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.

Pretty decent but strange texture
Purchased

This product holds pretty well and works amazingly well if you skipped a shampoo day. It leaves hair looking refreshed but for me it the texture is a little odd. I guess that's just a quality of this product since it's also billed as a dry shampoo. Overall, I'm glad I bought it but I use it for those days where I didn't get a chance to shampoo my hair.

My hair isn't that long so its strong enough to hold it in place all day. And I work for 12 hours. It smells amazing and its so popular in my house my brothers ordered one each

Pretty good hair product.
Purchased

It's a decent hair styler, but personally I think it works better as a dry shampoo, and it doesn't have a ton of hold, so someone with thicker hair may want to think about getting something else from Hanz De Fuko's hair product line.

Good

Quicksand is a good hair styling product. It is from the guys at hanz de fuko. It is a dry shampoo and styling product in one. I would probably recommend it.

good, but hard to wash out
Purchased

this stuff is good with shorter hair, i have been growing my hair out and this stuff makes it hard to sculpt with longer hair and it's also harder to wash out .

Great Goo

I got this as a sample in a box and ended up buying the full size container. I like how it holds my hair and isn't greasy, too hard and easy to work with too. Great goo.

Just ok.
Purchased

Leaves my hair very dry and unhealthy looking. If your hair is very oily then this is for you, if not go with Claymation. My hair is similar to a crew cut. The good thing about this product is that just the smallest amount will last you all day. This tub will last half a year, if not longer.

Girlfriend loves it, maybe not great for thinning hair

I got this in a box a while back and have been using it frequently, because the SMELL! So good... I love that it smells like the beach, but not in a fake coconut way. My girlfriend loves it for the dry shampoo properties, but i have medium to thin hair, and it ends up being a little too wispy. Still, great product.

Hold and volume
Purchased

The description says it all. This is a unique styler with a ton of hold, texture and volume. It does have a bit of a gritty feel, and dries the hair enough that it won't feel soft to the touch. That lost it a star because having soft hair to run your hand through is important, and this product hinders that feel. I really like what I'm able to do with my hair when using it though, so it's a compromise. Not an everyday product, but definitely one to keep in the repertoire.

This was my favorite gel when I have medium length hair! Now that I have shorter hair it doesn't work as well, but will definitely use when it grows out again.
