Don't release both ends, your bike may actually tend to straighten the curve and put you in a dangerous situation.
Releasing only the outside of the bar respect to the turn is a common practice in track days to ensure that both hands are not fighting each other.
The hand that remains holding the handlebar will feel any pull or push.
