Thanks to antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Science proofed honey to be helpful with healing number of skin diseases like dandruff, eczema, or tinea.

Studies conducted on patients with Pityriasis (dandruff) has shown:
‘Complete cure obtained in 79% of patients with pityriasis versicolor; 71% of patients with tinea cruris and 62% of patients with tinea corporis. ‘

What helped them? Patients were asked to use a honey mixture (containing honey, olive oil, and beeswax (1:1:1)) on problematic skin 3 times a day for up to 4 weeks.

Applying such a mixture 3 times a day may be impossible for some. Of course, there is daily life, work to do, and places to be. Depend on the scale of the problem you may see big results applying it daily or before every hair wash. 
If you suffer from dandruff, keep your scalp clean, moisturize, and exfoliate. Product buildup, dirt, oil, dryness, and lack of exfoliation promote those types of conditions. That can lead to hair loss.

How to use it?

Honey is safe to apply directly on the skin, including skin on your head. Though, considering how sticky it is more comfortable to mix it with different products: store-bought or homemade mask.
