I ordered Hanz de Fuko Quicksand after I tried out their Claymation, which was not the right product for my hair.
Quicksand provides enough hold, has zero shine and does not leave an unpleasant feeling after washing your hair (like Kevin Murphy Rough Rider for example).
This will be my every day styling product from now on.
Delivery to germany was very quick (4 days).

Great quality product. Strong hold that lasts all day and works on long and short hair.
Product is also natural so is suitable for people with sensitive scalps like mine

Overall its an interesting product. The organic compounds make it smell like garlic bread and it doesn't seem to keep much hold for medium length hair. Probably would do better in shorter hair. But other than that its still a good product that provides flex as well as some hold. I also like the fact that you can use it as a dry shampoo.

Both the Claymation and Quicksand offer the best hold on the market without reservation, but please note if you have longer hair (fringe stretches below your eyes when pulled) it isn't going to hold. No wax or clay or anything will hold that.

Purchased quicksand in May 2016 and initial thoughts are not good. The packaging is the same but the contents is not the same as the US version.
The US version has a nice texture, sandy grain in feel, a fruity smell offers a superior hold. The UK version I bought from mankind is too soft, no smell and you need to use a lot to get any hold.
I'm not sure if Hanz has changed it's ingredients for the UK market but this is not a product I would recommend. The US version I purchased last year from the US (4x quicksand) is a much better product.

So this is first time I used this, this product is part styling gel and part dry shampoo? Sooo... I like it, hold is good not extreme, you can change the hair all day couple of times even after sleeping, just syle it or do it with wet hands. Hold is about 3 out of 5 (5 being the spiky gels you get in market). Look is definitely matt and dryish, reduces shine because of dry shampoo in it.

Works exactly as expected. The matte finish is absolutely fantastic. Will be buying again. Great delivery as well from ManKind, was here in just two days on standard delivery!

As this product is also a dry shampoo, it helps wash away any excess weight that is in my very fine hair (which would weigh it down). Using only half a fingertips worth in damp hair, I am able to achieve perfect volume with a hairdryer without the need for a finishing product, or a hairspray.
I have been looking for a product that adds texture, volume, and a very high but flexible hold for around 6 months and I have finally found it. And it has exceeded expectations!
Won't recommend anything else, especially to those with fine/thiner hair.

Really love claymation by HDF and ordered quicksand for a change to see how it works. Nice product as usual from a great hair range. Gives you a sandy feel to your hair whilst there is a dry shampoo effect to it that keeps your hair healthy. Great If you want to boost your hair volume.

This hair product has replaced all my other Matt options. It holds well and the dry shampoo stops your hair dulling and getting greasy through out the day.

I've tried so many pomades, matte & styling products but this 1 is a belter in my opinion. A small amount gives you cracking style in dry hair and even better after 2/3 days use without washing your hair as it doesn't wash out fully leaving you to reapply and create better styles. For a quick hit in a morning if your running a tight schedule this works a dream. Doesn't smell of much though it's a an absolute beaut this quicksand matte/dry shampoo.

good but it could be a bigger package

Strong hold, nice texture, smells alright but hard to wash out from your hair.

I love this wax as it gives my thin hair some decent volume and doesn't make my hair greasy because of the part dry hair powder mix.
I highly recommend this to anyone with thin hair.

Quite simply this product is completely unique.
A very tiny amount will hold your hair in place all day and because it's super matte it will look like completely natural as thought you're not wearing any product at all. Completely what I've been looking for in a styling products for many years. The only reason I haven't given this product five stars is despite the fact it looks completely natural, it does tend to have an odd effect on my hair and make it feel like straw/candyfloss plus it is quite difficult to wash out but I'm no doubt there's a specialist shampoo out there which will work.
In conclusion, if you want a product which holds your hair in place whilst looking completely natural then this product is perfect for you.

It was okay, made hair way too dry and hold on flexible not 'high hold'.
Great dry shampoo to use after few days without washin g

I tryed cause i saw it on YouTube . I bought claymation first then quicksand. This product really works as a dry shampoo, for the second or third day. I didn 't like it as a prestyler and i actually didn't love it as daily product. Buy this one if u need something to put on ur wet hair when they are not perfectly clean. Instead, if u want a product that styles ur everyday hair, or even prestyle, buy claymation

This product is exceptional at its intended purpose, high hold with a matte finish, perfect for hair that is naturally more greasy. If that's what you're looking for then this is the product for you.
However, it is also exceptionally well at drying your hair out at the same time, I would definitely recommend a high quality natural conditioner for your hair, something like argan oil. A good shampoo will easily wash the product out aswell despite the negative reviews regarding that, I use organic argan oil shampoo and its cleansed the product out with the first wash.
Overall, I would say this shouldn't be a primary hair styling product, maybe combine it with another hanz de fuko product or use it on days you don't want to wash your hair, otherwise I'd use something less drying for your hair like claymation.

Takes a while to know how to use the product correctly and it has its on and off days. It's hard to tell if you have used too little or too much until about an hour after you put the product on and it is impossible to fix

I have mid-length dark hair and this product left my hair feeling and looking incredibly dry – it left my hair feeling like tumble weed. I've bought a lot of hair products in my life and this has to be the driest ever. It smells like clay.
It was difficult to apply evenly as my fingers kept getting stuck wherever the first point of contact was. I even tried it on damp hair but that was no better.
My girlfriend hated it as she couldn't run her hand through my hair and demanded I never use it again.
If you're looking for a natural adult look and hold, stay clear of this product. I'm not sure why anyone would put this product in their hair. It was a waste of money and I will have to give it away – preferably, to someone I don't like.
On a good note: it washes out ok.
