Default Heat Sealing and Black Ends

Forgive my ignorance, I have been searching for "heat sealing" and the likes for over 30 minutes in the forum but I am trying to heat seal (with a lighter) the ends of my korked ribbon which I have starched and every time I end up with charred ends!! I've tried just swiping quickly over the lighter, but it still burns. Before, I did not starch and I didn't notice this problem; however I was using nylon ribbon and now I'mm using just grosgrain. Anyone have a suggestion?
Thanks!

The starch is causing it to burn. Heat seal before you starch.

Yeah, I thought so, but I kept reading where everyone was starching and then baking korkers-so how do you heat seal after you've baked and starched-or do you just use fray check?

Thanks-confirmed my assumptions.
