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.

Unusual product with unique results
Purchased

I typically use high hold gels and glues that left my hair shiny and wet looking, as I have had fairly short hair. But I recently grew my hair out to medium length and was looking for a product that had less hold and shine. This does have a gritty feeling, which I was sort of expecting since it has dirt in it, but I got used to it and kind of like it now. It does have a unique odor, but a female friend of mine noticed it the other day and said she thought it smelled great! I find it has medium hold for my frizzy hair, but does not straighten waviness very well. Still, it gives a unique modern look and I would recommend if you're seeking a change of pace from typical hair products.

Honestly!...
Purchased

Hanz de Fuko is one of my favorite hair products on the market these days. Thanks to Birchbox I now understand how to properly style my hair without some stupid gel/wax I used when I was in middle school!

Great hair styling product from an amazing company
Purchased

I love the matte finish that this product gives along with the high volume. The texture is very unique, as it has a gritty, sandy feeling when applied to hair. I use this mostly as a cocktail in conjunction with other hair products and it gives me the desired result I want. It does have a weird smell at first, but that is to be expected, as it's made of a special dirt. This is a must try, and I love the fact it doubles as a dry shampoo.

Strong Hold

For having thin-receding hair, this wax has a strong natural hold. small amount needed to be applied and had a clean and clear finish.

Great Product

Holds well, smells great. Also nice to have the option for matte or glossy finish by putting on with wet or dry hair. Easy to apply and looks great!

Perfect first layer
Purchased

Love this new product and it's become part of my daily routine. Cocktail with Sponge Wax each morning for my short-medium length hair. Perfect first layer to give texture to my fine hair. Could use alone if just going for beach hair, but if need something more professional, add another product and it doesn't get too heavy at all. HDF products are fantastic and even though look small, jars last for months!

Interesting product!

I've figured out that the best time my hair looks is about one day after I've washed it. If I go for any longer than a day without washing, you can definitely start to notice my body's natural oils seeping into my hair. This product definitely works great to combat that greasy look. Although I do have to agree with those that are slightly put off by the smell and texture.

Nice hold but at a price
Purchased

This product gives you a strong hold but it leaves my hair hard to run my fingers through. It is a very coarse product and leaves your hair smelling strange. If you are looking for a product with a tremendous hold this might work for you.

Great Surf Hair
Purchased

This works great with my shorter hair. While it doesn't give me a finished look, it definitely provides a casual one. It also keeps my hair from becoming greasy all day!

I would suggest using this as a base, and then finishing with a wax.

Not for Daily Use
Purchased

I enjoy this product occasionally- but I found it dried my hair out too much to use daily. It works very well, but just be aware that it does have a drying quality to it.
