Before emigrating to America in 1952 at age 8 as a WWII refugee with my family, I really knew nothing about Indians in the U.S. -- that is, until I saw a Western movie in the camp we eventually shipped out from. Not knowing better, I thought the Indians actually had feathers growing out of their heads.
when i was little, i used to believe that there were two kinds of girls: the ones that were born with hair fringe and the others that weren´t.
When I was little, I thought dying your hair would give you the color AND hairstyle displayed on the box.
Both my dad my grandfather (his dad) are bald on top of their heads. When I was a kid I always thought they chose to wear their hair tht way. I asked my dad one morning, "Daddy, how come you cut your hair just like grandpa's?"
I seriously thought that if I stuck my head out the window while the car was in motion, my hair would grow. I gave this advice to many people.
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...
When we were small my brother wouldn't use the shampoo in our shower because it was for "Permed Hair" and he didn't want curly hair. :)
I remember telling my grandma when I was little that I wanted to get my hair cut longer. I was shocked when she told me that hair can only be cut shorter.
when i was about 6, i believed that if you didnt want bangs anymore, you had to cut them off very close to your head. i tried this theory out one day, which resulted in a trip to the hairdressers and a very strange hairstyle for a while after.
When I was younger, I used to believe that your hair was colored by an ink pot inside your head and that the reason people's hair turns grey or white as they get older was that the ink pot eventually ran out of ink. When I came up with this theory, I was very afraid to do handstands anymore, for fear of spilling my ink pot!
after my mom told me I had strawberry blonde hair - I used to look for the strawberries after I got a haircut
I used to think that toothpaste could double as hairgel too, and would go around, proud of my slick and shiny hair. This worked well until one day, my cousin, who was 4 years older than me, suddenly noticed than my hair was filled with white goo.
And the rest, my dears, is history.
When I was a child I would move a lot while I was sleeping. Because of this my hair was always horribly tangled in the mornings. When my mom would be brushing the knots out she would say "Ashley, rats have been sleeping in your hair at night! Your hair is just a rat's nest." I thought she was serious and had trouble sleeping for months thinking that rats would get in my hair as soon as I fell asleep. And I believed this until I was 7.
When I was 'bout 4, I used to believe that
people with mullets were "in- betweeners" as in not boy nor gurl.
I had long hair when I was in kindergarden, and of course it is very painful with the knots in the hair. My parents would mention 'rats in my hair' etc.
So I ended up making a mouse trap in hopes to keep the rats from attacking my hair. The trap had copied the box-and-bait under it trap you see on Looney Tunes.
My parents still won't let me live it down.
When I was little, I used to believe that your hair was a huge wad inside your head, and that's how it kept growing. And that if you cut it too often you would run out of hair and become bald like your dad.
When I was little, my mom used to say people with with curly hair are smart. I was born with curly hair along with my dad (which made me thought I was blessed to be born smart), but other than that everyone in my family has straight hair. I was told that that when people get smarter, their hair curls and when people get dumber, their hair goes straight or lose curls. Then it was time for me to get my first haircut, a buzzcut and I never wanted to because I was afraid I will lose my curls and lose my memory but then my hair grew back along with the curls. Now I realize that hair has nothing to do with how smart or dumb you are...wow..
I thought that people wore hat in the winter because you lose the most heat through your head. (That's what they used to tell us.) Which makes perfect sense, because there are all those holes in your head where the hair comes out.
When I was a little boy, I thought that hair was made out of peanut butter.
In Urdu language there is a phrase that translates into English as two and a half hair which is said for someone with short thin hair.My mom used to tell me I had two and a half hair and I thought she meant literally.Once I asked my aunt how many hairs she had and she gave me a really confused look.I told ger since I had two and a half hairs she should know how many she had.My aunt burst out laughing.
Figured out the truth later on
