Best drain cleaners for the short hairs?

My bathroom sink is beginning to clog up with shaving stuble and 1/4" hairs from using clippers on my head. This isn't your typical tangled "felt rug" of a clog.

What's the right/best drain cleaner to use? Rather than dissolving the grease binder, i think i'll need to dissolve the hair itself ...

It is honestly best to use a snake.

Best thing to do is pour bleach down your drain like once or twice a month. Use a couple cups worth and let it stand for a while then run water. This will eat up those hairs and loosen potential clogs.

Skip the middleman and just shampoo your crotch with Drano.

I used to use all sorts of drain cleaners in my shower when the drain slowed, but I discovered that plunging the drain worked better than any of them. Might give it a try...

Plunger or snake. Chemicals have a nasty way of eating pipes.
