My hair is naturally very thick but recently I went through an operation and lost a LOT of blood so my hair has been falling out a lot... I've been taking these pills to restore it, but anyhow, I have to go to a wedding in 2 days but I hate my hair its gone frizzy and weird and my mom says NO to using a flat/ceramic iron because its already in bad condition but I really want to straighten it, that's the only way my hair looks "tamed" otherwise it looks like a mess and I want to look good.. my mom agreed that we'd figure something out but I want my hair to be straight and I want to keep it open...any suggestions on how to do so without a flat iron? And I don't want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on rollers (they're expensive where I am) either...Any products to take out the frizz? Or just some other suggestions that could make my hair a little less wavy. Cause I have pretty long hair but now it tends to go curly and I hate it! :(
Thanks for your help I would really appreciate some responses :|

Sweetheart first I would applaud your braveness of experiencing and going through struggles hardly any girls can cope today. Secondly just because straight hair is hard to get and mentain doesn't neccessarily make it look 'Good'. I being a guy replied this post, just to tell you that my ultimate dream girls Julia Roberts has curly hair.
Your health comes FIRST, sacrifice a little fashion for it's not your first priority.
Having said that, I could obviously suggest fruit based conditioners, but instead I advise you go for plain medical conditioners available from any good supermarket which does not contain nasty chemicals. Go for the milky ones.
What a conditioner does is make your hair flatter and lighter and visually more attractive to look at.
Secondly always oil your hair with olive oil 2 hours before you take a bath. Massage it within the roots and till the ends of your hair. It makes your hair less dry and more healthy, moist and easier to tame.
Thirdly use very less shampoo. Shampoo dries your hair. WHAT YOU BASICALLY WANT is treatment which doesn't not weaken your hair but makes it healthier and flatter as well.
Last, when your hair is still wet after oiling, then shampooing, then conditioning, wrap your hair in such a way in a towel that it is tightly held together between the towel. Let it dry completely. DONT brush until its dry. It takes time but this is THE BEST way to have straight hair without straightners or treatments.
Wrap the main middle body to lower body with a dry towel, make sure the hair is pressed straight, let it dry completely. Simply. Blow dry when you're done and comb with a thick brush. Thin combs make your hair curly. I suggest a wooden teeth hair brush.
Hope this answers your question. Last thing, the reason why people love celebs and cheerleaders and models is because these people LOVE LOVE LOVE themselves. When you love yourself people will love you. No one makes fun of Angelina Jolie's funny pout because she is obsessed with it. No one hates Tyra's huge forehead because she flaunts it. Love your curly hair, because your beauty is in the inside. And I can tell you are an extremely beautiful young lady. Take care.1
