Default Make Bows Stiff

How do you make the bows stiff or hold their shape such as with loopy bows? What products are there to use?

I use Stiffen Stuff by Beacon. I LOVE it!!! It dries super quick, so your bow is ready to go in no time at all. I haven't seen it at Walmart, but then again my Walmart is super small I buy it at Michaels.
