Post Limp loop

This is the first time I am posting; I think this is the right place to ask my question. My question: is it necessary to use starch on ribbon when making bows? I have been trying to practice making a big bow and noticed the loop was a little limp so I was wondering if it is necessary to use starch to make the ribbon some what stiffer? I am not making big loops. I am using 7/8 grosgrain ribbon. Any help is appreciated.

You shouldn't have to starch. Are you trying to make the twisted bow?
Post a picture if you can.
