I have used (and still use) some Curlisto products. I like the Structura Lotion a lot. It is CG, does a good job of defining my curls and isn't drying, but it doesn't have much hold at all.
The Structura Lotion is supposed to be used with one of their gels for hold, but I think this is a marketing ploy designed to get you to buy 2 products. To me, none of their gels is anything special.
Unfortunately, I can't think of anything in their line that would be a substitute for KCCC or anything in the Kinky Curly Line. They have a leave-in which seems OK but not as good as KCKT. KCCC seems unique from every other product I've tried.
I will repurchase the Structura Lotion when I need to. It is expensive but I get a lot. I use it when I do roller sets - that may not be what you have in mind.
They make nice shampoos but very expensive.
If you go to the product review section, you'll see a lot of other opinions about the Curlisto line. If you have trouble finding that section, just pm me or let me know in this thread. Hope this helps!
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.

Stylers: Experimenting with cones & sulfates while the dews are high. Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
