Soak your hair roots and braids with removal cream. Allow the cream to infiltrate for around 15 to 20 minutes. Apply more cream at the roots of your hair roots and braids, and allow it to penetrate further for another 5 to 10 minutes if your hairstylist use bonding glue at the time you made cornrows.

Cut off all the bonded tips of cornrows or braids. If the hairstylist used miniature elastic bands instead of bonding glue then untie the bands delicately without cutting if possible.

Start unlacing one cornrow at a time, working from the bottom up. Use your thumb or index finger to loosen tiny sections of your cornrow or braid. Untie the cornrows very gently or else you will damage your hair. Comb through each unlaced braid or cornrow before moving on to the next one helps to avoid hair chumming. Spray conditioner on twisted areas to help you in combing. Never pull or tug at a harsh tangle.

When you have untied all the cornrows or braids, wash your hair with shampoo and hair conditioner. Gently massage your scalp to remove all the dry flakes and dust. No matter how gently you unlace your braids or cornrows, one will experience a bit of hair loss or shredding.

Apply more removal cream after washing only if the bonding material is still present, and wash your hairs yet again after removing the remaining bonding. Allow the hair to dry out.
