When i was little I belived that shampo made your hair grow so when I was little and me and my sister were taking a bath together she was rubbing shampoo on her arm and I said to her 'Why do you wanna make your arm hair grow?!'

When I was youngre, my brother said if you wore socks all the time, it would make your hair grow faster cause the hair that should grow on your feet would push out onto your head.
So I ended up making sure I wore socks all the time, because I didn't want foot hair!

once my mom and a friend of hers were suntanning with their arms up behind their heads and I made a connection between their not-too-recently shaved armpits and the radio next to them.I thought that women had speakers there since I saw a resemblance.I still wonder...

When I was about three or four I noticed my dad's hair looked like Mickey Mouse's to me. (The fact is that he had and still has a receding hairline.) Anyway, I sat on his lap and started petting the balding head. Very innocently I asked him "Daddy, why do you shave the front of your hair off?" And my mom who was in the room almost fell over laughing. My dad wasn't too pleased.

I am now 13 and they still mention it from time to time.

I was a very strange child!

When I was young all the barbers (male hairdressers) would only cut adults hair on Saturdays. I therefore worked out that on Saturdays all the dads went to get there pubic hair cut.

My mum used to tell me the reason I had so many knots in my hair was that fairies used to tie bits of it together and play swings with it while I was asleep! I still laugh when I think of it now.

i was told by a friend at primary school that eating the crusts on bread would make your hair curly. Because i had really curly hair i tought this to be true, so i stopped eating crusts, obviously this didn't work.

I used to believe that if you chewed on your hair you would grow worms in your tummy... of course I only believed this because my mother insisted that it was true. Until I was in college did I realize that it was just something that she made up!

I had long hair when I was in kindergarden, and of course it is very painful with the knots in the hair. My parents would mention 'rats in my hair' etc.

So I ended up making a mouse trap in hopes to keep the rats from attacking my hair. The trap had copied the box-and-bait under it trap you see on Looney Tunes.

My parents still won't let me live it down.

When i was little my hair always got knotty. My cousin told me that it was like that because the boogie man's daughters were playing in it when i went to sleep.i was terrified! I later got back at her by telling her that the boogie man's daughters would play in her near perfect hair instead of my frizzy,curly hair.

I used to think "brunette" meant a woman with BLACK hair. Only when I was about 30 years old did I realize it meant brown hair.

Once when I was about 3, I went to my mother because something on my scalp hurt. She looked around and didn't find anything. She said "You probably just have a sore there" We live in the USA, in the northeast, so with the accent it sounded like "saw" I invisioned a tiny little wood saw with a red handle sticking halfway out of my scalp with hair like a forest all around it. I searched for that silly thing for years afterward, even after it didn't hurt anymore.

My girlfriend used to believe that shaving cream would actually let your hair fall out. (She didn't realize her mistake until I told her - she was 25 at the time...)

I think I was about six. I was sitting in the car with my mom, and a man with long hair in a ponytail walked past us. I pointed at him and said, "Look, mom, it's a cross between a man and a woman!"

I think her response was, "......Uh....."

When I was about 4 I saw a little boy in pre-school that had orange, spiky hair and everyone was calling him "Torch." I automaticly thought his head was on fire! So I took my cup of juice (we were eating lunch) and threw it on his head!

I remember being in the 3rd grade, and my older brother was in the 7th grade. He was older then me, so *of course* he knew everything. While at school oneday, I saw a girl in my class and her hair was long, eventho it was extremely short the day before! I just couldnt figure out how she got her hair long so fast. I asked my brother about it, and he told me that their mom stretched their hair. I believed that for a long time too!

I eventually learned about weave, lol. :]

I was bald until I was almost 3 years old. My older brother was always worried about my baldness and often asked my mother about it. My mother always assured him that I would get hair someday soon.

We had a small fire in our house when I was still young, and still bald. After the fire was put out by firefighters, the fireman took off his helmet to wipe the sweat from his brow. My brother immediately started crying. My mother tried to assure him that the fire was out and everything was okay. "No Mom, look! That man doesn't have hair and he's old!. Kim's never going to get hair, is she?"

When I was only a few years old I saw a bald man and asked my mother where his hair was as I never recalled seeing a bald person before this, and she told me he had lost his hair, so for several years after that I believed that anyone who had "lost their hair" had a wig of their hair hiding behind their stereo or under a chair in their house and they just couldn't find it, and I always wanted to go home with them to help look for it.

I live by the sea, and we all know that salty water makes your hair curlier. I have natural curly hair, and I always thought that the poor people far away from the sea have flat hair and if you live by the sea and have flat hair is because you don't like the beach. HUH????
