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.

awesome smell, non-wet look. Sandy smooth feel gives it a lot of texture and helps it to feel soft without all of the wetness of normal gels.

Alright

It feels fairly dry and I had a bit of trouble getting used to this product. Overall it's alright, but I am not impressed.

Great Stuff
Purchased

I have fairly long, thin wavy hair and when I get up on Saturday morning it tends to have that "it has been a rough week" look. This stuff does quickly gives me control of my hair and has great longevity. I must warn that it can give you a sort of hay quality if applied too liberally. There is a fine balance to this one but, it is well worth it once struck.

A little too much
Purchased

This quicksand is a little too much when it comes to me. I like being able to run my hands through my hair and this has too tight of a hold. Also it tends to not break down as much as I'd like.

Definitely a left the beach look
Purchased

This is a great product for that look. Definitely not remold-able throughout the day if you use too much. Good to have but wouldn't use daily

eh, fairly disappointing
Purchased

First off, the stuff smells. No one wants their head smelling like play doug, and the smell lasts all day. Second, I wouldn't recommend doing as the description says and use it for day-after grooming. It didn't help soak up and excess oils as it says it will and while the hold is okay, it's really nothing special. With the gritty texture of the stuff, you'd think it would add more lift to limp hair, but I'd imagine it only really helps thicker hair types. It did completely change the texture of my otherwise fine hair but not in a way I liked. With some products you're allowed the freedom of being able to run your fingers through your hair, but not with this one.

Great for building up volume!
Purchased

The Quicksand is fairly dry on its own but gets great results with a little blow drying! I mix it with a little pomad or shine serum and get great results! I quickly used my sample and have already ordered more!

Its in a class of its own!
Purchased

What an innovative product. I've tried and stockpiled over 50 types of hair styling products and nothing compares to this. Gives your hair an amazing matte finish, unparalleled texture, and is very pliable throughout the day. I would equate the texture and scent to essentially being a dry shampoo is a soft paste form.
I also just want to say looking at most of the reviews on here it doesn't deserve anything less than 4 stars. A majority of the negative reviews, people are just clueless. It's as if they didn't even read what the purpose of the product is and whats in it. Its not an out and out dry shampoo so you shouldn't treat it as such. Furthermore, its not made to create shine, its suppose to be matte. And lastly for everyone with problems with the texture its called Quicksand for a reason, it's suppose to be grainy and dry, its part dry shampoo and is made from diatomaceous earth. It doesn't warrant a negative review just because it doesn't fit what you're personally looking for in a product.

Great

This hair styler is great, although I'm not sure about encouraging not showering! It feels good to put in with a great texture and hold. I like the fact that it is easy to remold if you decide to!

Great for thin hair.
Purchased

Love this product, I like to couple it with the pomade to give my hair some volume + that signature pomade look.

This product is fantastic - it leaves no visible residue, no shine, but adds a TREMENDOUS amount of volume to your hair. It is hard to brush through once it's set (and really does feel like you've been in the ocean all day/sand - so you have to make sure you comb the product in and into the right style before it fully sets.
