My hair gets greasy so very easy not when I started using this. If like me your hair gets greasy just withing hours of wash and you don't like having a shiny hair look that comes from using wax or gel. Then I highly recommend this product.
I bought this in July 2016 and currently it is Jan 2017, I still have half of the product left and I use this very often at least 3-4 times a week. A little product goes a long way.
The only downside is, it is very difficult to wash. Whilst washing your hair it does feel like having sand in your hair hence 4 stars otherwise hands down this product is a 5 star product for me. If you can get a year usage out of this price then I believe it is so worth the price. I will definitely be ordering it again.

Not to mention QuickSand is the best product.
Because this product absorbs sebum and oil in the hair
I use it mainly in summer.
One disadvantage is that it is difficult to wash.

For ages I have been after a product for my fine hair which would not make it feel and look greasy as the day went one. This is perfect, gives it a thick texture and Can be re-worked again and again. I bought claymation first which was just ok, this by far is much better.

'Quicksand' is a unique product that blends both a hair wax and a dry shampoo.
This product works ideally for those that are out for matte-look hairstyles with sustainable hold throughout the day and that isn't too greasy in its application.
With only a small fingertip's scoop required to style an entire head of hair, depending on the intended hairstyle, this product's value for money is colossal. The product has shown magnificent ability to last all day on dry days, and around 7 hours for wetter or more humid days.
On clean hair, this product works like most hair waxes with the exception that is produces a higher volume capacity for most hairstyles, fine and thin hair included. On second day hair, the dry shampoo factor kicks in and makes second day styling a breeze. Paired with a dry shampoo, your head of hair can be left looking exactly as good as new.
Another pro is the fact that 'Quicksand' is 100% organic, paraben and sulphate free, and has a very faint scent to it (ideal for those that are always at odds with the varying scents that come with the many hair products available on the market).
Definitely a recommended product, this is one I would personally commend as one of the best hair styling products I have ever used in my life!

I have quite thick hair, and living in London where it rains or just feels wet when you go out...Quicksand is the answer.
It has a completely no greasy feel when applied to your hair. it has quite a good hold through the day and stays strong even when it rains.
it's also flexible and you can reshape anytime you want.

It creates a very dry, matte and natural textured look on your hair, however i do prefer a little stronger hold. Claymation provides this stronger hold but it's a bit shinier and is harder to apply.
I recommend you try this one cocktailed with claymation. This way I get a very good hold, easy application and very dry, matte texture.

It doesnt have shine wich is good for light hair.
Have a good hold for medium hair.
But however the smell isnt too good.

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.
