Hanz de Fuko Quicksand

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.

Best hair product I have used

I have tried several different brands and this one is the best. Holds your hair in place without feeling like you have anything in it. I just slightly wet my hair and put a pea size amount of product in my palm. Hanz de Puko Quicksand works all day, I really enjoy this product.

Love it. Leaves my hair non-greasy and non-sticky
Purchased

I've been searching for a product that would not make my hair greasy. Sometimes you just want to be able to lay down on a pillow without it leaving a residue. This product is great. No more stickiness and when you touch your hair it has a gritty feel to it, almost like dried hairspray. It keeps a good hold with no glossy sheen so it looks like you have nothing in your hair.

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??
Purchased

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
Purchased

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.

Maybe a Bit Too Matte
Purchased

The product is great for those looking for a matte finish but it was too matte for my taste. The texture is super gritty. I feel like HDF has better products, namely the claymation that will give you the same look without the feeling of grittiness in your hair.

I love this stuff!
Purchased

Great as a dry shampoo for second day hair that needs a pick me up and to look refreshed. I personally love the gritty beachy feel of my hair with this in it. My barber swears by this stuff and now I see why!

Gritty

This product is hard to get into the hair and hard to get out. The smell is great and the type of dry hold it provides works well with shorter hair, but it isn't something your hair will drink up.
