I feel your pain. I had a messy hair algae problem in my 85 gal marine tank. It took 6 months to clear up. This is what I did and it worked but there's probably a better/faster way:

*Reduced light
*Fed the livestock less
*Used a toothbrush weekly to free as much of the algae as I could and netted it
*Followed the toothbrush chore with a 15% water change
*Cleaned the filters more often
*Put 2 pin cushion urchins in - they were (are still are) amazing

It was a lot of work but I didn't use any chemical additives

my 2 cents
put some turbo snails in and more flow in the tank and like said before more water changes and less feeding. All 4 of my tanks get feed every 3 days. hope this helps
