You might try banding. it's using those cloth rubber bandsdown the length to stretch the hair overnight. Yikes might be careful how you set them if you don't want them to stick out. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wbI16E3jr88

I was thinking about that, and I guess I just realized it's the best thing to do. I just realized there are 2 bands on each braid and they're being kept from being in those two places. One more band should do it.
