Birchbox Breakdown

We love a good 2-in-1 product——like this matte finish, high-hold wax, which combines the pliability of a pomade with the staying power of a gel. Lightweight and water soluble, it taps organic ingredients and natural plant extracts to add thickness and fullness while allowing you to separate, mold, and sculpt your ‘’do. Ideal for short- to medium-length hair, the versatile formula is good for everything from grungy bed-head to more polished coifs.

Awesome Product!
Purchased

I have tried many of Hanz de Fuko products: Sponge Wax, Claymation and Quicksand. This Sponge Wax turns out to be the best product for me. It holds my hair in place all day and it is super easy to apply to my damp hair. No sticky feel and doesn't weight hair down (I have thick Asian hair)

Also, Sponge Wax can be washed off easily unlike Claymation and Quicksand which leave my hair feeling waxy even after I shampoo my hair twice. Highly recommend this product.

Matte Finish But Not High Hold

When I read that it had "the staying power of gel" I was intrigued and thought it might be a great option for my straight, light, hair. Although it did have a matte finish and offered just a hint of gloss, it was not high hold and my hair flopped after less than an hour out. May this isn't the perfect product for me but is still worth a second chance.

Not Totally Matte Finish
Purchased

I decided to give the Sponge Wax a try after a year of using Claymation.

I love that it's really lightweight and washes out easily, whereas the Claymation was the opposite.

However, it was not really a matte finish. Even after totally drying my hair out, the Sponge Wax gives off a little shine. You have to break it up after you apply it to get rid a real matte finish.

Other than that I think it is a nice product.

All day hold
SampledPurchased

Strong hold without a strong smell. Sponge Wax provides hold that lasts all day without the look of a strong pomade or cream. Its light texture leaves almost no residue to the touch.

Great Product

I received this as a sample and immediately bought the full size. This product is the perfect balance between pomade and gel. I just LOVE it. If you have normal to dry straight hair this product is for you.I highly recommend it .

Not the best
Sampled

I have tried a ton of hair products. This one was not my favorite. I realize it is a "wax" ... but man this is hard to get out washing your hair. And I kept finding chunks or clumps of the product in my hair, no matter how much I worked it in my hands prior

Great Hair Styling Product
Sampled

This is one of the birch box samples that I've picked up for daily use. It has great holding power, it's durable for the entire day, and doesn't leave a greasy or oily look to the hair that some products do. The remaining product cleans off the hands easily.

As they say, short to medium hair is best. This is not good for when your hair starts to get a little long.

Great Product

My hair is thick and straight, cut short. Product provides excellent hold, and feels natural. Lasts all day. Haven't been quite satisfied with anything else I've tried after using this product.

Perfect Mix of Pomade and Wax
SampledPurchased

This has become my favorite hair product. It provides the combination of the feel of a wax or clay with the flex of a pomade. I took it into my hairstylist and she was totally impressed. Hair goes just where you want it to. Perfect for "chunked up" styles.
