Why won't my waves form??

When I was a baby, I had type 3A pretty little ringlets. When I got my first haircut my hair straightened out. I first dyed my hair when I was 11, and aggressively straightened my hair throughout middle school. I dyed my hair twice more, once in 8th grade and fall of my freshman year. My hair wasn't stick straight, I had some type 2C looking curls so I quit using my straightener, switched to sulfate free shampoos and silicone free conditioners. I cut my hair 1 month ago, cutting out all the colored ends and damage. I'm trying to get something out of my hair, I scrunch like crazy with DevaCurl Wave Maker and SM Coconut and Hibiscus Styling Milk, but by day 2 (I sleep on a satin pillowcase) my hair falls flat except for 2-3 really defined curls. What am I doing wrong? Am I being impatient? I use DevaCurl's Delight line, and Kinky Curly's Knot Today. I can't spend anymore money, my budget is very tight.
