I’m not sure but I think clear fingernail polish should do the trick

They sell a product called Fray check at any fabric store.  Very similar results with clear nail polish but not as messy application.

Fray check works….sometimes…or you can burn the ends with a match. Careful though, oganza goes up QUICK. You just hold the match near it and you’re good to go.

I second the clear nail polish it stops virtually anything from fraying, or when you get runs in your pantyhose, they stops those too!!

you can burn the ends, just slightly with a lighter, of most ribbons and it seals them so they dont fray. Cheap and easy!
