Does anyone use a hair stopper?

I prefer to do my Wash Day (condition/detangle/shampoo) antics in the shower, but I do not like the shed hairs going down the drain and clogging it up. Thus!....I need a hair stopper.

Does anyone use one? Does it work? I've heard of a lot of hair stoppers not staying down and letting hair down the drain, not fitting properly in the drain, etc. so that's why I want opinions from someone who might use them.

TIA
I use one! I really like it, it makes cleaning up shed/broken hair really easy. I got it for cheap at the grocery store (random find?). It's a little more "raised" than I thought it would be, but since I don't stand near the drain it doesnt bother me much.

If you're undecided what you could do is by a sticker type one that you can find at the 100yen shop (i'm pretty sure they sell the normal kind as well). I would buy the sticker and change it every month. Doesn't stop 100% of the hair but does the job.
Hope that helps

I had this same problem, so I got one at Walmart. It doesn't stop 100% of the hair for me either but it works to stop most. Can't shampoo and condish without it.
I use one. My drain does get clogged but that has more to do with products that I use on my hair. Some hairs do escape but not many. It is definitely worth investing in, especially if you have to share a bathroom with other people.

Thanks for the responses everyone!

I'll have to take a look at the 100 yen store to see if they have some. I've been meaning to go but I'm lazy, and I forget lol. If I don't see a good one there I'll go online.

Has anyone tried the one from Luv Naturals? I've seen that one on amazon and was wondering if it was any good.

Stylers: CD Loc Butter for twists, CJAF, CJCQ (haven't figured out how to work this though...)
I found one just browsing the bathroom cleaning aisle at walmart, I love it because it catches all the hair. It has this lil pointy edges so all over the top and sides so that the hair gets tangled in it and caught. I never wash my hair without it!

kimmaytube sells one on luvnaturals.com

if u have roomies, a stopper is very nice to have. no one wants to see their roommate's hair all over the shower.. eww.
I use one and I got it at the pet supply shop.. I like that one better. I had the one with the spikes on it to catch hair, and first off I get disgusted by hair that is not attached to your head (like Seinfeld..lol), and when it was caught in those needles I almost lost my cookies.

The one I have now from the pet supply shop doesn't have the spikes. It actually drains better than the one with spikes and it catches all the hair too.
