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
I used to believe eating the crusts from sandwiches would make my hair curly.
When I was a child my grandmother told me that if I chewed my hair I would get worms in my belly.
I stopped chewing my hair.
i used to believe that if you pulled out a hair and put it in the clothes dryer, a clone would come out
"Bowl cuts" were actually called Bull Cuts. My aunt wanted my little brother to have a bowl cut in her wedding, only I didn't realize it was the word "bowl" until I saw Dumb & Dumberer.
I used to believe moustaches were just really long nose hair
In order to get me to stop whistling, my grandmother told me that if I whistle, I will grow a mustache. I totally believed her up until the 5th grade.
My mom told me that if I didn't brush the tangles from my hair, it would become a rat's nest. I thought she meant that I would have rats in my hair and they would have their babies there.
I believed that men didn't go bald because ther hair fell out or stopped growing but that the hair would grow through their head and come out of their ears and nose! Old bald men always had hairy ears and noses.
i used to believe that there were thousands of tiny elves in your head that hold on to each of your hair strands, and when you pull a hair out its tiny white elf gloves came with it. hence the little white spot on the bottom of a hair.
I thought that people wore hat in the winter because you lose the most heat through your head. (That's what they used to tell us.) Which makes perfect sense, because there are all those holes in your head where the hair comes out.
When I was a kid I took two showers becaue I thought my hair was a plant and needed the water to grow
when I was a little girl, I used to put my ponytail in my mouth and suck the hair (disgusting, I know). My older brothers wanted to make me stop, so they made up a story about a girl who had a horrible stomach ache so she had to go through a surgery. When the doctor opened up her stomach there was a ball of hair inside. They scared the hell out of me :)
when i was little i thought that hair was forgotten thoughts and people with lots of hair were forgetful and my uncle who is bald never forgot anything i thought this til i was 12
I always thought that rubbing shampoo on someplace other than my hair would allow me to grow hair in that particular region
When I was younger (19 now) I used to believe eyebrows never grew back. So when I saw movies where people somehow got their eyebrows removed I was scared for them so I pretended it was fake and they didn't actually get removed.
When I was little, my mother told me that if I chewed on my hair, it would turn green because of a special shampoo she bought. I believed her for many years.
I used to think that rat tailsóthose weird little long pieces of braided hair stemming out of an otherwise short haircutówere a disease! They just looked so unnatural to me, and when I was in second grade and I saw this boy on the playground who had one, I ran away from him for fear of "catching" his rat tail. I would constantly stare at the backs of people's necks, worrying that they were beginning to catch it and soon a big ugly rat tail would sprout out, and I wanted to ask my parents if a cure for rat tails had been found yet but I was too scared!
It wasn't until around sixth grade that it finally dawned on me that it was just a very bizarre style choice.
When I was about 7 or 8 we had neighbors and all the kids had red hair. They also ate Ketchup on EVERYthing, and I thought that was why they had red hair.
