See the below examples step by step,

Example 1:

Steps 1 - install NPM commands
npm install react-helmet --save

Use Helmet Tags in your app componet:
import React from "react";
import { Helmet } from "react-helmet";

class Application extends React.Component {
    render() {
        return (
            <div className="application">
                <Helmet>
                    <meta charSet="utf-8" />
                    <title>Your Title Here..</title>
                    <link rel="canonical" href="https://code-sample.com/example" />
                    <meta property="og:site_name" content="code sample" />
                    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
                    <meta name="twitter:domain" content="code-sample.com" />
                    <meta name="twitter:title" property="og:title" itemprop="name" 
                    content="react helmet meta tag dynamically." />
                    <meta name="twitter:description" 
                    property="og:description" 
                    itemprop="description" 
                    content="I am trying to explain how to create meta tag from 
                    awebsite dynamically using react-helmet" />
                </Helmet>
                ...
        </div>
        );
    }
};

Nested or other components will override duplicate changes:
<Parent>
    <Helmet>
        <title>My Title</title>
        <meta name="description" content="Your Helmet description" />
        <meta property="og:site_name" content="code sample" />
        <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
        <meta name="twitter:domain" content="code-sample.com" />
        <meta name="twitter:title" property="og:title" itemprop="name" 
        content="react helmet meta tag dynamically." />
        <meta name="twitter:description" property="og:description" 
        itemprop="description" 
        content="I am trying to explain how to create meta tag from awebsite 
        dynamically using react-helmet" />
    </Helmet>
    <Child>
        <Helmet>
            <title>Nested Title</title>
            <meta name="description" content="Your Nested component description" />
        </Helmet>
    </Child>
</Parent>

The outputs look like:

<head>
    <title>Nested Title</title>
    <meta name="description" content="Your Nested component description">
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="code sample" />
    <meta name="twitter:card" content="summary" />
    <meta name="twitter:domain" content="code-sample.com" />
    <meta name="twitter:title" property="og:title" itemprop="name" 
    content="react helmet meta tag dynamically." />
    <meta name="twitter:description" property="og:description" itemprop="description" 
    content="I am trying to explain how to create meta tag from awebsite 
    dynamically using react-helmet" />
</head>
