Disappearing Dreads

Hello GUDU!
As some of you may remember, I started my set nearly 4 months ago. The problem? Most of my babies have disappeared. Oddly enough the ones on top of my head have made it through, and are now quite tight :) The rest however, seems to have simply vanished. Especially the back of my head seems to be very dread resistant - I have had it backcombed roughly 3 times now, with varying degrees of tightness and yet not one dread is left over. I just can't figure out what the problem is, especially because a couple (8, I just counted) have made it through. I didn't touch any of them, and wouldn't let other people touch them either (no matter how insistent they were that I must definitely do some crotcheting).
So now I'm faced with a dilemma: should I try to backcomb them again? Should I wait until my hair gets longer and then try again (it's shoulder length now) or should I just let it be and see what forms naturally? The main points that I have to consider are a) that my hair is naturally curly and when I lie on it it goes flat (which is one of the plus points dreads carry with them in my opinion - no flatness! (or at least not as noticeable)) and b) I am graduating on the 25th of June and want to look pretty :D If need be I could hide it somewhat under a scarf or something, but it would be nice if I could present it in some form...

And help/advice would be greatly appreciated! I really want dreads, and this whole thing is just bringing my mood down. :-/

My beloved camera is broken, so no pictures I'm afraid :(
