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".

I used to believe that more hair grew out of the tips of your hair, not your head. i found out when i was 13 that it doesn't. my friend who told me still teases me about it.

When I was young, my mom always told me when she would brush my hair at night that she was brushing out the knots. When I asked her what the "knots" were, she told me this story about the "knots" being little monsters that sneak into little girls' hair at night, and unless they got brushed out at least once a day, they'd take over my head and I'd have knotty hair forever.

I used to think that "extra body" shampoo meant you could use the runoff suds to clean your body.

My friend convinced me that if I used a bar of soap to wash my hair instead of shampoo that I would go bald.

When i was in kindergarten i thought that growing your bangs out would make your bangs fall out. like when your bangs reached the length of the rest of your hair they would just fall out!

I used to think you could only wear curlers at night time when to bed. If you wore them in the day time they would not curl your hair!

I used to chew on my hair when i was in preschool, untill my preschool teachers got together and told me a creative little story obout a little girl in the news who had a huge hair ball in her stomach from chewing her hair. Whenever I got a stomach ace I'd get scared and think I had a hair ball.

when I was small, I lived with my grandparents and cousins. I often wondered how my grandpa became bald, and when I asked him he told me that it all just fell out in a heap one day, and explained that this happens to all males. I utterly belived him and until i was about 12, I followed my oldest cousin ray around with a camera, hoping to get a picture of that moment since he always picked on me.

I used to think the 'round the bowl' haircut was the only haircut that suited me. Of course then I grew up and saw photos of myself and knew I was wrong!

I used to believe that clipping your bangs back in a barrette signaled the bangs to grow very long. I didn't understand that putting them back just allowed you to grow them long without having them in your eyes.

My mom had always plucked her eyebrows, so she had none left, like three hairs on each side. So when i was little i asked her why she didnt have any eyebrows and she told me it was because she wasn't there when they were handing them out. I believed her for ages, that there was some giant room with a massive queue and my mom got there after they closed. Then i figured out that i have eyebrows and i never queued for them...
