  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Friz  \Friz\,  n.;  pl  {Frizzes}. 
  That  which  is  frizzed;  anything  crisped  or  curled,  as  a  wig; 
  a  frizzle.  [Written  also  {frizz}.] 
 
  He  [Dr.  Johnson],  who  saw  in  his  glass  how  his  wig 
  became  his  face  and  head,  might  easily  infer  that  a 
  similar  fullbottomed,  well-curled  friz  of  words  would 
  be  no  less  becoming  to  his  thoughts.  --Hare.
