Need more hold and less shine? Try Hanz de Fuko’s matte finish Sponge Wax.

Hanz de Fuko

Birchbox Breakdown

The problem: You’re a fan of the slicked back, rockabilly-inspired 'do—but you don’t want to look like a used car salesman. The solution: This lightweight pomade will keep your locks firmly in place, lend your hair a light and subtle glossy shine, minus any of the grease monkey effect.

How it Works

This medium-hold formula is water soluble—which means it’s softer and less greasy than its mineral oil predecessors, while still giving your hair smoothness and definition. Plus, it washes out easily.

How to Use

Apply to fingertips, then work into wet hair for that polished, Fred Astaire-like do. Or use on dry hair to add texture and shine.

Purified Water, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Castor Oil,  Hydrolyzed Quinoa  Protein, Butyrospermum Parkii  Fruit, Salvia Officinalis Oil, Phenyl Trimethicone, Mica, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Alumina, Natural  Fragrance.

great product with lightweight feel

Ladies and gentlemen, a birchbox winner! This will definitely be repurchased over and over until the bf changes his 'do to longer flowy locks. It has the perfect combination of lightweightedness and hold.

Nothing special about this product but it does hold well all day. It also doesn't leave your hair feeling greasy like some gels do. Overall a good product

Great hold

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this pomade since the description described it as having a glossy shine and I'm usually not a fan of that. However it held great my entire evening out, did not look all that shiny, and it didn't feel greasy. My next try is to see if it holds well all day at work, which I'm thinking it will.
