When I was younger my mom used to tell me that if I went to bed with wet hair after a shower my brain would rust.

When my mother would find a tangle while brushing my hair, she would exclaim, "You have a rat in your hair!" She would then grab a nearby tissue, act as if she was wrapping the "rat" up inside it, then stuff it between the cushions of the couch. When I asked her if the rats in the couch would ever escape, she assured me that our cat would tend to them later.

When I was younger, I heard my mother and my aunt talking about pubic hair and the best way to trim it. I over heard my aunt say how much hair had grown back in the last couple weeks. It was my belief for years after wards that if you trimmed your pubic hair, God would punish you by making it into the size of a bush. That way you couldn't get into your pants and everyone knew what you did.

When I was a little kid, my dad's beard had hairs that were several shades of brown, as well as some dark blond. I couldn't figure out what color it really was and somehow decided that it was green. Whenever we drew pictures of our families in kindergarten, I would always draw my dad with a green beard.

When I was little, I believed the tangles in your hair were called Peeps and when my mom brushed my hair she would tell me she could see all the Peeps picking up there furniture and moving out of my hair. Now, looking back on it, I'm kinda afraid that was her way of telling me I had lice.

Up until I was about 15 I believed that my Grandfather's hair was bleached white by acid rain. I still can't go out in the rain without feeling paranoid (I have dark brown hair, and I'd like to keep it that way).

When i was little, my grandpa told me that his hair fell out because when he was a little boy he put curlers in his hair and made them too tight.

My mom used to tell me when I was in preschool that if you chewed your hair that it would turn into worms. So I stopped doing it, and every time I would see other kids doing it, I would laugh to myself and think...wow that's gonna be gross.

I used to take my bath with my older sister. Our favourite game was to pretend to shave ourselves with soap and our father's razor blade, the security cap on of course. Once, I tried the blades on my arm without the cap, but my sister got so scared that I could do it again and injure myself, that she told me thtat if I shaved my hair once again, it would grow very long and I would turn into a beast. And my mother confirmed. Scary, all the more that I started to feel bumps on my forehead, and thought there was horns growing...

When my sister and I were small children, our mother had let our hair grow very long. Every morning, we would go through the horrific pain of mother brushing the sleep induced tangles out of our long locks. Mother told us that at night while we sleep, rats make nests in our hair causing the thick, matted tangles. For many many nights, I would stay awake late in hopes of catching the little bastards who caused me so much pain in the morning.

My mom took me to the hairdresser when I was little to get a trim. My mom pulled me in a corner after my trim and asked if I wanted to grow bangs. I looked at her and said "But mom, wouldn't it take to long?" and she looked at me in a very confused way. She didn't know that I thought the term "grow" bangs meant that you had to sprinkle your head with "bang" seeds and water them until they "grow".

At ages 4-6 since all the kings in my pack of playing cards had beards, I logically assumed that all men with beards were kings.
