05: Eliminate hair dryer and steam iron
By choosing clothes made of materials that do not require ironing, there is almost no daily trouble. Basically, shirts should be linen or linen blended cotton. If you wash it, stretch it out, and dry it, the natural wrinkles are the characteristics of the material and its charm point as well.
Recently, there are many clothes that are made of a mixture of cotton and synthetic fabric and are labelled as not requiring ironing, so I don't think that not using steam iron is such a special thing.
Eliminating hair dryers can be a little tricky (at least in Japan, maybe). Basically most people use a hair dryer straight after you take a bath or shower. But I recommend using microfiber headbands instead of hair dryers because this is one of the most energy consuming products in your household. After showering, wrap the hair band with high water absorption ability around your head, and after 10 to 30 minutes (I always start doing something with the hair band on and forgetting to take it off), put the brush in and let it dry naturally. I have long hair for a man, and even when I was using a hairdryer, I didn't use it until it was completely dry, so the result isn't much different.
I say tricky because I think this may have a lot to do with the quality of your hair. Luckily I have soft and naturally curled hair. Because of that, I don't need to set my hair properly (I don't like hair styling products, so I don't do anything). But for any type of hair, I think there is a way you look cool even not using hair dryer. Btw, when I was a kid, I deadly hated this frizzy hair, which is another story though.
