can dry out your skin and make you feel colder. Dried out mucous membranes can cause frequent nose bleeds and your throat drying out. This will make you even more vulnerable to colds and other respiratory problems.
    A home humidifier will help you with these problems. It will raise the humidity to a proper level so that the air isn’t dry and you don’t sit around the house with a stuffed up nose and dry mouth. The water in the humidifier will either evaporate or release steam into the room causing the air to become moistened.
    Of course, you only want to use it during the winter. In the warmer months, the humidity is higher and you don’t want your home to be too humid. That could lead to problems such as mold and bacteria buildup.
    There are several types of home humidifiers you can buy. You don’t want to buy something that’s too complicated to figure out how to work. You also want to make sure that you will have the time necessary to clean and do proper maintenance on a regular basis.
    Warm Mist HumidifierA warm mist humidifier is a great way to alleviate some of the symptoms of the common cold and other respiratory problems.
    Cool Mist HumidifiersThere are three types of cool mist humidifiers. Either type of humidifier will do the same job of raising the humidity in your room.
    Furnace Mount HumidifierA furnace mount humidifier is also called a whole house humidifier. The way furnace humidifiers work is that they are usually fitted into your heating system.
    Filterless Humidifier Buying a filterless humidifier might cost a little more, but it will save you money in the long run. These types of humidifiers are used in large rooms.

    How to Clean a Humidifier?

    It is very important that you know how to clean a humidifier. The cleaning and regular maintenance of a humidifier is the worst part about owning one. No one likes doing it, but it has to be done if you want your humidifier to work properly.
    If you have a single room humidifier that uses a filter or a mineral pad, make sure you replace the filter/pad on a regular basis. Dirty filters and mineral pads can cause a problem not only for your house but for your health as well.
    The purpose of the humidifier filter or mineral pad is to trap all the bacteria and dust that comes from the water you use to fill the tanks. If the filter or pad isn’t changed regularly, the bacteria will end up being released into the air of your room. This can cause fungi and molds to grow in your house.

    The bacteria and mold spores will float around in the air and could end up getting into your food, drinks, your throat and nose. You can end up having some serious respiratory problems.


    The manufacturer will have instructions included on how to clean a humidifier. It’s very important that you follow those directions and not try to do it your own way. You might end up damaging the unit or not cleaning it well enough to get rid of all the bacteria and dust.
    If you are using tap water to fill up the tank, then you will have to clean the humidifier and tank more often. This is especially true if you have hard water. Manufacturers sometimes suggest that you use distilled or purified water to lower the number of bacteria that are in the water.
    Many humidifiers are made of plastic parts. You have to be very careful how you clean these parts because the plastic can break easily. Using a toothbrush to clean the dust inside the unit is a good way to ensure that you won’t damage any parts.
    Putting a teaspoon of bleach in a gallon of water in the tank will help get rid of bacteria. Let it sit for about 20 minutes then rinse the tank out until any bleach smell is gone.
    You can also pour a cup of vinegar in the unit’s reservoir ONLY and let it sit for 20 minutes. Dump out the vinegar and then pour a cup of water in the reservoir only in order to get rid of the vinegar. Pour the water out after that.
    You can then use the toothbrush to get rid of any mineral buildup and dust. Make sure you don’t get any water on the bottom of the unit or on any internal parts.

    If you clean your humidifier once a week according to the manufacturer’s instructions and change the filter or mineral pad every few weeks, the unit should work properly and you won’t have any bacteria or mold build up in your home.
