The Ultimate guide to Hanz de Fuko men's hair styling products
Getting a grip on what hair styling product suits you is one of the holy grails of men's grooming. And with women declaring how you style your hair as the most important type of grooming, it's of the utmost importance to arm yourself with all the tools you need to get your look on point.
Well, lads, Hanz de Fuko is here with the goods. Since 2009, these amazing Americans have been helping guys like you get the style and profile they deserve. From getting each and every hair to stay in place, to making sure it stays clean, happy, and healthy, these guys just know what is up with men's haircare and styling. And they won't be pumping your follicles full of garbage, either, as they're all about using natural and organic ingredients.
Here's a little rundown of some of Hanz de Fuko's best and brightest – and how they can help you sort out your styling situation.
Hanz de Fuko Claymation
For the man whose hair needs to be held all through the day and night
Hanz de Fuko Claymation is for the guys who want to keep that top-shelf style going for miles. Or days. Or nights. Or however long you need. One of the most popular styling clays in the world and considered by many to be the jewel in the Hanz de Fuko crown, this Claymation doesn’t play. It's a clay-wax hybrid that features some of the brand's wicked Quicksand and steams in with a strong all-day hold that stands up to everything from your motorbike helmet to an intense session at the gym.
And perhaps best of all, it's not super hard to figure out how to apply Hanz de Fuko Claymation. Make sure your hair is dry. Then get a little pea-sized pinch into your hands and give it a rub to warm it up. Like wasabi on your sushi, a little dab will do ya. When it's nice and spreadable, run it through your hair until you start to see that nice textured look you're hunting. Add a bit more as needed, but don't go overboard.
Hanz de Fuko Quicksand
For the man who wants to look the right kind of slick
Hanz de Fuko Quicksand is made for dudes with a bit too much shine. And we don't mean happy, confident vibes. We're talking about that oily look that doesn't do anybody any favours. With Quicksand, you can get that ideal hold without adding any extra gloss to your 'do. That's because this bad boy combines the powers of styling wax and dry shampoo, giving you high hold while also soaking up extra oil that's giving you fits. It does this with the help of diatomaceous earth, a type of rock that's similar to pumice. I guess you could say this stuff rocks? (yikes)
If you're rocking some second-day hair, just use a little pinch of this by rubbing it in your hands to warm it up, and then getting in there nice and deep to start at the roots and work your way out. Alternatively, you can also use it on slightly damp hair to pump up the volume.
Quicksand can be a saviour for styling thinning hair, giving you a chance to add some texture that can give the impression of increased volume and a fuller mane. At the same time, it's awesome for those with thicker heads of hair, as it has the strength to hold without adding that oily look and feel. And to top it all off, it's best mates with Hanz de Fuko Sponge Wax. Speaking of which…
Hanz de Fuko Sponge Wax
For the flexible man who wants the style to match
See what we did there? That's called a transition, baby! Hanz de Fuko Sponge Wax is for guys who want to call the shots with their style. It's part men's pomade, part hair gel, so it's a bit of a best of both worlds type operation.
What makes this men's hair wax so wicked is it can play a variety of roles in your hair styling routine. Sponge Wax walks the fine line between hold and pliability, so you can shape your style as you see fit without worrying about it falling over the second you walk out the door. But it can also step in and act as a pre-styler, prepping your hair for other Hanz de Fuko fun, or as a thermal protectant if you are using a blow dryer.
Sponge Wax is great for keeping thicker, fuller hair looking its best – and staying its healthiest. It's chock full of amazing ingredients for your follicles, including jojoba oil, castor seed oil and eucalyptus extract that can help repair, strengthen, and promote hair growth.
Just rub a bit of this magic between your fingers and start working it through your hair until you reach your 'do destination.
Hanz de Fuko Heavymade
For the debonair man who's about town when's the sun's out
Hanz de Fuko Heavymade can take the weight of worrying about your hair off your shoulders, especially if you're the type who loves to be on the go. It's great for those who fancy themselves a bit of an Elvis style ‘do, as it can help you get that smooth, stylish coif sitting pretty. But it's also a great option for those looking for ways to style their short, curly hair, especially if you like tighter curls that need a bit more juice in the holding department.
This extreme hold, high-shine masterpiece is also humidity resistant, so your hair won't go on the fritz when the temperature goes up. Before you head out into the heat, just rub some Heavymade between your fingers and hands and get to work. You can individually style parts of your hair, or take a more whole-headed approach depending on what you're after.
