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.

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.

Claymation is better
Purchased

I really like the Claymation product so I was a bit disappointed with the Quicksand. It left my hair matted and stiff and I do not like the smell.

Everything I wanted it to be, but...
Purchased

The smell! Oh god, the smell.... It holds great, no excess gunk, awesome matte look, but it smells like melted crayons and baby powder. It's almost a total deal breaker, definitely not an everyday product, but it works so well you can almost, ~almost~ overlook the aroma. It lingers, like a Pig-Penesque cloud that just won't go away!

Helmet Head

Perhaps the best product I've gotten from Birchbox. Does an amazing job at curing motorcycle helmet head. Always have a little canister of it in my tankbag now.

Awesome stuff

I've been known to being a little metro with my hair, from the hipster comb over to the fo-hawk; don't judge me your girlfriend likes it. This stuff is great for a long day hold without that waxy, jersey shore shine. It's light in the hair and doesn't give you that gel look. Super cool stuff!

LIke the idea...not the smell.

At first glance the idea of this product was pretty good. A quick dab on your palms and run it thought your hair for a easy style however I cannot get over the smell. This product reminds me of play-dough and smells like a strong version of play-dough.

Good product

This stuff is great for short hair cuts. As a law student, I've had to skip the shower a few times after long nights. The quicksand really helped out.
