The simplist way to clean the wheels is to take a Q-Tip, dip in alcohol and clean the wheels by rotating them. I know it's not as fun as taking the head apart but...

But you can’t get the dust and hair wrapped around the axle with just a qtip and alcohol

If you want the head to stay on better, super glue some small & thin magnets to the bottom of the head. I did this and it works so well you can lift BB-8 up by his head. It also doesn't impead his speed or functionality. I also put a small piece of tape over the magnets to keep from scratching the body.

Awesome idea, could you let me know what brand/size magnet you used and what tape to recommend?
