My locs are 10 months old and they seem to be locking but after they come untwisted they puff out (probably due to my thick afro hair) and they draw up to the point that I can’t even shake them anymore. but stretch out atleat 2 inches when I pull them. how can fight against this shrinkage

There’s nothing really that can be done. When your locs get heavy enough to weight the roots down, there will be little to no shrinkage. But until then, your puffy crown is going to be more-or-less a constant, save for retwisting it. Sleeping with your locs covered in a headscarf will help your locs stay down, though.
