Hanz de Fuko Quicksand

A shower isn't the only solution for flat or greasy hair. This 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
Purchased

This product does a great job of providing adequate hold with a matte finish. I have thin hair, and it is very difficult to find products which provide this combination for it. My only complaint is the texture, which doesn't exactly scream "run your hands through my hair," but I guess that is the required trade off.

kinda heavy

I've used this product before and wasn't really happy with it. It is very heavy and weighs down your hair. It does a job of styling but for me made it look too much like I had a lot of product in my hair and I didn't use that much.

Mixed Results...

I received the product when I had short hair and liked the results. Alas, since my hair is now considerable longer, I did not like the look or feel of my hair when adding the product to the longer hair. Personal preference; I do recommend it to short cuts.

Long hair don't care
Purchased

Short or long hair this stuff is great. I think the best part is that you can remold your hair on the go without re applying any more product. Definintely worth checking out.

Great hold, great price
Purchased

I bought this on a whim and I'm shockingly happy with it. I've been using another product that I liked, but it seemed there was a very fine line between not enough product and having my greasy head visible from space. I rarely found that line, so NASA always knew where to find me.

So far with this, even if I use too much I never look like I used too much...it's always matte. The hold is great and I can definitely tell the difference in volume or thickness (or whatever). That said, I do always wash my hair when I shower so I've never used this on dirty hair.

This is 25% more product and 10 bucks cheaper than what I had been using and I get better results. Will definitely be buying again.

Great for Texture

This stuff is great if you want texture in your hair. A little goes a LONG way. Kind of has a grimy feeling with a peculiar scent that is not bad, just different. Be forewarned, this stuff will not give you any shine whatsoever. You can constantly mess with your hair throughout the day if you want to fix your hair, or even change it up a little. Overall its a great product!

Ok - bad side effects
Purchased

This has been a good product for style. Definitely allows you to shape your hair the way you want to. That said, a disappointing side effect has been the fact that it makes your hair painfully dry - it also takes a number of washes to come out.

Absolutely Amazing. Best Hair Product Ever
Purchased

Um, how do I say this? I am in love with this product. I bought it after reading the hair style guide and shoehorning myself into the "straight/thinning" category, notwithstanding that my hair is more straight than thin (although I have concerns about my hair falling out - who doesn't?). I also recently changed my hair style to be more chic and this stuff produced an excellent result on its first use. My new coiff looked fantastic and was completely malleable and looking great even after flying 12 hours with my Bose QC15s smashing my hair against my scalp. Excellent stuff and will definitely be buying again...

MATT LOOK
Purchased

If you like that matt, slept- in, messy look its a good product, it does dry it out bit and a little clumpy. But if you have short thick hair that gets greasy fast, then this would be good for you.

Great texture and hold

This stuff gives my hair that tousled but under control look that can be tricky to attain. The texture is gritty, definitely similar to a day at the beach. It also keeps my hair from looking too greasy, which happens with a lot of other styling products.
