I seriously thought that if I stuck my head out the window while the car was in motion, my hair would grow. I gave this advice to many people.
when i was about 5 i allways chewed on my hair and my mum allways told me that if u chewed on ur hair it would tangle up all ur insides and eventullay you would expload ! LOL!
I used to believe that each strand of hair was connected to a "brain noodle". The prinicpal of my elementary school (Mr. Scott) was bald. I puzzled over this for awhile and finally went up to Mr. Scott and asked how he could be a principal if he didn't have a brain.
As a child, on asking my dad why I could see his bald crown he replied that it was because he was "so tall that he was growing through his hair". I really believed that for a long time!
My mum has always had short hair. For some reason this led me to think that only little girls could have long hair.
I used to believe my Dad was bald due to sticking his head out of the aeroplane window when he was in the RAF and consequently being scalped by the propeller!
I used to believe that all body hair consisted of dead nerve-endings. Nerves growing until they pushed through your skin, I guess. I continued this belief through high school until a fellow student set me straight in AP Biology.
When I was little, my mother told me that if I didn't wash all of the shampoo out of my hair, all my hair would fall out and I would be bald. I assumed this to mean forever. I believed this for longer than I should have.
When i was around 5, my hair used to be braided into many long plaits(that i was very proud of !) that my friends at kindergarten would try to count. I always believed that by counting my plaits, my hair would fall off and up to this day i still believe that.
When my best friend Emma and I were around 6 we saw on TV a hairspray in a gold bottle and the lady said that you couldn't go a day without wearing it or your hair would look bad, I told Emma that we had a gold spray bottle in the bathroom and we should try it. We were 6 and didn't read yet so we just started spraying only to be told that it was my dad's spray deodorant. Our mom's told us that our hair would fall out (probably just to scare us) but we believed them and went to stole every single one of my big sister's hats to get ready for when we were bald. We refused to go anywhere with out a hat just in case a chunk fell out while were were out. This went on until a few weeks later when I told my grandpa that I would be bald like him soon and he set me straight.
When I was younger, I had a bad habbit of chewing on my hair. Then my dad told me that if I kept doing that, my hair would turn green. Of course, I believed him. So everytime I saw one of my friends sucking on her hair, I would freak out and yell "DONT DO THAT YOUR HAIR WILL TURN GREEEN!" I was so cute. Haha.
Bald people conduct electricity better.
One day I tested my theory...
I used to believe that bald men had hair where their skin should be and skin where their hair should be.
I had a strange picture in my head of a yeti-type thing; hair covering all of his body except on his scalp, armpits and beard.
When i was 3 or 4, my reliable freind explained to me that blonde people and ginger people were an evil race of alien invaders that couldn't quite get the "proper" hair colour right on their human disguises (me and my freind both had brown hair).
I always cower in abject terror every time my blonde "human" teacher talks to me...
when i was little my mom told me that when i was born my hair was pink & that whenever they cut it it would turn a different color. she said they had to keep cutting it until it turned brown. not only did i believe this until middle school, i told anyone who would listen.
I used to think that all men who had mustaches were evil...including my uncle. To this day, I still don't like my uncle very much...
When I was little, my dad told me that I had 'really bad cowlicks' I misheard him and thought he said 'callics' and I decided that callics was a disease; so I asked him one day if I already had my callics vaccinations.
My daughter, now 12, confessed the other day that when she was "little," she thought some people were born with bangs and others were not. She said she felt bad for her friend, Kristin, because she "couldn't have bangs." I asked her when she figured out bangs were a hair style and not a genetic thing. "Probably when Kristin showed up in first grade with bangs," she replied.
My sister and I convinced my younger brother that his cow licks were made out of tradition! He believed that my parents took him to my grandmothers farm and had a cow lick his head! He had cow licks really bad when he was younger.
I used to think that when you cut your hair short it curled. My mom had just gone from long hair to the very popular short afro-style perm - late 70s - hair do. I tried to apply this theory to ALL my barbie dolls, but it didn't work.
