Every household needs a pair of drain snakes for the bathroom. Especially those with long hair! I got this pair of two of them on Amazon.
I actually like this set of drain snakes. They work really well and they are simple, no frills, but those are often the ones that are best anyway. They are extremely flexible and sturdy. This makes them easy to store (see below for a storage idea)
Both are very simple to use. I prefer the silver one for shower drains and the orange one for sinks, but they are interchangeable and you can use whichever one works best for your needs, wherever those are.
While being simple to use, what usually comes out of the drain is extremly gross, so might I recommend some gloves and some disposable container to collect your hair and other items that come up. Disposable means you can take it right to the trash.
When you live in a house with people with long hair, these are must. They do what they say they will, and they do it well.
Drain Snake Storage idea:
I store mine in a trimmed down wrapping paper tube. They just slip inside and I can place them under my sink in the back for the next time I use them. I like using the wrapping paper tubes because they are easy to store, take up little space and I can dispose of the tube when it gets dirty or gross and use another one. You could also use a paper towel tube and bend them (they come bent) and are very flexible.
