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.

Good stuff
Sampled

I am not usually a fan of this type of hair product, but I am pleasantly surprised. Gives nice hold without being sticky or gummy, and actually does add nice volume. Thanks Birchbox for introducing me to it!

Great Product, but not for me.
Sampled

I'm pretty much bald. I'm surprised that BirchBox sent this to me when I stated that I was in the questionnaire that I participated in when I signed up (granted it's through my wife's account). Birchbox dropped the ball here. I applied it on the little hair I have left. It held well throughout my day and at the gym. If I had a full head of hair, then I could see myself using it, but that's not the case. Over all, a good product, but not for me.

I normally use more of a gel type product for my hair, but I liked this one quite a bit. It had a good amount of hold for my medium length hair. I also liked the initial gritty feeling.

Smells Like A Glazed Donut
Sampled

Didn't care much for this. Too thick a product for my liking. Couldn't run my fingers through my hair at all after using and I thought it smelled sugary...like donut glaze. On the plus side, my wife did like the way it looked and it did hold all day without looking wet or greasy. But not something I'd buy.

Not bad at all
Sampled

I used this product on my damp hair after towel drying to produce a traditional slicked-back sort of look. The hold is great, and it easily lasted all day with no real issues. Shine is reasonable. The only reason for not giving five stars is that I would have liked it to give my hair a bit more volume than it did.

This product was unlike any hair product I've used before. It's almost waxy when its in and leaves your hair with a dry, manageable hold. I liked it, but not enough to purchase.

Nice, natural look

My husband loves this product! Usually when he uses gel, his hair is spiky and stuff. This product leaves his hair looking natural, yet put together and styled.

Kind of sandy feeling
Sampled

The paste is pliable and worked pretty well on day two of not washing my hair, but the texture of the paste was kind of sandy feeling. Once it dried in my hair, I really didn't want to touch my hair again because of the texture. It has a nice smell that isn't overwhelming.
