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.

Great product!

I am an avid fan of all Hanz de Fuko products with Quicksand being my favorite. I love the smell and I use it almost daily, especially if my hair is being very unruly. I really like how it acts as a dry soap too.

Love the Matte
Purchased

I have very thin blonde hair which does not like to lay in any other style than "bowl-cut." Once I tried this product my hair has never been so agreeable. The matte finish keep my hair looking clean and not greasy all day long. The dry shampoo tendencies of this product also keep the oils at bay for more than 24 hours. I do wish that the jar was a bit bigger, but I will be alright spending more money to buy this again.

Terrible for thick hair

This product in particular by Hanz is not great. I have traditionally used the Claymation which has a super strong hold but decided to switch it up. That was a mistake.

My hair is thick and a little wavy when it gets past 2 inches long. Quicksand is of an awful substance and it makes my hair feel quite literally like sandpaper. Moreover, it's extremely hard to get out - even after a shower I can still feel the residue.

If you're looking for a strong hold and have wavy hair I would recommend the Claymation.

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.
