As a young child, I believd that the colour of a person's hair indicated the time of day that they born. Blondes were born in the morning, brunettes in the afternoon & evening and black haired people were born at night. Redheads were born only when the sky was red - that's why there weren't so many of them.

I used to chew my hair a lot (not sure why...), until an older friend of mine told me that you shouldn't chew your hair because if you swallowed too many hairs you'd get a hairball in your stomach, and have to have surgery to get it removed.

I woke my dad up that night crying because I'd swallowed a hair and thought I was going to have to have surgery...

When I was young I strongly believed that white people SHOULD NOT shave off all their hair or they would die. It was because I had never seen a bold-headed white person before, I saw very little of white paople then.

When we were kids, my older sister and I would take our bath together. And our favorite game was to "shave" foam off our backs with our dad's razor, the cap on obviously. But once, I used the razor on my arm without the cap. So as to prevent me from doing it again, my sister told me that I would turn into a very hairy monster. She even convinced me that horns were growing as she was speaking to me, I could feel them!
I called my mother for help, asking her to tell my sister that it wasn't true but my mum confirmed my sister's theory... The following night, I stayed awake, waiting for my body to transform into a beast.

I used to think that doing a haircut is easy, and letting a trained hairdresser do it is simply a social ritual. The truth revealed when I tried to cut my little sister's hair.

When I was little I used to be best friends with this black girl. She used to get weaves put in her hair and her mom would melt the ends to keep them from coming undone if they were braided. So for the longest time I always thought that black people's hair could be melted!

When I was three or four, I used to think that every part of your body that can move had bones in it. So, I thought that all of my hairs had tiny individual bones in them like they were small tails.

When I was in about 6th grade, it was 'cool' to have a little bit of your hair running into the corner of your mouth. Lots of girls stopped when the rumor started going around that it would give you worms. I don't know which was dorkier - thinking it was cool, believing the worm theory, or the pitiful girls whose hair was so short that they actually had to distort their mouths to get it to stretch that far - like me. =8O

I used to believe several things about hair, so I'm just going to combine them all into one post:

-When I was three or four, I wanted to grow my hair longer, and I believed that tipping my head back would magically make it grow.

-Until I was five or so, I believed that ponytails were prosthetic devices for girls and women with short hair, that had to be purchased at some special store, and removed every night.

-Until I was five or six, I believed that I could cut my dolls' hair, and it would grow back like mine did (I don't remember ever testing this theory, though).

-I believed that clowns were just born with Technicolour afros, or yarn pigtails or mop tops, or whatever they had.

-Until I was about, oh, maybe thirteen, I believed that there was a correlation between the colour of the hair on people's heads, and their pubic hair.....so, a red-headed person would have red pubic hair. This myth was disproven during a game of "Truth or Dare" at camp.

I used to believe that pubic hair was said public hair and that whoever had it would show it off to the public. One time when I was about 6, we were at the beach with my cousins and I told my older cousin, "How come your not showing your public hair?" My cousin gave me a strange look and walked away laughing. I wasn't corrected of my embarrasing mistake until I was 11!
