Looking for a hair schmoo that’s even more matte, but slightly less stiff? Try Hanz de Fuko Quicksand.

Hanz de Fuko

Birchbox Breakdown

We love a good two-in-one product—who doesn’t?—and this matte finish, high-hold wax combines the pliability of a pomade with the staying power of a gel. Ideal for short- to medium-length hair, the versatile formula is good for everything from grungy, bed-head looks to more polished coifs. Use it to spike your hair or go for a pompadour. The sky’s the limit.

How it Works

The lightweight, water soluble wax, made from organic ingredients and natural plant extracts, thickens and adds fullness while allowing you to separate, mold, and sculpt your ‘do like David Beckham.

How to Use

Rub a small amount between your fingers to soften. Use on dry hair to add definition or wet hair for control.

Why did I wait …

I purchased the pomade a few weeks ago when I got tired of using my old product with my new longer hair style and I enjoy the texture of my hair and the smell.
I will continue to purchase this pomade in the future for SURE.

My go to product for shorter hair

I wanted a dryer wax so I thought I would give this product a try. It is a different texture than wax...almost like a paste....but it does not leave globs of product in hair or flake out...so I am happy

Great for fine hair!

I have super fine hair. THis stuff holds it pretty well and doesn't weigh it down. I use it almost daily, and even sometimes when I don't wash my hair that day.

awesome product

I always used Murray's so this was a great replacement for that. I wish it were bigger. i have a lot of hair and you need to use a decent amount to work it into the amount of hair i have

Good, but going to try other Hanz De Fuko products

I have thick and wavy hair and I would put this product in just after getting out of the shower. It held well for a couple hours, but after that it sort of lost its hold. Eventually I would end up putting this product in at least twice a day to keep my hair looking the way I want. I broke down and ordered another Hanz De Fuko product to see if it would work any better compared to the sponge wax.

Stinks... literally

I thought this product smelled terrible... and it was a strong smell that really hung with you. I can't even remember whether I liked how it worked in my hair because I was so turned off by the scent... wouldn't purchase.

Great product

Spongewax does a great job in my hair - it ensures a nice, naturally shiny finish when I apply it to wet hair, has great pliability when I'm styling, and holds well when it dries without becoming brittle or sticky.

Perfect

I have thick, wavy hair and I don't enjoy anything that holds too much. This sponge wax is exactly what I need with great hold without that greaseball feeling. I would definitely recommend this product.
