From FlexiSnake, the inventors of the original hook & loop hair-clog tool , comes a brand new do-it-yourself drain-cleaning tool, The Drain Weasel Plus. The Drain Weasel Plus has a reusable handle and disposable wands with Velcro brand hooks, so you can quickly and safely clear that hair-clogged bathroom drain. No drain disassembly is required, just slide the flexible wand down the drain, give the handle a couple cranks and up comes the hair and down goes the water. With the convenient quick-connect handle, just remove the inexpensive, disposable wand and toss the whole mess - clean hands, clean drain.

At first it was a little tricky threading the wand past the drain plug, and one side didn't want to go at all (for what would become obvious reasons). I got to a point about halfway down the wand when it didn't want to go any further. So rather than force it, I pulled the wand back up...and with it a wad of gunk. I know, it's gross and disgusting, but I cleaned it off with my fingers anyway and went delving again. And again. Each time, I'd bring up more gunk. After the third or fourth go, the wand actually went all the way down and a test run showed the sink was already draining better than before. Eventually, I tried going down the right side of the stopper and ended up pulling out the biggest lump of grossness of all.
But after that, and a few more probes with the wand to be sure I'd gotten everything, the drain was running totally free again. Yes, I was also able to clean off the wand end so I'm expecting to get more than a few uses out of it. They say to 'sanitize' it for reuse, but I'll probably just soak the end in some antibacterial soap solution or something like that; I'd imagine a run in the dishwasher might make the plastic brittle and I don't want that. We are talking about a drain tool after all -- it's designed to get dirty.
Anyway, this is my top advice: Go slow. Be delicate. Use no more than a little pressure. If the wand hits an obstruction, don't force it. Just try to twist the handle a little and pull the wand out. You might not get everything (in fact you probably won't) but every little bit you pull out of the drain is that much less of a plug in the way. Don't be afraid to clean the gunk off and go again. Yes, I do wish the wand was a little sturdier, but at least it got the job done and I'm happy to have a fully functional sink drain again. At this point, my only regret is all the money I wasted dumping Drain-o down that drain.
It is small enough to fit in sink drains without taking out the center stopper. There is a round thing that helps lock the attachment in place that you use to spin the top in the drain, this is effective in gathering more of the gross hair in the sink. Pulling is up is relatively easy but if it is a lot of hair, it takes some effort to ease out of the drain.
Now the con was taking the removable tip off and throwing it away. Its really gross so you don't want to touch it long, but it did take some effort to get it off. Additionally, it won't fit in your bathroom trash so you need to think ahead to you're not carrying this gross thing through the house dripping everywhere.
