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.

Another sample that has become my primary
SampledPurchased

Got this as a sample a few months ago. After using up the sample, I bought a full sized version and am now getting ready to buy another one. This has good hold, is easy to work into the hair in a matter of seconds, and doesn't leave you looking like you just dipped your head in a vat of motor oil.

Ok hold
Purchased

This wax doesn't have a great hold for a pompadour. It's fine for when I just want my hair to part to the side, but it doesn't give me the hold I need for a pompadour.

Love It

I have fine hair and this product gives a great hold that lasts all day. I can make "adjustments' to the style throughout the day. It doesn't make my hair greasy or make it feel heavy at all.

Great hold and look

This has a great hold while still offering the flexibility to adjust throughout the day. It gives a great natural look without leaving your hair feeling dirty.

Great hold and clean look!
Purchased

Love this new product and it's become part of my daily routine. Cocktail with Quick Sand each morning for my short-medium length hair. Gives good hold without being too rigid. HDF products are fantastic and even though look small, jars last for months!

High hold with a sleek finish
Purchased

This product give you a high hold with a very matte finish. It leave your hair in its position throughout the day with the ability to run your fingers through it without leaving product in your hand. It is definitely worth a try.

See I've heard SO much about this company and this product, I was super excited to try it. I've got thick hair, but I'm starting to recede a bit, and usually go for a vertical messy look. This product seems exactly the same as a similar product from a ubiquitous brand. I think it would work much better for short hair. I like that it leaves hair matte, but if it's a windy day, don't expect you hair to stay in place. Overall, nothing stood out about this product to me. It's alright, but not different from the American Crew or Baxter waxes/pomades I've used.

Appealing, but...

This product had a great texture, good fragrance... But for my fine hair, I did not feel it had the kind of grip I prefer.

I think this will suit those who are use to a pomade and less extreme styles (tend to spike my hair) this would work well.
