No, homemade gel doesn't have to include gelatin at all! That's the beauty of it. Mine does because it's an ingredient my hair just loooves.

That's great!! What a nice surprise for you. Does it affect your fragrance sensitivity at all?

I love a get-it-done-with-one product. Even better when it's inexpensive!

I've never tried the BTZ gels - my hair hates PVP with a major passion.
