Birchbox Breakdown

A shower isn't the only solution for flat or greasy hair. Hanz de Fuko's medium-hold product is one part styling wax, one part dry shampoo, using diatomaceous earth (a soft, pumice-like rock) to suck up excess oil while adding both volume and texture.

How to Use

Warm a dime-sized amount in your palm. Apply to oily, second-day hair to add lift and a matte texture, or massage into wet hair for volume.

It's Okay

I accidentally bought this product a while back, but figured I'd give it a shot after a few weeks of use. The smell isn't memorable, but not bad. My hair is a few inches long and pretty fine, and it's sometimes hard to make this product work for me unless I also use a little hairspray or another pomade-type product.

Did They Change The Formula??
Purchased

I've been using Quicksand for a couple of years now and this time when I received it from Birchbox, it's totally different. It no longer has a scent, it's not gritty, it's not as thick and creamy as it used to be, and it doesn't hold nearly as well. I wish I wouldn't have ordered 3 jars.

Great idea, but is difficult to work with
Purchased

This should be called Cement not Quicksand. Once it is in your hair you cannot even run a comb through it. It's ridiculous. I like a strong hold but you can't even work with it. Not buying or using again.

Maybe a Bit Too Matte
Purchased

The product is great for those looking for a matte finish but it was too matte for my taste. The texture is super gritty. I feel like HDF has better products, namely the claymation that will give you the same look without the feeling of grittiness in your hair.
