Make sure the parent element of the 'li' display's flex in order to create a flex container; it enables a flex context for all its direct children.

So display the following and should work:

.main-nav {display: flex;}

.main-nav li {flex-grow:1;}

Hope this helps.

so what's wrong with leaving align-self:center in (just like in the video)? this code won't work

    display: -webkit-box;
  display: -moz-box;
  display: -ms-flexbox;
  display: -webkit-flex;
  display: flex;

.main-nav li{
  -webkit-flex-grow: 1;
  flex-grow: 1;
