Default Newbie with a quick question on stiffening grosgrain ribbon

Hi! So glad I found this site. Between this, youtube and pinterest I feel like I can finally figure this out....but still learning!

Here is my quick question...

I'm making single layer grosgrain cheer bows, but the grosgrain is floppy....how do I get it to stiffen up? I read something about putting them in the oven on low heat for like 10 minutes, but not sure if I should do that before shaping the bow or after?

If I can do them in the oven, I'd rather go that route than spend more money on some other spray or something...unless it's hair spray and I have that at home already LOL

I don't have this problem with my 2 or 3 layer bows due to all the Heat and Bond.

Any help would be appreciated!
