This odd myth isn’t much-believed anymore, but it used to be considered common knowledge. Parents would encourage kids to eat the crusts of their bread because it would make their hair curly. This myth is said to have originated in 18th century Europe when famine plagued the land. People with curly hair were for some reason considered more prosperous, and they could afford more bread. The crust of the bread is actually the best part of the slice, packing eight times the antioxidants as the rest, so don’t cut those crusts next time you make a PB&J, no matter what the hairstyle.
