Looking for a hair schmoo that’s even more matte, but slightly less stiff? Try Hanz de Fuko Quicksand.

Hanz de Fuko

Birchbox Breakdown

We love a good two-in-one product—who doesn’t?—and this matte finish, high-hold wax combines the pliability of a pomade with the staying power of a gel. Ideal for short- to medium-length hair, the versatile formula is good for everything from grungy, bed-head looks to more polished coifs. Use it to spike your hair or go for a pompadour. The sky’s the limit.

How it Works

The lightweight, water soluble wax, made from organic ingredients and natural plant extracts, thickens and adds fullness while allowing you to separate, mold, and sculpt your ‘do like David Beckham.

How to Use

Rub a small amount between your fingers to soften. Use on dry hair to add definition or wet hair for control.

Love this stuff!!!
Sampled

I've used the same product for over 5 years and this stuff has taken over. Absolutely love it! Holds all day and works perfectly wet or dry!

Great except when hair is long
Sampled

I really loved this product as it didn't leave my hair greasy or shiny and did hold exceptionally well. My only issue was that I have too much hair and it took a lot of product to make a difference. Will definitely use this again when I have a shorter cut.

Great Hold
Sampled

This wax has a great hold. The only problem I had was getting it even in my hair, and that's is probably on me. Otherwise I would use it again

Great Hold and Scent
Sampled

I was impressed by the hold of this hair wax. Most of the time when I use a product like this, it takes some work to get it evenly distributed in my hair, but this went on easily and held well all day long. The best surprise was the great way it smells!

Loved This

I will be buying a full size of this. Great texture and perfect for hair. It isn't too greasy and leaves a nice matte finish.

Great stuff!

It gives a great hold without being too "stiff." Doesn't look like you have a lot of product in your hair also. Will buy again!

Waxes like wax should
Sampled

Plain and simple: good hold, matte finish, flexible, doesn't feel like your hair turned into a helmet.

I use my box samples to take on trips, since the size makes them extremely convenient for that, and keeps airport security off your back whenever you decide that you should be able to travel and not look like some sort of phillistine.

This particular one I took to Chicago in February, which as you may know, pretty much requires protection from the biting cold, such as a knitted wool hat (which I wore).

I wore my hat over my hair styled with this wax and it kept its shape when I took the hat off, something that is hard to accomplish in such situations.

Nice hold without hardening
Sampled

Holds nicely during the day, and doesn't make your hair feel gross. Just didn't provide as much hold as I would like though.

Best for short hair
Sampled

The product is pretty great if you're looking for a stiff product with a heavy hold. It's creamier than gel so it doesn't leave that greasy wet look to your hair. Not as great for medium to long hair as it makes hair pretty much board straight.
