when I was little, some college kids lived next door. One girl I was friends with had short hair, but came home day with really long hair. I asked if they glued on each hair individually, and she said yes. For years I thought people would sit for hours having individual hairs glued on to make their hair longer.
I used to think that toothpaste could double as hairgel too, and would go around, proud of my slick and shiny hair. This worked well until one day, my cousin, who was 4 years older than me, suddenly noticed than my hair was filled with white goo.
And the rest, my dears, is history.
Until I was about 12-13 years old I was scared to touch an electric guitar. Everyone I knew or saw on tv that was touching one had really big hair. I thought I would get electrocuted. And my hair would look like that.
When I was little, my mom used to say people with with curly hair are smart. I was born with curly hair along with my dad (which made me thought I was blessed to be born smart), but other than that everyone in my family has straight hair. I was told that that when people get smarter, their hair curls and when people get dumber, their hair goes straight or lose curls. Then it was time for me to get my first haircut, a buzzcut and I never wanted to because I was afraid I will lose my curls and lose my memory but then my hair grew back along with the curls. Now I realize that hair has nothing to do with how smart or dumb you are...wow..
When I was little I thought that adult men either grew a beard, mustache, or neither, since my Dad always had the same facial hair. I prayed I'd never grow any.
Now I have a full beard.
My sister told me that when you add water to hair, the hair turns into a water worm. She even demonstrated by plucking off a piece of my hair and turning the tap on in the sink. Lo and behold the hair started squirming! I didn't bathe for two weeks because I didnt want my hair to turn into hundreds of water worms!
I have dark brown hair, but I used to think that it was only brown when I was looking at it..Otherwise, it was blond or pink or whatever I felt like having my hair be
i used to believe that "2-in-1" shampoo, which is actually conditioning shampoo, meant it was for washing your hair and your body. I tried that once and it gave me a rash, so for a long time after that I would tell my mom while shopping that I can't use 2-in-1 shampoo.
I still hate conditioning shampoo however... because it doesn't work as well as separate shampoo and conditioner ;) lol
I had really long red hair when I was little and my Mother never let me cut it. Therefore, I did not have bangs. At school when I was in 1st grade, it was fashionable for the older girls to have bangs and poof them up. I thought for the longest time that you either A) didn't get bangs until you were more grown up (like boobs) or B) that you were either born with or without bangs and I was, unfortunately, born without them.
This belief was halted at age 8 when I got very sick of my long hair and chopped a huge hunk of it off, thus giving myself a very choppy version of "bangs".
When my sis was two years old, she used to believe that the hair strands that was on the house floor were hers.
She would carefully pick them up and put them on her head so that she wouldn't go bald. :)
When I was little, I thought that people were either born with bangs, or without them. =D
I used to believe that we are lice on some giant's head.. and the earthquakes happened when he moved around.. and it rained when he showered. hmm.. I was amazed to see this on south park.. episode: Lice Capades.. the memories flashed back..
I used to believe that after I cut my barbie's hair, they will grow again. They've never grown :(
When I was younger, I used to believe that your hair was colored by an ink pot inside your head and that the reason people's hair turns grey or white as they get older was that the ink pot eventually ran out of ink. When I came up with this theory, I was very afraid to do handstands anymore, for fear of spilling my ink pot!
When I was younger, I never brushed my hair. Now, when I was younger, I had this uncle who was incredibly bald. (Actually, he's still alive, and still quite bald.) My parents told me that when he was younger, he never brushed his hair, so it all fell out, and that mine would too. Needless to say, my hair brushing increased exponentially.
I used to believe that men who had lots of facial hair were covering up the fact that they didn't have any chins. I used to be afraid of hugging my uncle, or accidentally reaching up into his beard because I thought I'd find something unpleasant!
well... when I was around 6 or 7 years old I used to believe that only men had hair that grew on their bodies. Imagine
my surprise when at age 10 or 11 some other kids I was playing with, in thicket near a small creek (no pun intended), unearthed a worn "nudie" magazine they kept buried ! I thought the crotch areas of the ladies were smudged with dirt, at first. That was when the bubble bursted and my reality changed to accomodate this new information. This was in the early 70's when the hippie culture was in full bloom and being "natural" (hirsute in a hair suit) was "in". But I never liked it because it shocked me from what I had imagined prior to that, was the norm... that women were smooth as babies all over except the eyebrows, eye lashes and luxurious heads of hair. I am so glad that the trend toward women shaving down there and elsewhere has become "in fashion".
when i was young my brother had alot of dandruff, I asked him why his head was snowing and he got really mad. He still has alot of dandruff too!
When i was a kid, i used to think that my dads moustache grew out of his nostrils
when i was small i though the more dirty you had your hair then head lice wouldnt want to stay there caus it was too dirty for them. boy was i wrong!
