Hanz de Fuko Quicksand

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.

Pliable, but not great hold
Sampled

This wax is very pliable and overall, I liked it a lot. My biggest issue is hold...after about 2 hours it started to goup/flake off and then my hair lost it's hold. Just not for me.

A new customer for Wax
Sampled

Typically, I am a guy to use pomade and the occasional hair gel. This product holds great and it works like a charm. But once I received this sample, I thought to myself and said, wax is definitely better than gel. Gonna pick some of this once I run out of my other products!

Sample to small
Sampled

Would have loved to have tried this before we buy a bigger jar of it, but Julian's hair is about 16-19 inches long. And as for me, I'm a girl and really need to bathe, and it has a manly smell to it. Maybe after we register it to a friend with shorter hair and see how it works, we'll buy some.

Nice change

The texture of this product and ability to hold is great. I have mixed it with American Crew Fiber with good results.

Nice

It leaves my hair in place for the entire work day (10-14 hours). And being in customer service it pays to look well kept. My only con is that my hair feels funny when i wash it out.

very generic
Sampled

the product itself was not for me. It didn't fit my hair style. I tried it but it left my hair feeling matted and tangled. Overall it smelled and seemed like a very generic hair wax.

Beach hair
Sampled

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
Sampled

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.
