I used to belive that hair grows from down, not from root.
When I was very young, I asked my dad why he didn't have any hair on the back (crown) of his head. He said that when he was a kid somebody dropped a rock on his head and all his hair fell out. I believed it for years.
when i was little one my best friends told me the only way you can get calick is if a cow comes in your room at night when you're sleeping and licks your head.. i honestly believed her for the longest time. what was i thinking?
When my mother was little, she was short-sighted but hadn't been diagnosed as such yet, so she didn't yet have glasses ... this impediment meant that, since nearly all women had perms when she was a child, she believed that all grown-up women had hair which grew in loops and back into their heads and dreaded the day when her own would do the same because it would be harder to brush ...
My brother did not understand baldness as a child. One day at the mall, we were waiting behind a man who was bald in the center of his head, but still had hair around the sides and back.
Ever the polite boy, he asked my mother, "Why does that man have a hole in his head?"
I used to believe that my grandfather was bald because a crow has licked his hair!
he used to say that alot! lol
when i was about 6, i believed that if you didnt want bangs anymore, you had to cut them off very close to your head. i tried this theory out one day, which resulted in a trip to the hairdressers and a very strange hairstyle for a while after.
I was told and actually believed that if my fringe hair covers my eyebrows, my eyebrows hair will drop and i would become eyebrowless.
When I was really small I had a horror of beards. I thought if a man failed to shave for a day or two, he'd be hopelessly caught in a tangle of hair, and like Bluto in the Popeye cartoons, would become an evil bully. I thought the two worst things about being male were 1) getting drafted, and 2) shaving.
I used to believe that all my friends who had bangs, were just born with them. Until about first grade when i said to my best friend, "i wish i had bangs like you" and she laughed and told me how the lady at the hair cut place cut them.
I used to think a mustache was just extended nose hair.
I used to watch bodybuilding competitions on TV. I used to believe that the bodybuilders were hairless because their huge muscles had grown up and over their body hair.
Iused to belive that my dad was bald becouse he burnt it of evry day. i was stupid.
My 4 year old son used to check every morning if I had properly shaved my beard. So, one day I asked him why he was so concerned ... and he told me that "you'll age and ... die if you let your beard grow"
When I was around 5 or 6, I really hated washing my hair. I always found ways to put it off. My mom would always say, "If you don't wash your hair now, when you go to sleep, I'm going to cut it all off!" and I would cry because I loved my long hair. I also knew she wouldn't do that, so she tried a different method saying, "If you always wash your hair, it will grow longer much more quickly." That got me.
When I was 14 I got one of those round brushes stuck in my hair. Well, after a hour trying to get it out, I got the bright idea that it would be easier to take out if I got it wet. Boy, after I took a shower with it did I realize how wrong I was. It made it so bad that I had to cut it out and so only half of my head now had hair. Needless to say the kids at school weren't very nice about my new do.
when i was little i used to chew my hair. i dont know why. one time my dad got sick of it i guess and told me somthing. he said with a super serous look on his face "if you keep doing that a ball will get bigger and bigger in your stomach and it will grow mold and they will have to cut open your body and take your stomach out.....i think ill take you to the docter so they can do that before it gets any worce" i was scared to death about that i never chewed my hair again, actully im scared if any hair gets near my mouth, i dont know if its true or not, but im still scared.......
I used to suck my hair when i was little so my Nan told me a girl died once cause the hair got tangled in her belly and there was no room left in there so she died. I still stop myself today thinking about that story!
I used to believe that when men grew beard hair it was really painful (how it pierced through the skin), but in keeping and maintaining a beard it demonstrated the toughness of the man and indeed their superiority over women. How right I was.
i was afraid to use my dad's hairbrush because i thought it would give me gray hairs.
