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.

Does a great job at what it's made for

This wax works great if it's what you're wanting. I have thick hair and found it didn't take much to take control. It leaves a gritty feel which might be a turn off for some but it will definitely keep hold.

I love the look, the feel, and the smell of this product. What's more, is i love the dry, natural look of my hair when I use this product

Interesting product

I like the scent, texture, and matte finish. However, I don't have any need for this product as I keep my hair closely shaven. Thanks for the sample anyway, Birchbox, in the event I decide to grow out my hair into a Harvey Specter coif.

I do not use many hair products because of my thick, course hair. So this product is just not my top choice.

This product will be great for my son, if only he will use it. I had him try it once, but he wasn't convinced. I even tried it in my hair. It works as described.

Not impressed

This product was very thick and left my hair limp and felt like I had literal sand in it (I should have looked at the name). It had a very unpleasant scent and that was the first turn off for me. I did try it twice and both times I felt the need to re wash my hair. It will remain unused.

Once you understand how to use it, you'll be hooked

Too many people are focusing on the "dry shampoo" element of this when the fact is it's actually so much more than that. Do yourself a favor and visit Hanz de Fuko's website and you'll see that their product are designed to mix with others. For example, I have been using Quicksand mixed with their Sponge Wax to get a great matte finish look with tons of hold and pliability. The right amount of Quicksand can easily fine-tune your other wax or cream-based products into something less oily and more specialized for your hair.

Tricky to use
Sampled

Ok, so I would recommend reading the directions before using. Seriously. It's part style wax, part dry shampoo. First time I used it, I put it in right after a shower - after washing my hair - and it dried my hair to the texture of hay. If you don't have time to shower, or anything of the sort, then is the time that this would come in handy. Apart from the traumatic first experience, I learned how to effectively use this product, and now I absolutely love it.
