I used to think that all boys had short hair and all girls had long hair, since that is typical.

When my sister was really little (even though she is only two years younger than me), she had short hair, which looked very boyish, so I was surprised when my dad told me that she was a girl.

When my sister was little (though she is only two years younger than me), her hair looked boyish, so I thought at first that she was a boy. I was in for a big surprise when my dad told me that she was a girl.

When I was a child I would move a lot while I was sleeping. Because of this my hair was always horribly tangled in the mornings. When my mom would be brushing the knots out she would say "Ashley, rats have been sleeping in your hair at night! Your hair is just a rat's nest." I thought she was serious and had trouble sleeping for months thinking that rats would get in my hair as soon as I fell asleep. And I believed this until I was 7.

I spent a lot of time on my grandparent's ranch as a little girl. My mom would brush my hair and I would ask about the way my hair grew funny in a few places. She told me they were my callicks. I thought she was saying "cow licks." I thought mothers took their babies out to the pasture, held them up Lion King style, and let the cow lick it's head, which would impact the way the babies hair grew in. I believed this until I was 6 and asked my mom if we could take my baby sister to see the cows...

When I was younger i used to rip my split ends apart. To get me to stop my dad told me that if I ripped up to the hair folical it would cause an infection and the infection would grow to my brain and kill me. I believed it until I was 15 and I saw someone doing it so I told them that and they laughed at me.

Until I was at least 14, I thought that men who were going bald but still had hair around the outside of their head shaved the middle part because they liked how it looked.

I used to believe that young boys grow hair in their mouth when they get older and their voices start to lower.

Because in the Dutch language we call that "to get a beard in your throat". I checked it with my cousin but I couldn't see any hair growing in the back of his mouth...

When I was little i shaved my legs (I was a hairy child). I used Nair, the cream that makes the hair fall off, my mom told me never to use it on my arms. I was fully convinced if i did, i would get sick and die. I finally got over it at 14
