If you are a gentleman who takes care of your hair, and appreciates investment in quality hair styling products you may well have already heard of Hanz de Fuko. The whole range is superb, made with Certified Organic Extracts and no Parabens. Alongside this eco-friendly approach, the products themselves are the best we’ve tried. There’s no eco-friendly approach purely for marketing purposes.

Dependent on your style, the Hanz de Fuko range currently consists of 7 styling products and a shampoo and conditioner- there are excellent options for all hair types, lengths and styles.

One such product however is getting some serious airtime within the industry: Claymation. The beauty of Hanz de Fuko products is the ability and brand encouragement to mix the products together. Well Claymation does this already, and is made with a touch of Quicksand, to form a “clay-wax” hybrid which delivers a super high-hold for ultimate pliability- perfect for semi-matte hairstyles.

It contains all the best parts of a sculpting clay but combined with a proprietary blend of natural waxes for achieving short-neat hairstyles, carefully sculpted pompadours and or creative works of art that last all day. It’s universally suitable for any hair style, and for those seeking a semi-matte finish.

Just rub a finger-end’s worth between your palms then apply to dry hair for a pliable, semi-matte look, or to damp hair for natural sheen. Claymation is able to hold whatever style you opt for, all day long. And for us, we really enjoy how easily washed out it is (and off hands), the fragrance is subtle so won’t interfere with your fragrance, and it just feels clean including non-greasy.
