As a child, my grandmother would always tell me old wive's tales about hair. While reading Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America," I found all of the hair superstitions my mom used to tell me-and more. The authors, Lori L. Tharps and Ayana Byrd did an excellent job in gathering all of these sayings.

Although I am familiar with many of these superstitions, this list was compiled by Ayana Byrd and Lori L. Tharp, authors of Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America." They can be found on page 24.
