Birchbox Breakdown

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.

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.

Great Product
SampledPurchased

I have very straight hair, so I need a product that has a strong hold. I've always used pomade but never liked the sheen with water-based products. This product has a stronger hold than the pomade I previously used but has a dry matte finish that doesn't make my hair look too greasy. Even with the strong hold, I can still style it easily. I'm hooked and will continue to use this product.

Replacement for Aveda Clay

I am a long time user of the Aveda hair clay - it always smelled good and worked well, leaving a matte finish. Over the past couple of years it has left a really greasy residue - I guess they changed the formula. So I was looking for something new - with a decent hold and a matte finish. After getting a sample of the Hanz shampoo/conditioner and absolutely loving the conditioner, I thought I would try this. It did not disappoint. So far, it is the absolute perfect hair product for men who want a matte finish. Nothing else compares and I have tried just about everything it seems. Give it a shot!

dry shampoo
Purchased

I use this as a dry shampoo and quick touch ups after my commute everyday into work. I have hair down past my ears and taming the beast isn't easy. This stuff mops all the sweat build up and keeps my hair where I want it to go. Price is very reasonable too in relation to similar products.

My go to

I tried this product on a whim because I had free points on birchbox and now after having bought it about 3-4 times since that first time I continue you to love it. Wish the smell was little better but great product.

Sandy Styling
Purchased

This stuff gives your hair a good hold with no crazy shine like too many hair products do. It does give a weird gritty texture to your hair (much like sand) and it stays that way until you wash it out. I'd recommend it if you're gonna be outside for a weekend and just leave it in the whole time.

Shapeable hold
Purchased

A clean matte finish without stickiness when used on dry hair. Very earthy scent. Used on thicker hair, more product was required for equal effect.

Awesome
Purchased

I was looking for a product that would give me absolutely no shine, and still provide medium to firm hold. Quicksand is just it : it is not noticeable in your hair at all. Some people mentioned the strange texture, and I agree - think very fine sandpaper texture all over your hair - but I actually like it. Very similar to sea salt feel after the day at the shore.

If you need high hold, get this and hairspray.

Pretty decent but strange texture
Purchased

This product holds pretty well and works amazingly well if you skipped a shampoo day. It leaves hair looking refreshed but for me it the texture is a little odd. I guess that's just a quality of this product since it's also billed as a dry shampoo. Overall, I'm glad I bought it but I use it for those days where I didn't get a chance to shampoo my hair.
