    In the car all day with Mon and Dad

    A: Have you been riding roller coasters?
    B: Nope, In the car all day with Mon and Dad!

    What does B mean by " In the car all day with Mon and Dad"?

    B means he/she has not been riding roller coasters. He/she was in the car with his/her parents.

    She is metaphorically frazzled by spending all day in a car with her parents? That's enough to make most people go crazy so perhaps her hair is supposed to reflect how crazy she feels after such a terrible day!

    IMO, she implies that spending all day with her parents inside a car is as hair-raising an experience as riding a roller-coaster (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/hair-raising).
