Having long, luscious locks is lovely; they swish gloriously in the wind, they curl pleasingly around your shoulders and they mean that any number of up-dos and styles are possible.

But, all great privileges come with a burden to bear, and for those in possession of lots of hair it’s that it gets stuck - often - down the drains of sinks, showers and baths.

In fact, sometimes it can feel you leave the shower with more hair in the drain than on your head.

This means that you might often find yourself showering in ankle-deep water, or unable to wash down soap residue, as it desperately tries to squeeze down the blocked plug.

And this is likely the case even if you have shorter hair or body hair.

So, what can be done?

Well, as luck would have it, we’ve found a handy bathroom gadget that means you’ll never need to worry about a fluffy plug again.

The TubShroom Hair Catcher traps all your hair before it clogs your sink — and then hides that hair until you're ready to empty it. Genius, right? Well, 23,000 shoppers certainly think so.

Plus, it's currently on sale this Prime Day and is now under £10.

Why we love it:

We know that collecting a tangle of hair from your drain isn’t the most glamorous of jobs, but it certainly beats calling out a plumber or having to kneel down in the shower to extract them manually yourself.

Think of the things you could do with all the time you’ll save! Boxing? Cooking? A Netflix marathon?

It also means that you can shave in the smug knowledge that your drain isn’t bearing the unwanted clippings, and you can even wash your pet in the sink or the bath as the TubShroom works for animal hair, too.

How it works:

Simply pop the TubShroom into the drain and leave it to discreetly collect hair while you get on with more important jobs.

Every few washes just lift it out and empty the trapped hairball into the rubbish.

What the reviews say:

Luckily for you, we haven’t written out the 23,000 reviews here, but we have picked out just a few pieces of customer feedback.

  • “Excellent! Works perfectly. Even though we have a shallow bathtub drain and almost the entire device sticks out, we don't mind because it is the only device that has worked and is remarkably easy to clean. I highly recommend this product!"

  • "This is a game changer in our house, with three grown men they do produce a lot of hair in the shower, I have spent a fortune on cleaning products to stop the shower blocking then I came across this little gem."

  • "You will be surprised how much hair you lose, this catches it all saving clogged drainage."

  • "I bought it and so far it has lived up to everything the manufacturers claim it to be. Excellent tool to save time and hassle of taking off your bath drain trap to take hair blocks out. This is just so easy to clean and maintain."
