I used to think that there was one hair on your body—I wasn't sure where—that was connected to your entire inside, and if you pulled it hard enough you'd pull your insides out.
I have no idea why I thought this, but I still think about it sometimes.
When I was little, I thought if guys grew their hair to their shoulders, they were automatically girls. And if girls kept their leg hair too long they were automatically boys.
My Mom used to get me to rinse the shampoo out of my hair by singing "Wash that bear out of my hair," an adaptation on the song by South Pacific.

When I was younger I cut my Barbie doll's hair and wondered why it never grew back.
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.

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
I used to believe eating the crusts from sandwiches would make my hair curly.
