Welcome. The first time going natural probably turned out like that because you didn't separate enough. That'll do it.
As for crocheting... It's worse than wax. Eagle's right. Crocheting breaks hairs into smaller and smaller pieces every time it passes through your lock. It weakens your locks and can cause them to snap off in places, and even at the root leaving a bald spot.
Welcome and Happy Dreading.
