Pull slightly sideways (towards the floor) as your fingers leave the string.

As NoteBoat explains, letting a bit of finger flesh snag the string -- it doesn't take much, and after a while, you will be able to control the volume on each individual note.

Perhaps untill you master it you should angle your wrist/arm so that the fingers are angled in your direction

I don't know about the rest of you guys but when I do pull-offs I often forget about my thumb and push too hard causing my whole hand to tense up. So basically try to keep your whole hand relaxed while you are doing it.
