Re: Shower Drain Clogged - Call a Plumber or use Drain Cleaner? Another vote on the zip strip.
What works even better, if you have one readily available, is one of these.
While the tool is something most auto mechanics have, I find it works quite nicely for removing those "dead-cat" mats of hair that build up in sink and shower drains as well.
You can get a firm grip on the clog, even better than with a zip strip.
Note that for a shower, sometimes it is easier to pull out the drain lever mechanism, and go down into the pipe via that opening.
