A widely compatible over-the-top drain cover
Effortlessly catch hair without blocking water flow with this silicone and stainless steel drain protector that has over 23,400 five-star ratings on Amazon. The tall dome shape accommodates most drains, including both flat and pop-up styles, and the edges sit flush with the tub floor, making it effective in catching hair and debris. The flexible design makes it easy to dump hair after each use.
A highly rated discreet in-the-drain tub shroom
If you want to avoid seeing hair gathering in your drain catcher, the "Tub Shroom" fits snugly inside the drain and catches hair in its stalk, away from sight. This hair catcher has over 72,800 five-star reviews on Amazon and is made from industrial-grade silicone. To clean, just pull out the shroom, wipe it clean with a tissue and replace.
A shower wall mount to catch loose hair strands
If you find your hands become full of stray tangled strands every time you wash your hair, this clever hair catcher can grab and hold that hair instead of if it being washed down the drain to start a clog or plastered on your shower wall. It uses suction cups to mount securely on the shower wall, and soft silicone teeth grab and capture hair with one pass of your hand. Plus, cleanup is easy.
A dual-purpose drain stopper and hair catcher for people who love baths
It can be a hassle to go back and forth between a bath stopper and a hair catcher each time you want to take a bath.This dual-purpose option allows you to do both with just a press of the center button. Made from a flexible and water-resistant material, this hair catcher can easily be placed in most standard tub and shower drains. When open, it allows water, not hair, to flow through. When closed, it's an effective tub stopper that allows you to fill the bath with water.
An effective drain clog remover that won't harm your septic system
Unlike traditional clog-clearing gels and solution that are made from harmful chemicals that can get into waterways and septic systems, the Green Gobbler drain cleaner is made with biodegradable materials to break down everything from hair clogs to shampoo residue buildup. Just pour one pack down the drain, allow it to sit then follow up with warm water. This five-pack also comes with drain snakes to help remove extra-stubborn hair clogs.
A hardly noticeable drain protector with a hair-catching string
This low-maintenance and disposable hair catcher is compatible with grate-covered drains and features a long hair-grabbing string to catch hair before it goes too far down the pipe, causing a clog. Plus, the disposable design means you can bin hair and debris without ever having to touch it. Just remove and replace the catcher every two to four months, depending on how much you shed. This set comes with a pack of two drain catchers.
A pack of disposable mesh drain stickers
These sanitary mesh drain stickers use a waterproof adhesive to stick on top of grate drains, tile and porcelain, and catch hair while allowing water to pass through. Once the mesh catch is full, just remove, throw away and replace with a new mesh sticker approximately every two to three weeks.
