Straightening Curls for wedding.. CG product help?

Hi!

I'm going to my best friends wedding and I'd like to straighten my hair. I don't really want to use any products that have silicones in them.

I just bought Organix Moroccan Smooth Perfection Blow Out Cream
Ingredients: Deionized Water, PVP, Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Ceteareth-20, Isopropyl Myristate, Polyacrylamide (and) C13-14 Isoparaffin (and) Laureth-7, Diazolidinyl Urea (and)Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Fragrance, FD&C Yellow #5, FD&C Red #17.

I don't think I see any silicones... but I'd love another set of CG eyes or any recommendations on a cone-free product.

Thanks so much!!!

Still struggling to figure out what works

COs- GTTT, VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea, VO5 Kiwi Lime, Suave Coconut

KY, LOOB, Loreal Melting Gel, FOTE, Homemade FSG, LA Looks, BRHG, HESMU,

Want to try: KCCC, KBB Milk, KBB Cream, Botticelli Babe's FSG/Brulee, LVPNG
Trying not to be a PJ

Growing out my curls for the winter, can't wait for the big chop ( I used to save up for a Ouidad cut, now I'm thinking of trying Deva?)

    The blow out cream is CG. I never use mine and ended up pouring it down the drain (kept the bottle). Now I wish I hadn't thrown it out. The Curls line has an elixir that is suppose to help with heat protection. There's also the something Heritage line at Target that has a heat protectant spray. Sally's has a heat protectant spray (GVP), but I didn't like it.
    CG as of Feb. 2012
    combination hair.
    2c on top - low elasticity
    3a&b scattered underneath - normal elasticity.
    fine texture. thin density. A lot of it.
    porosity: normal to high.
    loves protein and moisture.
    BSACV as needed.

    products may vary. i'm a PJ.
    loving Curl Junkie, Curly Kinks, and AS I Am.

    Have you ever heard of using a conditioner for a smoothing cream? I use John Frietas blonde hair conditioner everyday. I don't use it for highlights but it helps to smooth it out. I don't rinse it out just put it on and leave it.
