Need more hold without the shiny lacquered look? Try Hanz de Fuko’s matte finish Sponge Wax.

Hanz de Fuko

Birchbox Breakdown

Sometimes, there’s no time to shower. And that’s okay, because not washing your hair every day can be a good thing for many guys. Still, we don’t recommend you go straight from your bed to the office without some grooming. Enter Hanz de Fuko Quicksand. This unique hair styler adds texture and hold with no shine, breathing new life into greasy slept-on hair. Because you should never really look as if you haven’t showered.

How it Works

This medium-hold hair product is one part styling wax, one part dry shampoo. The gritty formula contains diatomaceous earth, a soft, granular rock similar to pumice that sucks up excess oil and adds a lot of texture.

How to Use

After warming up a small amount in your finger tips, apply to dry second-day hair to add lift and texture or to wet hair for volume.

not worth it
Purchased

This was a product that I had looked forward to using. Being that my hair is wavy, I thought that by using this styling product I would avoid the effects of the Florida humidity. Instead, I got the completely opposite effect of having wiry and stiff hair.

Great Hold, Great Look
Sampled

I love this product, it does a great job of keeping my hair in place while still giving it the freedom to move. I also really enjoy the fact that there is no "sheen" that comes from it as well.

Having tried two other Hanz de Fuko products through my Birchbox subscription, I can honestly say that Quicksand was my favorite for my particular hair style.

Too Dry
Purchased

This product is good if you are going for an extreme matte look. This product is real simple to apply into the hair but leaves the hair dry. It's also difficult to wash out.

Great hold but the texture takes some getting use to.
Purchased

I love Hanz De Fuko, but this stuff tends to dry out my hair. The hold is higher than I expected, and the texture is really hard to get use to. But as something quick on showerless mornings it does the job flawlessly.

Made my hair feel dry
Purchased

I was not a fan of this product. I could not get over the feeling it gave me when applying. It felt like I was literally rubbing sand into my hair. I was unable to use this product to style my hair after applying and was forced to wash my hair. Maybe my hair is not oily enough to appreciate the possibility of this product.

Unusual product with unique results
Purchased

I typically use high hold gels and glues that left my hair shiny and wet looking, as I have had fairly short hair. But I recently grew my hair out to medium length and was looking for a product that had less hold and shine. This does have a gritty feeling, which I was sort of expecting since it has dirt in it, but I got used to it and kind of like it now. It does have a unique odor, but a female friend of mine noticed it the other day and said she thought it smelled great! I find it has medium hold for my frizzy hair, but does not straighten waviness very well. Still, it gives a unique modern look and I would recommend if you're seeking a change of pace from typical hair products.

Honestly!...
Purchased

Hanz de Fuko is one of my favorite hair products on the market these days. Thanks to Birchbox I now understand how to properly style my hair without some stupid gel/wax I used when I was in middle school!

Great hair styling product from an amazing company
Purchased

I love the matte finish that this product gives along with the high volume. The texture is very unique, as it has a gritty, sandy feeling when applied to hair. I use this mostly as a cocktail in conjunction with other hair products and it gives me the desired result I want. It does have a weird smell at first, but that is to be expected, as it's made of a special dirt. This is a must try, and I love the fact it doubles as a dry shampoo.

Strong Hold

For having thin-receding hair, this wax has a strong natural hold. small amount needed to be applied and had a clean and clear finish.

Great Product

Holds well, smells great. Also nice to have the option for matte or glossy finish by putting on with wet or dry hair. Easy to apply and looks great!
