Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Warm a dime-sized amount in your palm. Apply to oily, second-day hair to add lift and a matte texture, or massage into wet hair for volume.

Favorite Hair Product

This is my favorite hair product on the market and my go to. I use it after blow drying my hair and even sometimes i'll put it in my hair when wet and then blow dry it. Both times it gives a lot of volume and hold. Putting it in wet gives me more volume while putting it in dry gives volume and a cleaner look. I love the feel of the hair. You can't comb it after it sets but you can run your hands through it to reset if needed. I use it with the Hanz de Fuko shampoo and conditioner.

It's Okay

I accidentally bought this product a while back, but figured I'd give it a shot after a few weeks of use. The smell isn't memorable, but not bad. My hair is a few inches long and pretty fine, and it's sometimes hard to make this product work for me unless I also use a little hairspray or another pomade-type product.

Did They Change The Formula??

I've been using Quicksand for a couple of years now and this time when I received it from Birchbox, it's totally different. It no longer has a scent, it's not gritty, it's not as thick and creamy as it used to be, and it doesn't hold nearly as well. I wish I wouldn't have ordered 3 jars.

Great idea, but is difficult to work with

This should be called Cement not Quicksand. Once it is in your hair you cannot even run a comb through it. It's ridiculous. I like a strong hold but you can't even work with it. Not buying or using again.

good but feels odd to touch

This product hold my fine but thick hair great, however I didn't like the feel of dirty hair all day.
