Amano shrimp are really good at removing hair algae. You could also manually remove as much of the hair algae as you can and then dose small amounts of hydrogen peroxide with a syringe to pinpoint the dosage. Draining the tank about the level of the hair algae helps. This method could cause a lot of damage and I found it's better to remove that single plant with the hair algae and treat it out of the tank.
