if you run out of conditioner a couple of drops of olive oil will work in a pinch.

On our first trip to the BVI, I was very accommodating and bought a 12V hairdryer for the wife. I think it was like 500 watts or something with low amperage so it wouldn't trip a breaker, but then again, not lots of heat. My wife never used it.
Second time down, she had one of those Keratin treatments before we left for our charter and was happy with the results.

Note for your girlfriend
Curling your hair on a charter is a waste of time that could be spent enjoying the views. However my one hair care tip for sailing/swiming in ocean waters. Bring good conditioner. If you run a small drop of conditioner through your dry hair every day it will help prevent your hair from drying out and getting salt and sun damaged.
For the rest bring a nice hat or ponytail and just relax and realize that men are actually really attracted to beachy looking hair and that will naturally occur. Seriously go look at any style magazine people use lots of products trying to get beachy looking windswept hair. Sailing is great as you do not need any expensive products to acheive this look just go swimming every day and sail and enjoy yourself and your hair will look beachy and windswept just like stylists try so hard for.

I tried making a hair dryer out of an oxy acetelyne gas ax rig since the butane dryer was out of fuel....
My wife still laughs at me about it...and they tell me the hair will grow back in my next life...

Zanshin is right there is a butane curling iron.. she will be out of luck for a hair dryer though without a genset. Those hats will come in handy 24/7. It is what I wear most of the time. I find good hair products go a long way in trying to get some style out of mine when sailing. Good leave in conditioner, and good style type gel for they type of hair one has. I don't cheap out here. The butane curling iron I will break out if I need to go out somewhere nice, otherwise the crew has to put up with the way I look.
As far as enjoying herself, the secret is to make sure everyone has fun. Don't push the boat, don't push the crew, and don't YELL or raise your voice. Don't make her cook every meal. It is her vacation too. Sail, swim, lunch, sail, swim, dinner. Don't sail over 4 hours each day. BVI's are perfect for that. Great places to hang. Get to the anchorage early. You get prime mooring balls or anchorage. Have a system to anchor the boat before you get there. Practice the commands in the home before you go. It will save the marriage as well as the vacation.
PS. I have been know to take a blow dryer ashore and do my hair in a ladies room. Most don't have a outlet but sometimes I score. I just pack it in my large go ashore bag.
