As of 5 December 2016,
Ego Botanikare website lacks the English-language "suflate-free"
statements, but continues to say in Italian:
“Tutte le formulazioni sono senza: Solfati, Parabeni, SLES, SLS,
Coloranti Sintetici, Lanolina e Ftalati. Tutti i prodotti sono stati
testati dermatologicamente, Nichel, Cromo e Cobalto.”
Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate,
Citrus Junos Fruit Extract,
Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil Phytosterol Esters,
Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride,
acrylates/C10-30 alylacrylate crosspolymer,
Methoxy PEG/PPG-7/3 Aminopropyl Dimethicone,
The ingredients are quite different
from the neQual shampoo.
Perhaps most significantly, the Botanikare is sulfate-free, whereas
the neQual has sulfate ingredients. The Alter
Ego website says,
“The protecting properties of Yuzu combined with the softening,
protecting and nourishing properties of the multi-benefit eco-certified
phytosterols have been chosen to rebalance and prepare both the hair and
scalp to receive the energizing anti-hair loss prevention treatment.”
In other words, it is one part of the anti-hair-loss treatment. The
other part is the leave-in hair lotion or “drops”. Alter Ego
has long offered a wide variety of these (next section), such as the
Energizing Hair Lotion, which is still included in the Hair Loss
Combination Set, along with the Botanikare shampoo. But now there are
two new Botanikare lotions: the Botanikare
Day Therapy Energizing Superactive Lotion for fragile scalp and thinning
hair (single-application ampoules), and
Energizing Superactive Tonic (dropper bottle).

Alter Ego hair lotions
Let's look at two of the Alter Ego “drops” (lotions). These are
to be applied in small quantities after shampooing and conditioning,
massaged gently into the scalp, and left on (not rinsed out).
Honestly, it's impossible to find out what exactly the differences are among
these lotions. Alter Ego does not provide explicit guidelines for which one
is for which type of hair with which type of problem,
but instead uses vague adjectives like revitalizing,
restructurizing, and so on. The only specific information offered is
that the neQual Energizing Lotion and Curativ Cren are for fine and
weak hair, and the Herb Ego Fresca is for limp and damaged hair.
Nevertheless the reviews for all of them say that they stop hair loss and
breakage and promote hair growth. Obviously results can vary from person to
person, but the best way to choose among them is read the reviews of each
one to find the one with the best reviews from people who have hair like
yours with problems like yours.
Let's start with the neQual
Intensive Energizing Hair Lotion... “The synergic action of the
Herbal and Seaweed extracts in its formula helps rebalance and purify the
scalp. The nourishing and energizing properties of its selected active
principles Soya and Wheat Proteins help nourish the hair bulb and increase
the oxygen intake.
Intensive treatment ideal for weak and fine hair. May cause skin
redness.” Click here

washing. I was buying this product from my hairdresser and it was
expensive. Since I found it here at Amazon, I have been buying it here.
is a “treatment that restructures the hair and
revitalises the scalp. This lotion is an optimum natural energy restorative
that feeds both the hair and the scalp, putting back mineral salts, protein
and vitamins, thanks to the innovative use of seaweed extract and soy
seeds.” It is used the same way as the Energizing Lotion and according
to the reviews, achieves the same results:

The Revitalizing Lotion and the Energizing Lotion are very similar, but the
Energizing Lotion is especially formulated for fine hair, whereas the
Revitalizing Lotion is for all types of hair. Both of them leave your scalp
with a tingly feeling for a few minutes.
