But dealing with grossness is one of my roles in the household
Preach, brother, Preach!
My wife has luxurious long curly hair...and I've had long hair here and there over the decades....so regular drain maintenance is a scheduled thing at the Chrome household.. As has been stated earlier, try to avoid chemicals at all costs. A bent clotheshanger works fine in a pinch or get an actual snake from Lowes. Usually takes less than 15 mins once you get the process and twists down.
