Histogram based on selection

So i always like to shoot milkyway shots with a long exp foreground and usually split the sky and land up with a selection. I then use the curves and watch the histogram to get my r g b colour peaks lined up...for some reason initially the histo shows the three peaks discounting the dark land...but as soon as i press curves after making the selection it shows the dark land on the histo making it difficult to correct the image. Ive never done the show selected area as its always worked just like im saying here but when i do that theres nothing on the histogram anyway? How do i make the histo just read my masked selection area like it seems to do at first?
