Have you tried clipping? I do occasionally for volume since my waves start closer than the top of my ears, but I know a lot of wavies and curlies use clipping as a way to increase root curl because it takes the root isn't weighted down as much (so that weight isn't pulling the hair straight down) and it has more opportunity to curl.
Also, I don't remember if you said you had tried this, but have you done a protein treatment or deep treatment? My hair is fine and loves protein more than life itself so when my hair starts losing wave, I know it's most likely because my hair is lacking protein. However, if your hair is more coarse, adding moisture might give it back some life.
As far as a particular haircut, I would definitely recommend going for a Devacut if you can splurge for one (they can be a bit pricey - mine was $90, but made the biggest difference). If you want something a bit cheaper, just got for long layers, so your hair won't be weighted down.
