Following a mazhab

Q: Do we really need to follow a Mazhab?If yes why didn’t the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) or his companions not do so? My friends confused me with this points because I know that we cannot add anything to Islam unless it’s told or practised by the prophet Muhammed (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam).
