How do I get more volume at my roots? Will a big chop help?

So I have what I think is type 3a/ 3b curls and I have a lot of trouble getting my roots to curl. I have tried almost everything! My routine consists of using shea shampoo, a coconut oil deep conditioner and another conditioner then I use 2 leave ins. I am not sure if I'm doing too much and it's weighing down my hair but my hair did not have root volume even before I started using all these products. I've tried scrunching and twisting which didn't help and I've tried a zig-zag part  but that didnt do anything either. I don't really want to do root clipping sp do I have any other options? I was thinking about maybe cutting it shoulder length. Would that give me more volume too?
