DIY Japanese straightening - bad idea?

Hey guys! I'm a busy college student and have been naturally curly for around 5 years now. While I love my curls, I just don't have the time/money to maintain it.

I was thinking of doing the liscio Japanese straightening method on myself. Is that a bad idea? Has anyone tried it? It seems like a relatively straightforward process, and there's no way I can spend the 600-1200 dollars some salons are asking for in my area.
I might try the sally's ion version as well, but liscio seems like much better quality.

Hair type: 2C-3A, very dry, extremely low porosity, med elasticity, insanely thick kinky-wavy.
HGs: Trader Joe's Nourish spa conditioner, Epsom salt rinse, Joico K-pak conditioner
Please don't do it.
Maybe try cutting it instead?
I just chopped mine yesterday.
but don't damage it believe me..
So not worth it!!
