Customer Reviews:

Unbeatable Texture and Hold

I'm impressed with its performance. It adds a lot of texture to my hair and holds it all day. There's no product build-up, and it doesn't make my hair feel heavy or greasy. I'd definitely buy it again!

Quite Expensive

I must say, while it worked well, I was a bit taken aback by the price. Given the amount needed for each use, it doesn't last very long. I think it's a little too pricey for what it is.

Effective for Oily Hair

As someone with oily hair, this has been a game-changer. It gives my hair a clean, matte finish and reduces oiliness significantly. Plus, it leaves my hair looking fuller and thicker. Truly a fantastic product!

Moderate Satisfaction

It's not a bad product by any means. It does offer a good hold and it's nice for adding texture. But, it didn't exactly blow me away. It's decent, but not outstanding.

Difficult to Apply

Unfortunately, I found it somewhat difficult to work into my hair. The texture is quite gritty, which makes application a bit challenging. I wish it was easier to apply and spread evenly.

Good, but Not Exceptional

It's a good product overall. The hold is decent and it does add some texture. However, considering the price and difficulty in application, I would say it's just okay, nothing extraordinary.

Product Summary:

Hanz de Fuko's Quicksand is a versatile styling product that offers a medium-firm hold and control, along with the flexibility for easy restyling. It features a unique claylike, earthy, and damp scent and is adept at creating a clean, matte look with added volume. This product is particularly effective for thin and short hair, making it ideal for achieving natural, wild, and messy styles. Its ease of application and instant drying contribute to a natural hair appearance, enhanced by its distinctive "sandy" texture.

While Quicksand is on the pricier side, it proves its value by holding up well throughout the day, even in humid conditions, and is easy to wash out with just water and shampoo. However, it may not be the best choice for those with thick or wavy hair, as it can lead to a greasy, heavy feeling, as well as causing dryness and stiffness. Users should also be aware that it can sometimes leave behind residue or white specks in the hair. Therefore, it's important to apply the right amount and distribute it evenly to minimize these potential issues.
