I've never heard of that lol. I do know that there is a link in a hormone produced by heartburn and hair growth, so the theory is that lots of heartburn means a full head of hair.

My mom had severe heartburn the entire pregnancy, and all us kids were bald as a rock. XD It's just another fun myth, mostly. :)

With my first girl I hated spicy food and she came out with long dark hair. My second girl all's I ever wanted was spicy everything all the time and she came out just as hairy as her sister. It's a myth like how you carry so on and so fourth

Actually it's been proven that heartburn means hair. However, eating spicy food doesn't mean hair. It's if you just naturally get a lot of really bad heartburn without the help of spicy food, obviously if you eat it you'll get heartburn especially being pregnant lol
