Washing your hair daily is not good for your scalp, hair, or hair color. We recommend washing as infrequently as possibly (typically 1-3 times a week). By going days in between washes you give your scalp time to balance out the natural oil production which actually helps your hair NOT get oily and dirty. Daily stripping of the oils is what causes overly oily hair. When the layer of oil is removed from your scalp, the sebaceous glands will produce even more to make up for the lack of oils. Now you see how the the vicious cycle of oily hair/frequent washing happens..
But what can you do to help with second day flat hair? Well, let me tell you about this magical product out there: Dry Shampoo! There are 2 different types of dry shampoos; Sprays and Powders. We carry both, and they are bother wonderful but people typically have a preference. Sprays are great for giving all of your hair a boost, its good for people who use hairspray and like to add a little volume to all of their hair. Sprays are also great for camouflaging any unwanted odors that can be in your hair (cigarette smoke for example). Powders are more concentrated and are usually applied directly to the scalp. Also, powders tend to absorb excess oil more than a spray would. Our favorite powdered dry shampoo is made by VERB. We carry the entire VERB line at Moxi Hair Salon. Not only are the amazing, vegan, all natural, they are also only $14!
Stop in to Moxi Hair Salon 2168 W. 12th Street in Erie PA to try some out!

Holiday season?! More like glitter season. *Z formation finger snap* It’s December already?? Your rushing to find time for a touch up appointment? Glitter roots, my pretties. Say it with us: Gliiiiiiitter rooooots. Here at Moxi we have a recipe for a custom glitter for your holiday look. Reds, pinks, silver, gold, rose gold, blues, greens, you name it!
You’ll be set for that Christmas party and New Years too! Rock it on your roots, strategically paint it on a braid (with the salon quality brush that comes with your glitter!) Paint it on your ponytail, your front hairline as a headband, dab it in the part of your hair for a more subtle pop if you have that kind of self control.. We don’t. The sky is the limit!
Psssst. Hey guys… It works well for beards too. Juuuuust sayin’.
We’ve caught the glitter bug. Drink the Koolaid with us. It’s fabulous just like you!
We would like to take a moment to give a shout out to Salty Dog and Haze! Wait. What? Pump the brakes. Salty Dog is our beloved sea salt spray, and Haze is her cute volumizing powder sister. These two normally retail for $25.00 a piece, but we here at Moxi love them so much we’re selling them together for $37.50!
Salty Dog can be used to create beachy, natural curls or even spray in wet or dry hair for extra grip in your style without the crunch of a regular hairspray.
Haze is sprinkled into your hair like a salt shaker at the desired areas of volume at the root and shook out with your fingers to create lift.
Together they’re a saucy combo of va va voom!
But hey, they’re only temporarily partners in crime, so come say hi, claim them as your own, and save some moolah while supplies last!

what does it mean to be an evo salon?
evo is found in select salons globally (wherever good hairdressers are well stocked). evo salons are professional, innovative and self motivated; they have integrity and individuality. they are industry leaders that thinks for themselves, challenge boundaries and inspire change. evo salons are serious about their profession but they don’t take themselves too seriously. they are making hairdressing real, sensible and cool again.
what is the evo network?
a salon that sells evo products trains in advanced techniques and shares the evo vision: to be truly professional – to stand for truth, beauty and justice. stylists that work at evo salons are professionals who are always looking to further themselves, who enjoy their craft, sharing knowledge with their clients and helping to satisfy their needs.
what does it take to become a evo salon?
a salon must meet evo’s high standards of professionalism, continue to undergo evo education and represent evo’s values and philosophy.
why go to an evo salon?
evo salons provide great service, the latest in styling techniques and professional products. their stylists will be real with you, ‘dirt under the fingernails’ type real (they won’t confuse you with technical bollox or tell you about the latest miracle product they have to flog you. they will simplify and share their knowledge – honestly teaching you about your hair and the products they are prescribing you).

TIME FOR ANOTHER MAKEOVER CONTEST WINNER!!
We love doing these! Here is a entry we got from one of Sara’s clients Kathie Sullivan:
“Hello Ladies of the Moxi world! Okay, I think my sister, Bethany Pratt, should win your contest because she is so beautiful. She is raising FIVE kiddos and has recently “fallen in love” again. I think a new hair makeover would be the icing on the cake now that her life is going in a new direction! She never has the time nor money to do nice things for herself! I’ll even watch her kiddos while you make her over!” Did you hold up your end of the bargain on that one Kathie?
Tiffany worked her magic and gave Bethany some shape and spruced up her color to a shiny, beautiful, healthy looking golden brown. Bethany said its been 3 YEARS since she’s had a haircut!
Here is her Before and After:
