Try banding or even braiding to stretch your hair. If you band make sure not to use rubber bands

I stretch different ways:

Banding
Bobby pinning my twists to the opposite sides of my head
Curlformers

Banding. If your shrinkage is real powerful, you may have to do quite small sections with as many bands as you can fit on the length. If I want a good stretch, I will do about 10 sections.
