Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Warm a dime-sized amount in your palm. Apply to oily, second-day hair to add lift and a matte texture, or massage into wet hair for volume.

Best hair product I have used

I have tried several different brands and this one is the best. Holds your hair in place without feeling like you have anything in it. I just slightly wet my hair and put a pea size amount of product in my palm. Hanz de Puko Quicksand works all day, I really enjoy this product.

That feel after leaving the beach

I’ve had trouble finding a good product for my hair that is really moldable but has no sheen or grease residue. This is the most matte of any hair product I’ve used, and can either be used with just a subtle effect or can completely style your hair. I have bangs that like to fall, but this product can hold them in place nicely through the whole day.

I have thick wavy hair. I have seen ppl use the wrong amount and saying it isn't for thick wavy/curly hair. well the way I found out is you use a pinch amount Rubb with all 8 finger tips and run thr the roots of the hair. no dont need to rubb on
the balms just finger tips.

Dried hair out so much.

I have heard such great things about HDF. If you have longer straight hair that flows easy, this might work. But I have thick wavy hair that naturally is a little dry. This product is so hard to work through my hair. And it leaves it looking so dry and unhealthy. It literally feels gritty as you spread it. It's just not right if you have hair that is naturally dry. I will try other HDF products because this one just isn't right for my hair type

A little strange to work with

I got this for my boyfriend to try out, and it ended up taking the both of us to figure out how to get his hair to do its normal 'do. It didn't have the hold we were thinking it would, and has a very odd, fine-grainy texture (which was expected). Now, it does mattify the hair significantly, and it didn't look all that oily (but his hair is shorter so it never looks truly dirty). It has a very, very mild fragrance that is so light it's a bit difficult to pinpoint; when I ordered it I couldn't find anyone who described the scent other than saying they enjoyed it, but to me I picked up what smelled just like peanut shells... odd, but at least it's barely noticeable.
