I used to believe that pubic hair was said public hair and that whoever had it would show it off to the public. One time when I was about 6, we were at the beach with my cousins and I told my older cousin, "How come your not showing your public hair?" My cousin gave me a strange look and walked away laughing. I wasn't corrected of my embarrasing mistake until I was 11!
I used to think that shaving cream made your hair fall out. I was terrified of touching it, afraid that if I did, some of it might accidentally get on my head and make me go bald.
I have believed for a long time that there's a conditioner that can make your hair so shiny, that you can see your reflection in it! I don't think it really exists - do you?
i used to belive that if i ate the crusts off my bred that my hair would grow longer everyday until it touched the floorthen it would stop.
I used to think that pubic hair was fur. When I was about three or so I asked my mom "why do you and my dad have fur down there?" I didn't understand it until much later.
I believed that people who were bald were dumb, because I thought hair was connected to your brain.. so when I saw old men, I thought they were so dumb because they did not have any hair, meaning nothing connecting to their brain.
I couldn't figure out what was so funny when I told people that, because I thought I was so clever!
When I was young I questioned my mom about the part in my hair that wouldn't cooperate with the rest of my hair. She told me it was called a cowlick, (which isn't wrong!) and that when I was born a cow came and licked my head!
When i was younger about 9 or 10 this guy told me that if i shaved my pubic hair i would bleed forever so when i started to grow pubic hair i never shaved it even though i didnt like it there i didnt find out different till i saw my older sister shaving hers and i asked her why she isnt bleeding and she explained the whole think to me
I used to believe that men with ponytails were both male and famale.
I used to believe hair had flavors from the ages or 8-9. Black is coffee, Brown is chocolate, Blond is Banana, and Red is cherry or raspberry. When I was 9 (I'm 11) when I found out the truth. "Mom, can I taste your chocolate hair?" ended it.
My little sister used to believe that a mullet was the "hair transplant" operation that balding men get.
I used to believe that hair sprouted from large holes in peoples' scalps. One time I got so mad at somebody that I threatened to pull all his hair out, so that nothing would be left but the holes where his hair used to be.
I used to have a bad habit of sucking on my hair and I guess my mom got fed up with it and told me that my great aunt had done that and they had to surgically remove the hair ball from her stomach.
When we were younger, my brother and I would fight and my mom would always tell us that we made her so mad she wanted to pull her hair out. Until I got older, I would see the hair in the shower drain and think that my mom actually WAS pulling her hair out because we made her so mad!
You know blondes when they swim in clorine for a long time their hair turns green!? Well, I believed that brunettes hair turned purple with too much clorine! weird!
File this one under 'misinformed thanks to parents'... When I hit puberty and started getting hair under my arms and on my legs I thought I was just different than the other girls in my gym class (who, of course, had nice parents and had already started shaving). Its SO embarassing now that, in retrospect, I recall being asked if I was french or gay. SAD SAD SAD... Parents, take a lesson from my humiliation... tell your kids about shaving when they reach junior high.
I also remembered thinking I didn't want to shave for a while since my grandma one time had told me how older ladies these days don't have to shave since they didn't as young ladies, their hair didn't grow in as thick as young ladies today. Oh well. I still blame my parents :-)
When I was little I thought the reason my grandfather was bald was because he rode on a motorcycle really fast with no helmet and all of his hair fell out in one swooooop!
I use to think that when a man gained a lot of muscle his body hair would fall out. It made logical sense to me at the time, because most actors and models on TV wax their bodies. I proudly told my mother what I had discoveried. After laughing, she told me the truth.
When I was little, I couldn't wait to grow up so I could grow a mustache. I am female.
I used to watch a lot of TV comercials about shampoo and I noticed that only girls washed their hair in the comercials. I thought boys and men did not wash their hair because there was no shampoo for them and that girls where the only ones allowed to use shampoos.
