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 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
Sampled

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.

Great product but not sure about the not washing my hair everyday part.

Great product. Lightweight. It's odd having a gritty product to put on my hair. Would definitely not risk not washing my hair and using this product instead.

This worked pretty well. I usually just wear a hat when I don't shower, but I may actually start using this product.

I like the product but I'm not sure about the smell it smells like play doh but it really works in my hair.

Meh

The look was good using this, but to me kind of an off putting smell (though mild). Also, the feel is a bit weird, and I think I run my hands through my hair a lot, because I noticed it. I'll use it when I travel, but wouldn't buy a big one.

Beach Look and More
Sampled

This is some of the best hair product I've ever sampled! It stated on the insert that came with the sample, "for that just back from the beach look," and they weren't lying. It has just the right amount of hold and support without that wet or oily look. It also washed out easily with a mild shampoo, but holds when you need it to, like after a work out or a run. Highly recommend this to anyone out there looking.

Product not for me
Sampled

I wash my hair everyday and probably a bit too frequently. This product is designed to include a dry shampoo. Not a product feature that appeals to me.
