My Philosophy

Chemical products and prescription hair loss treatments may be the quick fix, but are they the best?

In the vast majority of cases, I would say no. In fact, why use potentially harmful products with an endless list of complications and side effects when you there are non-chemical means available too?

That’s the philosophy I incorporate into my daily life, and the one which I hope Hairguard clearly reflects.

About Will Hartfield

Hi, my name is Will! I’m someone who knows what it’s like to live with a receding hairline, but I’m also someone who has reclaimed my hair, my confidence, and my life.

I’ve earned my degree in biomedical engineering, and I’m on a mission to find the most effective hair loss treatment that work without side-effects.

In fact, I’ve been on this journey for four years and have had great success in treating my hair loss and regrowing my hair.

In my early twenties, I began to notice a thinning hairline. Even worse, my hairline was receding. I tried Rogaine and Propecia – the only FDA-approved hair treatments on the market – but was unhappy with the side effects.

After all, does anyone really want to suffer from loss of libido in order to regrow their hair?

In addition, I knew once treatment ended, so too would the results.

That’s when I shifted my focus away from covering up the symptoms, and instead decided to tackle the source of my problems.

Since that time, I’ve has spent countless hours researching and testing different hair loss treatments.

From scalp massages to vitamin supplements to PRP, botox and more, I’ve made it my mission to find the best hair growth treatments available.

My hope is to inspire and instruct hair loss sufferers worldwide.

  1. Hi, ive been following you guys for a few months now and i know for a fact you have more articles than these, so i was wondering if there is a link that shows all the archived posts made from 2015 onwards? or whenever you started posting online.
    I ask because if you search you can find some important articles back in 2016, so i’d like to have an easier search option so i can go straight to the article rather than having to hopefully find it through a google search, that would be most appreciated if so.

    Thanks!
