Is there a way to keep straight hair from tangling?

I have very fine, straight hair, which is fairly long. I would like to wear it down, but it quickly becomes tangled, even to the point of having painful knots. I wore it even a little loosely tonight (gathered at the back of my neck with a clip, but otherwise loose), and got home to find I had bad knots right under my hair near my neck.
I don't normally use conditioner, but wash my hair with only a small amount of shampoo - should I use it? a creme rinse? Wash my hair less? (I was trying to wash it only every other day, but I keep forgetting as my brain turns off in the shower).
Home or cheap solutions would be good - I live in a small working-class city, and I'm a student, so I can't afford salon-type treatments even if they were around (which they aren't).
