Regret brushing out dreads

I only had my dreads for a few months.. then I brushed them out mostly because my head was itching like crazy. My sister caught me in a moment of weakness and convinced me to take them out. I didn't backcomb them tightly enough anyway... but I still miss them so much.

But I don't want to spend hours upon hours backcombing again only to end up going insane with dandruff again. I used tea tree shampoo (I don't know how much of a difference there is between that and just the oil) it didn't help that much though. But when I combed them out they.. eh, didn't smell that pretty. I did occasionally use small amounts of DreadHead wax so I don't know if that caused it?
I would love to have dreads again. And there are a few things I would do differently. I just need to know how to control the itchy madness.
