Donald Trump has finally tackled one of the major issues dogging his presidential campaign - his hair.

The billionaire assured 1,800 people in South Carolina that his trademark hairdo is for real.

"I don't wear a toupé," Trump told the big crowd, after reading out a New York Times excerpt that referred to his hair.

"It's my hair - I swear."

Then, just in case the crowd doubted Trump's own assertions, he called a woman up on stage to prove his point.

"You have to do an inspection - this is crazy!" Trump told the woman.

Trump had her touch his hair to prove that it was, in fact, real.

"Is this my har?" he asked her.

"Yes. I believe it is," replied the woman.

Trump was clearly pleased with her response.

"Nice to meet you. Somebody's got a very nice wife," he said.
