Shower drain that keeps getting plugged.

Great site - nice to have this resource to get plumbing questions answered!

We have a shower in the basement and the drain seems to get plugged over time to the point that snaking it out is the only thing that works to unclog it.

Is this normal - should we just be prepared to do this every year? The drain seems to be getting clogged by hair, probably from my head where I seem to be losing it!

Is there something we can do (a chemical, bleach, a device, an action etc.) to keep the drain clear or at least keep it cler for a longer period of time between "sankings"?

Thanks!
