Need more hold and less shine? Try Hanz de Fuko’s matte finish Sponge Wax.

Hanz de Fuko

Birchbox Breakdown

The problem: You’re a fan of the slicked back, rockabilly-inspired 'do—but you don’t want to look like a used car salesman. The solution: This lightweight pomade will keep your locks firmly in place, lend your hair a light and subtle glossy shine, minus any of the grease monkey effect.

How it Works

This medium-hold formula is water soluble—which means it’s softer and less greasy than its mineral oil predecessors, while still giving your hair smoothness and definition. Plus, it washes out easily.

How to Use

Apply to fingertips, then work into wet hair for that polished, Fred Astaire-like do. Or use on dry hair to add texture and shine.

Purified Water, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Castor Oil,  Hydrolyzed Quinoa  Protein, Butyrospermum Parkii  Fruit, Salvia Officinalis Oil, Phenyl Trimethicone, Mica, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Alumina, Natural  Fragrance.

Like any of these Paul needs that they give me for the hair but this was very nice I like the smell and it makes my hair feel sicker and look thicker and it's nice I would consider buying it

Try using it more than once, it'll grow on you
Sampled

i wasn't a fan of the smell at first, but as I used it more it grew on me. It doesn't overpower your senses. The functionality of the product as well is incredible, talk about a mold that doesn't over grease your hair and keeps it in place.

This works great for my hair and it doesn't leave it feeling all stiff and hard and it has a nice smell too.

Pretty good
Sampled

I've never used pomade before as I always use coconut oil. My hair is pretty straight and short so i don't need a lot of product. This stuff smells decent and works good. I don't know if I'd buy it but I'm definitely going to use it.

Nice hold, somewhat irritating
Sampled

I used a dab of this a few times after a shower for my normal workday 'do. Hold lasted all day and definitely delivers on the matte aspect. Negatives are that it's a bit hard to work with on dry hair, you really have to spread it around first or you'll get uneven application. Also, my scalp felt quite a bit drier when using this product.

great product with lightweight feel

Ladies and gentlemen, a birchbox winner! This will definitely be repurchased over and over until the bf changes his 'do to longer flowy locks. It has the perfect combination of lightweightedness and hold.
