2x6 T&g rafter tails twisting solutions

I've got a hip roof thats open beam cathedral. They used 2x6 t&g for the
roofing deck. Shingles and tar paper are directly on top of the 2x6's.
The house is located in hawaii i might add. No ice dams here.

My problem is the 2x6's were installed green and have shrunk and are twisting
at the ends where it attaches to the 2x6 facia. Is there anything i can
do from the roof side to keep them from warping? There is no soffit under
the eve so it would be better to put it on the topside. Anything other
than nailing EVERY 2x6 into the facia would be preferable.

I have searched but found nothing on here that addresses this problem.
ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated

without splitting the tails there's probably not much you can do
