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.

It does, in fact, feel like beach hair. It's kind of a novelty, but I'd rather just go to the beach.

The Wife Likes It

My wife likes the way it looks and feels, therefore I like the way it looks and feels.

Not for me

I'm sure this product would work well for some, but I wasn't crazy about the texture. It felt very greasy on my hands while I was rubbing it into my hair, and left my hair feeling a bit greasy as well. I prefer products that still leave my hair feeling soft, like there's no product in it. This isn't that type of product. The scent was fine.

Works Great!

I don't like shiny or stiff hair, but I do like my hair to stay where I put it. This stuff is great for that. It provides a little hold without greasing or plastering your hair in place. It leaves your hair looking matte and normal, just a little less floppy or flyaway than it might normally be. I have dry hair, so don't know about the grease-soaking aspect of this product, but as a styler I really like it. A little goes a long way. I'll repurchase when my sample runs out.

As promised, but maybe not for me

I could not give this product a 5-star rating technically I don't "love" it, but it does deliver what it promises: it sucks up the grease of your hair and adds texture. It may volumize depending on your type of hair. I think I would only use it as a "last resort" thing (think camping, backpacking, maybe?), because my hair was very dry the whole day until I washed it (that's what I expected anyway). It does come off in a single wash, differently from some waxes I've used before.

neat idea, but not for me
Sampled

I like the idea of this product, giving the fresh from the beach look, but I think my hair is just too long for it to work properly.

Interesting, but not for me
Sampled

As far as this type of hair products go, it worked exceedingly well. I won't purchase again, however, and I'm not a fan of the "waxy" products.

it's ok
Sampled

It seems to work pretty well. It holds my hair in place and has a pretty good feel, but I don't like the scent (kind of clay-like?) and it's pretty hard to wash out of my hair.
