...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! :)

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!

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!

Up until I was about 15 I believed that my Grandfather's hair was bleached white by acid rain. I still can't go out in the rain without feeling paranoid (I have dark brown hair, and I'd like to keep it that way).

I remember when I was about 5 years old and I wanted my mom to straighten my hair. Now being hispanic and having naturally curly hair this sometimes could be an all day process which could and would invlolve chemical relaxers. Well my mom says she would not because it took to long and she did not have the time. So I asked her to just give me a blowjob (thinking that was what you called the hair dryer)

When I was four I had realy long blonde hair but really hated having it brushed. My mom would say "keep still while I brush your hair or it will become a birds nest". For years I was terrified when I bird flew near me as I thought they would lay eggs in my hair.

My sister told me that hair is just dead veins. I believed her, and told all my friends, they were disgusted, but they believed me too.

My dad would tell me stories about kids who didn't wash all of the soap out of their hair. He said that, when it rained, a big soap bubble would form and carry the kid away.

When I was six I used to suck on the ends of my hair. My mum hated this habit and she told me that she knew a girl who used to suck on the ends of her hair and in the end she got a big ball of hair in her stomach and had to have an operation to get it out. Ever since then I tried my hardest not to do it anymore so that I wouldn't have to have that same operation.

When I was a child, I used to believe men's mustaches were really long nose hairs growing out of their nostrils.

When I was youngre, my brother said if you wore socks all the time, it would make your hair grow faster cause the hair that should grow on your feet would push out onto your head.
So I ended up making sure I wore socks all the time, because I didn't want foot hair!

Triplet boys I used to nanny for would get upset if I rolled down the car windows on the way home from the barber...they told me they were afraid that the wind would "blow away their haircuts".

I used to believe that men went bald because they wore hats. The hats kept their heads from getting sunlight and water that hair needs to grow, kind of like plants. I told my grandpa Verl that he should take his hat off while he was outdoors and maybe he could grow his hair back. I was way too old to have thought that!

When I was little, I thought if guys grew their hair to their shoulders, they were automatically girls. And if girls kept their leg hair too long they were automatically boys.

When I was a young boy, I used to yank the hair out of the barbie dolls of the girl next door. Until I was about 7 years old, I thought people had the same dots on their heads to hold their hair in as barbie dolls do.
