Another thing which might be contributing to your large loop is the style of the shaft of your hook. I have some hooks which have perfectly cylindrical shafts and others which spread out conically too quickly from the hook to the finger rest. The latter hooks make it difficult to keep the "high" stitches from spreading out at the top, so if I have the option I always choose the straight-shafted hook over the conical. If I don't have the option (all of my really small thread hooks are conical) I do what MH does and keep my finger on the extra turns of yarn or thread, pushing them down toward the hook.
