I have a pull shade in my window that flies up too fast. How do I slow it down?

You know in the cartoons where there's one of those pull down window shade that, when you pull on it, it flies up and then goes WHAP WHAP WHAP as it spins around at the top?
Turns out I've got one of those. Six windowshades in my living room. One that thinks it's trying to escape everytime. Pulling it up or down is like trying to cut the red wire on a bomb. Too much and WHAM it takes off and then whole assembly comes flying out of the window. It's comical. For others. For me? Not so much.
So what's the deal? Is it too tight? Is there a way to untighten it? Or slow it down?
