Question DIY Curl Activators???

Hi, so i was wondering if anyone hd any good curl activator recipes. My hair latley has been wavy on top (top layer) and underneath same curly Q's. And latley i have been wanting more curl than usual. If this helps heres my routine:

Wash and condition with all natural ingrediants (checked myself) every other day.
Comb and detangle my hair with a big tooth comb from ouidad.
I use Moroccan Oil (the defrizzing oil) and Deva Light-Defining gel. Only a little bit of each so i dont way my hair down.
Then i plop my hair in an old sweater and go to bed.
And my hair is fairly long, bout 3 inches past my shoulders.

So can anyone help me out with a light curl activator??? Thanks so much!

I've heard that adding epsom salts(dissolved in water) is a curl activator... but it can be drying. Careful with using it too much!
