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

Hanz de Fuko

Birchbox Breakdown

This matte-finish, high-hold wax from Hanz de Fuko combines the pliability of a pomade with the staying power of a gel. Lightweight and water-soluble, it taps natural plant extracts to add thickness and fullness while allowing you to separate, mold, and sculpt your ’do.

How to Use

Ideal for short- to medium-length hair, the versatile formula is good for everything from grungy bed-head to more polished coifs. Rub a small amount between your fingers to soften. Use on dry hair to add definition or wet hair for control.

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.

Good for fine hair
Sampled

This is exactly the type of hair product I like to use to give my fine hair some body. I recommend using this sponge wax if you desire a hold without the sheen of a pomade.

Leaves a film in your hair. It works like a pomade, but I don't generally use pomade so this review is unfavorable because of that. Leaves hair waxy.

Not too soft, not too stiff

It's just right! My hair is thick and a little wavy and needs a little "direction". However unless I'm trying to look dapper in a tornado I don't need the Elmer's glue style of hold. With this you can still run your fingers through and your hair appears to just flow the way you style it. It also smells good. One thing to note: the Claymation is their version of Elmer's glue. While it may be good for some folks, it's too much hold for me. IMHO.

Not great overall
Sampled

The scent was ok, but the description for this product is wrong in my opinion. I have long fine hair. I didn't notice any difference in look or hold at all.

Not Bad

Great smell and a great hold. So far, anything I've tested from Hanz de Fuko has been great. Doesn't leave you feeling like a greaseball but does what it's supposed to do.

Good for matte finish.

Tried this a couple weeks ago - works good for a matte finish. Not really my style, but I noticed that a little goes a long way when you're using it.

works well

Sample is really small, so I didn't get too much use from that, but that said, it worked well enough. I don't know that it will displace what I am using now, but it worked.
