Traction alopecia from long braids hair of Stevie Wonder?

Traction alopecia from long braids hair of Stevie Wonder?
I saw some pictures of Stevie Wonder with the long braids and all and could not help but wonder if his hair loss has been from traction alopecia. Stevie Wonder's hair has been with long braided locks for years, I haven't seen a picture of him without the braided hair.

Snoop Dogg was another guy with braids who got one helluva traction alopecia hair loss. Seems like the same pattern of hairloss in Snoop Dogg as with Stevie Wonder. Anyone think if the braids have made it worse or caused the balding with Stevie Wonder?

Pictures of his hair loss:

If you're going bald, then wearing braids should be the last thing on your mind!
If I remember correctly, Stevie Wonder has had the same braided hairstyle for years, and the type of braids that Stevie Wonder wears are notorious for destroying hair follicles. You can see the traction alopecia damage already in the second picture, which is from a good number of years ago gauging by how much younger Stevie looks.

From the pattern of hair loss, it looks like Stevie Wonder was already losing his hair through male pattern baldness but I have no doubts that his insistence on wearing braids year round has accelerated the hair loss. In fact, braided hairstyles (including cornrows) are akin to hair suicide in balding men.
