Even if you manage a marvelous hair washing system, it simply will not be the same after the playa. Using high end product won't help much. She'll have to accept that she may have damaged hair.
But here goes:
Keep it covered and bundled up. Even short hair can be sun damaged, wind damaged, and encrusted with playa dust. Do not expect to maintain a default world hair style.
Use a light leave in conditioner, but don't try any conditioning treatments on the playa as they'll get crusted up with dust and use far too much water while rinsing.
Do brush it daily, have a wide tooth comb for detangling.
No blow dryers on the playa, even in an RV. You're drying your hair out badly just being there, don't pile on the stress to your tresses.
Plan on a cut or trim after the event if you fear split ends. They'll happen.
Perhaps this will be liberating and she'll find other uses for her money. That happens too.
