I recently bought an item that I thought would help with the shedded hairs that collect in our bathtub. This may not be very pleasant to discuss but I still thought I would share my experience with a product called, the Hair Stopper. My husband has long straight hair and washes it almost daily. I like to co-wash a couple times each week and also detangle my hair while under the running water of the shower. I won't go into detail but we were in need of something to help with the hair that kept building up in the tub. I found the Hair Stopper at Walmart for about $4.50 USD and was really hoping that it would work for us.
How it works is you're supposed to remove the little grate that already covers the drain in the tub. Then insert the Hair Stopper, which says it should fit most household drains, into the drainage hole. It ended up fitting so I figured all things were a go. Did it work you ask? Well, let's just say that it did stop. . . the WATER from going down the drain! I felt like I started out taking a shower and ended up wading in bath water. I mean what gives?! I tried to tweak it a little but it still acted like a plug and not a catch-all. I planned on returning it later that week, but of course, my crazy dog, Grover, thought it would make a great chew toy. Needless to say, it's back to the drawing board on this one.
