For a few weeks (when I was around 14!), I doubted the existance of people with red hair. It just seemed like, whenever I thought about it, there was no one with red hair around me at the time.

When I was a kid, my father told me that his thinning hairline was caused by flying fish that used to leap out of the ocean and bite out a few strands as he caught the ferry to work every day. I was 23 when I realised that this couldn't possibly be true!

My Granny once told me, to stop me sucking my hair, that all the hair you sucked made a big ball in your stomach and eventually it would kill you. She said that once a girl had died and a huge ball of hair was in her stomach, and the put it in horniman museum, near the stuffed animals.
I never sucked my hair after that, but i always looked for the ball of hair when we went to hornimans museum. Obviously it was never there, but i still believed her! Its only now that i realise how silly that sounds!

When I was in the 3rd grade we had neighbors whose children had really red hair. They also ate katchup on everything and I mean everything. I asked Mom if that they had red hair because they ate lots of ketchup?

I don't remember this, but when i was little i had really long hair. My friend told me that she asked me how i got my hair so long, and apparently i told her to go outside and put it down the drain. I was a strange young child.

I used to believe that for every hair you had on your head, it represented some sort of memory from your past or present. It didn't have to be all good or prominant memories; just a little something that you could clearly remember. So I thought that if you pulled each hair off of your head, you could tell a different story for each one you pulled off.

I used to think hair was a plant that grew on your head, i used to pull strands of hair out and try to find the seeds, I thought that one day I'd find them and sell then to bald people and get rich.

When I was little I thought coloured people had white pubic hair because white people had dark pubic hair.

I used to put hair grease on my arms and legs when I was younger, and I believed/ and still do, that the hair grease made the hair on my arms and legs grow.

When my Mom washed my hair, she used to sing "I'm going to wash that man right out of your hair....". So here I visioned a little man with a tiny house in my hair, never knowing how he got there. I always felt sorry for the little man being washed away down the drain and often wondered what he did when he got down there. How come I never saw this little man? I always looked for him.. As this was repeated often during bathtimes I also wondered how the little man always got back into my hair from the drain!

My little brother used to believe that after getting a hair cut you shouldn't take a shower/bath right away because it would make his hair grow faster

I used to belive that having short hair would make you smaller. I still have long hair, but now I know that short hair doesn't make you smaller.

I used to think that if you used shampoo/conditioner to wash anywhere else in your body besides your hair, you would grow hair in that area.

My uncle (who is bald on top) once told me--when I asked him why he was--that he had run holding a stick. I was skeptical, but thought he was possibly right, but there was no way I was giving up the imaginary midevel wars with my friends. Running while holding a stick figured prominently in these games.

I thought that pubic hair was called public hair. The word inventors were making it a joke because it's supposed to be private.
