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.
Works perfect for my sons hair. Keeps hair up in front and not greasy. Not sticky and keeps hair in place all day. Will continue to buy.5
I have extremely fine hair which gets really greasy and shiny as the day progresses, so I wanted something to mitigate that problem. This claims to matify, as well as add volume and texture, which is exactly what I wanted. Also, I was so pleased with Hanz de Fuko's Sponge Wax, so I decided to give this a try.
It works great, but the only problem is I can't get it to stop working. It's nearly impossible to wash this stuff out. I tried many different shampoos, including the Hanz de Fuko shampoo, but nothing works. Even after a few days of having NOT used the Quicksand, I can still feel the dry, "pumicey" texture in my hair. Conditioning after shampooing helps to bring some relief to the overwhelming amount of texture that this product creates, but not enough. After a couple weeks of continued use, my scalp started itching like crazy and the dandruff started. I guess that's why they call it Quicksand...because it sucks every bit of moisture out of your hair and scalp!
Depending on your hair type, YMMV, but I've had nothing but mostly annoying or even damaging effects to my hair and scalp from using this. I will be going back to the Sponge Wax which I think provides the same amount of hold and matte finish, only with less dryness.
I bought this for my husband who has fine/thin dirty blonde hair. He looks for a messy, non-greasy formula in his hair products. I thought this would be great for him considering it claims to have a matte finish, however it did the opposite for him. It provided zero volume and made his hair look greasy upon application. I decided to keep it for myself in order to tame flyaways, even though a rarely use it. Hopefully it works better for someone else with thicker hair.3
A lot of people seem to like quicksand but definitely not for me at all. Did not like the sandy/gritty texture and it dried my hair out horribly. Had to return it.2
can't go wrong with this stuff. dry shampoo is a bonus. would recommend to anyone looking for a quick and easy hair product5
I bought this as a stocking stuffer for Christmas for my husband. He loves it! This stuff works awesome! Very easy to use.5
I've used a variety of products for a long time and nothing ever got me the look that i was after. the volume and hold with a natural looking finish. this does it! a little goes a long way with it as well.
Agree with some of the other reviews that it does make your hair feel gritty and is hard to wash out but its worth it.
I use Quicksand sometimes in combo with other Hanz de Fuko products, but not too often given the issues below. I'll use it to prime my hair as it sucks up excess moisture and will add volume. Then I go through with either the hybridized wax or modified pomade to add definition and style to my hair.
Agree with other reviewers that it does make your hair feel "gritty" though. It also leaves this chemical scent that is pretty noticeable, especially when I'm in an enclosed space like my car.
I dont like the feel of this product. I used sponge wax before and thought this product would give me the same body in my hair with a little wave.
It feels like glue is in your hair and it takes a good shampoo to get it all out.
It HOLDS your hair but a little stiff for me.
IT MAKES YOUR HAIR FEEL DIRTY AND STICKY, NOT LIKE A GEL OR CLAY, ETC, BUT IT WAS A GROSS FEELING.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND I AM NOT BIG ON PUTTING PRODUCTS IN MY HAIR, WHICH IS DOWN TO MY SHOULDERS NOW.
I DO HAVE MY PRODUCTS I LOVE FOR HAIR, RUSK FOR INSTANCE HAS A GREAT LINE THAT DOES NOT LEAVE YOUR HEAD FEELING DIRTY AND STICKY
THE ONE THING I LIKED ABOUT IT WAS THE SMELL, I WILL TRY IT A FEW MORE TIMES AND UPDATE MY REVIEW IF I FIND I OVER REACTED TO THE TEXTURE, BUT FROM A GUY WHO HAS HAD LONG HAIR AND TAKES CARE OF IT BIG TIME, NOT TO MENTION A WIFE WHO IS A HAIR STYLIST FOR 20 YEARS I KNOW MY STUFF
MAYBE FOR A YOUNGER DEMOGRAPHIC, I AM 39, SO I AM SET IN MY WAYS ABOUT WHAT I LIKE MY HAIR TO FEEL LIKE.
