Hanz de Fuko Sponge Wax

Not too bad
Sampled

I don't usually use product in my hair. That said, this stuff does have a decent texture, and smells pretty good. If I needed something to give myself a fancy 'do, this would suffice.

Not Applicable to Me
Sampled

This would be a good product for people who wear their hair up in stylized ways. Not really my thing, so didn't really work for me.

Great Stuff
SampledPurchased

I tend to collect hair products so I know when I find one that I like. I have to say the sample size was a little less than I would have expected. I had to go on the website to see how to use it. Those where the negatives now getting to the product it's great. Kind of like a gel and cream that finishes like a wax. Love the texture and hold it creates. I find that it works best in dry hair or almost dry. I liked it so much I purchased a jar.

A little sticky and stiff
Sampled

I use a pomeade daily, and I don't like my hair to feel sticky or stiff, and this product definitely did that. I like a soft hold, so this wasn't for me

Nice loose hold
Sampled

The "sponge wax" provide a nice loose hold to my medium length hair and washed out pretty easily and didn't leave any gummy/clumpy residue. Its not a strong hold, which may be good or bad.

It holds so well...
Sampled

I didn't even use hair products before getting this in my box. now I use this stuff everyday to style my hair. It holds well, and isn't stiff at all. It's even feels like it moisturizes my hair.

Not strong enough for me
Sampled

I have shorter, light hair (light referring to weight, not color). My hair isn't thinning but it is not thick. I found this product to be nice and easy to apply but it doesn't hold all day for me. I like that it didn't make my hair into a solid sculpture that is frozen in place but I need something just a little stronger than this.

Great matte wax
Sampled

I have thick hair and this product went on matte, even on my damp hair. If you're going for the matte finish, this product is right up your alley. The scent is great and it doesn't feel sticky compared to other waxes.

Great Hold
Sampled

Love the texture and matte look. Has a really good hold with minimal product. Has a nice subtle fragrance. Has become a daily styling product for me.
