The mum-of-one used high-strength £5 powder bleach, bought on the high street, to lighten her dark brown locks.
She wanted to give herself the latest trendy style – where hair is dyed into pastel shades, resembling the mane of a unicon.
But, instead of looking like the mythical creature, she was left seriously ill, with severe full thickness chemical burns and needed a skin graft from her right thigh to repair the damage to her head.
In total, since the incident, she has had six operations and spent three weeks in St Andrews hospital, Chelmsford, Essex.
Kirsty, from St Albans, Hertfordshire, claimed she applied the dye according to the instructions.,
Then, just before she was about to wash it out after 15 minutes, she started to experience a burning sensation.
Despite rushing to rinse the bleach out, she felt severe pain on her head and the next day, her face began to swell.
Weeks later, medical staff shaved her head to allow her to undergo emergency surgery to try to heal the chemical burns on her scalp.,
Now she has lost over half the hair on her head and has been told it will never grow back as there are no follicles in the skin that has been grafted over the wound.
Kirsty, who is a single mum to Lexi, two, explained: “I wanted unicorn hair, where you lighten it and then dye over the top with lots of different pastel colours.
“It was before it became really popular and I just wanted something a bit different.
“I never thought it would end up completely destroying my hair and changing my life like this. It’s caused a lot of pain and I’ve completely lost my self-confidence.”
