Hanz de Fuko Sponge Wax

We love a good two-in-one product—who doesn’t?—and this matte finish, high-hold wax combines the pliability of a pomade with the staying power of a gel. Ideal for short- to medium-length hair, the versatile formula is good for everything from grungy, bed-head looks to more polished coifs. Use it to spike your hair or go for a pompadour. The sky’s the limit.

Great stuff!
Sampled

It gives a great hold without being too "stiff." Doesn't look like you have a lot of product in your hair also. Will buy again!

Waxes like wax should
Sampled

Plain and simple: good hold, matte finish, flexible, doesn't feel like your hair turned into a helmet.

I use my box samples to take on trips, since the size makes them extremely convenient for that, and keeps airport security off your back whenever you decide that you should be able to travel and not look like some sort of phillistine.

This particular one I took to Chicago in February, which as you may know, pretty much requires protection from the biting cold, such as a knitted wool hat (which I wore).

I wore my hat over my hair styled with this wax and it kept its shape when I took the hat off, something that is hard to accomplish in such situations.

Nice hold without hardening
Sampled

Holds nicely during the day, and doesn't make your hair feel gross. Just didn't provide as much hold as I would like though.

Best for short hair
Sampled

The product is pretty great if you're looking for a stiff product with a heavy hold. It's creamier than gel so it doesn't leave that greasy wet look to your hair. Not as great for medium to long hair as it makes hair pretty much board straight.

This is better than my normal brand so this is it for me from now on! Great stuff! Doesn't leave my hair feeling hard but holds it in place just the same.

Great hold
Sampled

Great hold -- didn't need a ton to keep the hold for the entire day. You need to be quick when you put it in though.

Small sample...
Sampled

I an not exactly the biggest fan of Hanz de Fuko samples due to the small size they give you, had this been a decent size, I might have used it all week. It is a very nice sponge wax.

Worked well
Sampled

It kept my longer thicker hair in place but I didn't like the sticky feel, I usually use a matte gel that works better for me than the waxy buildup this product causes for me

Awesome pomade!
Sampled

Works wonders for my pompadour, great flexibility, low shine and smells awesome, highly recommeded for the hipster in us all. :-) Also, it's easy to rinse out of your hair unlike other pomades.

Works Great on some hair types
Sampled

This wax works great- just not on my hair. I gave this to others to try and they actually had improved hold. My hair is thick and dry, however, so it didn't hold it down and only mildly improved the dryness. I'd recommend this to anyone without dry, dense hair though.
