Hanz de Fuko Quicksand

A shower isn't the only solution for flat or greasy hair. This 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.

This is one of the most unique styling products I've ever used. My hair is pretty oily and greasy, especially in the morning before I shower. This product absorbs the oil and gives my hair a fresh dry appearance. The downside is that is does make my hair very dry and coarse, kind of the same texture as it is after I've been to the beach and swimming in salt water. For this reason I won't be using this product as an everyday styler, but I'll definitely use it every once in awhile. It also has a great unique scent.

Unique texture and hold
Sampled

This product is quite unusual. I don't think many men are accustomed to using the term "volume" when talking about anything in their life besides the TV, even if they are referring to hair product. However, for this, I don't know any other word that fits the bill... With the earth that has been added to it for the use in absorbing oils to day after hair, this cream leaves my hair feeling completely oil free, has a texture that makes the messy look easy, and has a great hold.

Great hair product

I don't regularly use anything in my hair but this product is great for styling hair and has a mattifying effect at the same time. Definitely recommended.

Too Dry
Sampled

I tried the quicksand on hair that was not washed for 2 days. I have this soft wavy dark hair. this stuff totally dried on my hair so much i couldn't get my brush through it. It was Dry tough and had that matte look and would not really hold nay shape for me. i have used other smaples from other boxes but this wuicksand does not do anything good for my hair.

Good Stuff

I thought this was an interesting product--that it is also a dry shampoo (my wife showed me dry shampoos and has put in my hair before). I'm not sold that it works completely like one, but it might work as other stuff.

Very good product. Great hold and great smell. Still like towel dry a little better than this, though. Still a good product, however.

Meh

I found the consistency odd, a bit too gritty and thick. I did like how it smelled though.

Great balance of hold + clean look
Purchased

Love this product! Quicksand provides a great, volumizing hold that manages to look carefree and professional at the same time. I am not a huge fan of the wet look, so this product is perfect for me--it does the job while looking like I didn't spray half a can of Pam into my hair. What's more, it manages to maintain that style overnight, so on a lazy weekend, I don't look like a yeti strolling into the gym or going to a farmer's market pre-shower.
