Hanz de Fuko – Quicksand


Use Instructions

Rub a small pinch between your fingertips then apply to second-day hair to add lift and texture or to damp hair (with the use of a blow dryer) to achieve gravity-defying volume!

How It Works

Craving the beach bedhead or other gravity-defying look? Pulling an all-nighter and need your hair to look like you fixed it right out of the shower? Hanz de Fuko – Quicksand would be perfect for you!

It is rather unique in that it gives the hair great lift and volume while absorbing oil. The secret? Its gritty formula contains diatomaceous earth, a soft granular rock similar to pumice that sucks up excess oil on the hair and scalp. It offers a matte finish with a high hold and gives amazing texture—even in fine, limp hair.

As the name implies, Quicksand’s consistency is those of very fine sand, but it spreads very well through your hair. Oddly lightweight, it’s great for those who like their hair “the morning after.” As it is a mix of styling wax and dry shampoo, you can use it on second day hair with the benefit of both a shampoo and a holding factor. It stays flexible throughout the day so you can still move your hair around if you’d like.

On mornings when you’re running late for work, you can use it to get rid of the extra oil and create a quick style on the go. When you have more time, you can use it on damp hair with a blow dryer for an extra punch of volume!

Quicksand provides a huge plus in terms of restyling. One full fingertip of Quicksand on dry hair provides solid hold and volume for roughly five hours—after which it will start to loosen up its grip. When you need more hold, just add more to your hair. No need to worry about your hair gets too greasy because as we mentioned, Quicksand is a dry shampoo too! There is absolutely no shine from the product.

The smell is rather hard to describe…. it’s like a quicksand? However it’s on the light side and we never heard our customers complaining about it. It’s also not that easy to wash out—just how beach-goers and swimmers prefers it to be.

Verdict: A very versatile styling product that you should not go without! You can get it from The Panic Room.
