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 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 :)

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.

When I was younger I believed a man's moustache was grown from the hair in his nose and not from the skin on his upper lip.

When I was young I used to believe that your head was full of hair all twisted up and when your hair grew it was because it was coming out of your head and people got bald because eventually the hair ran out!

When I was little I was taking a bath one day and noticed that i was getting hairer. I freaked out and called my mom into the bathroom, asking her if I was turning into a dog!! She just stared at me like i had 5 heads and said no. Luckily, I never became mans best friend.

I used to think that when people dyed their hair it would continue to grow that color forever. I think I thought this until I was 11 or 12, when I read that someone had dyed their hair red semi-permanently, and I spent days figuring out how that was possible.

When I was a kid, I believed that when you got old your hair not only turned white or gray but also automatically became short and puffy, because that was how the older women in my family wore theirs.

When we were small my brother wouldn't use the shampoo in our shower because it was for "Permed Hair" and he didn't want curly hair. :)
