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

I used to believe that you had to be blonde to be dumb because that's what everyone used to call me, and I was blonde.

I used to think that black people had hair made of yarn.

I also used to think that anyone could grow a beard if they wanted to - even women. I didn't know that beardless people shaved - I just assumed if you wanted a beard, one would grow, and if you didn't want one, it wouldn't grow.

When my brother was little, he was terrified of hair, especially wet hair, since, as you all know, wet hair sticks to you and is especially hard to get rid of. He used to cry everytime he had a back because he believed that the wet hair (which he believed was alive) was going to get him.

My 4 year old was really nervous at her first professional hair cut. With a little prodding I discovered that she belived that the length of your hair determined whether you were a boy or a girl. She was afraid she would turn into a boy if they cut her hair too short.

...i had and still have a "cow's lick" and was told that at birth a big cow came in and licked my forehead and thus my hair...i cannot rememeber if it puzzled me, frightened me, amazed me, but i have been fascinated with cows ever since...my son has an even bigger "cow's lick" than i had but he didn't buy the story AT all when i told him why...children nowadays are way smarter than what we were in the 70's! :)

I had blonde hair when I was little, and I believed that people with brown or black hair had dirty hair and just needed to wash it to turn it back to blonde.

My aunt once told my cousin and I that if we chewed on our hair too much, one long strand would grow out of our throats forever. I must have believed that until I was at least 11 years old.

I was 10, and my brother who was 7 convinced me that the little hairs by my ears were called hashbrowns. One morning, mom was brushing my hair for school and I yelled, "Stop! You're ripping my hashbrowns out!"
She laughed at me and told me they were called sideburns. I confronted my brother later, with every intent on beating him for making me look stupid. He said, "Well, I knew they were either called hashbrowns or sideburns. Hashbrowns made more sense."
I was inclined to agree. Even today, my family calls them hashbrowns.

When I was younger, I thought that since people's hair turned gray/white when they aged, then their skin would also lighten as well. Consequently, I thought that when I got old that my hair would turn gray and that my skin wuold become pale.

When I was little I saw a man with massive stiff dreadllocks tied back in a ponytail.
I had never seen dreadlocks before and I thought he had put branches in his hair.
