I had a recipe for dreads that called for a TSP of honey for about a pint - also included tea tree oil, aloe juice, salt, IIRC. I made it, and I really liked the way it calmed my hair down in the early days. I didn't have any problems with bees, stickiness, etc. In fact, my hair felt great, washed clean when I washed again, and the fly-aways were gone.That said, pure honey on the hair is not something I would try. A nice salt/honey facial scrub on the other hand...
I've used raw honey in my hair in a mix of other things to give it a good conditioning. It was not sticky and I never attracted any bugs, living in Texas we have a lot of them. It did great in my hair, conditioned better than store bought products yet the integrity of my locs remained unchanged. However, like any other deep/regular conditioner, you do have to rinse it out. There is no conditioner I would leave in even if it is labeled to be left in, so the honey does not remain in the hair. My profile pic with my hair being very shiny was after that particular treatment.
