Glad you have joined us RetrOctober!
Have you tried a protein treatment? That always perks up curls. Also, twirling them like in the Jonathan Torch (Curly Hair Solutions salon) video helps. There are quite a few videos on youtube with different methods which might help you.
Using a good curl creme or gel helps of course. Also I find that if I thoroughly rinse out conditioner it helps my curls be perkier, but many curlies find the opposite so its trial and error on that one.
