    Can anyone recommend a drain filter or a cleaner that's really good at removing hair? I hate having to plunge every 2 to 3 weeks, and I brush my hair a lot. It STILL clogs up the drain

    Liquid Drano melts hair pretty much on contact.

    You may have a clog further down the pipe than just the drain opening if it is backing up often. Despite pulling a wig out of my drain weekly, it was still plugging, so I used a drill driven gizmo that snakes down the pipe to the stack, and pulled out a monster wad of munge that had been in there for years. Even with the weekly deposits in the drain, it still empties well now.

    There are plastic hair sieves you can get that go over the drain to stop hair from going down it, which you should be able to get at most hardware stores. I wouldn't recommend using Drano or the like very often.

    I do have a snake, but the problem is that when we got the bathroom redone they put in this crappy drain hole with 3 arms that come out to hold up the plug. It's very hard to get anything down there.
