It all depends on your hair. I am Caucasian/Hispanic and have used products designed for AA women for over 20 years, because they tend to be more moisturizing. Also because I started using relaxers at a very young age and I followed the advice I got from other "relaxers" who were almost all AA. I don't use them exclusively, they're just part of the many mix of products I throw in, like all of us curlies!
I can understand the reluctance if your hair is not that curly, but I started using lye-based relaxer after repeated attempts at using relaxers made for Caucasian hair resulted in miserable failure time after time. Once I started with "AA relaxers", I never looked back.
And yes, ORS is probably the best relaxer I've used, and I've used it in both lye- and no-lye formulas. I found it as good as Phytorelaxer, which is ten times the price.
In fact anyone who's read even one of my posts here knows that I am a walking talking advertisement for the entire ORS line, which is fantastic. I haven't used one product of theirs I dont' love.
