These are OK. The rest are wrong.

You need to bring your own clothes.
You need to ask for it.

All you need to do is to ask for it.

I need help.
I need your help.

After though, my amendment,

You need asking for it. (Asking is a verb here)

All you need is asking.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

You need to bring your own clothes. Fine

You need bringing your own clothes. (Bring is a verb here) Not correct

I need your help. (Help acts a noun here) Yes!

I need help. (Help acts a noun here) Best of all!

I need helping from you. (Help acts a verb here) No, not grammatical

You need to ask (for) it.

You need asking for it. (Asing is a verb here) No,no,no, never say that.

All you need is (to)asked.


Cheers


You need to understand these 4 common words that are always followed by to-infinitive in a simple sentence: Need, want, have, and like. i.e. I want to leave now. I like to help. You need to listen.
