Can you decrease the amount of hairs shed on your head to only 5-10 a day?

In brief: No - avg 50-100/d

In normally healthy adults, we lose on average 50-100 hairs each day.
When we get sick or there's a change in our personal physiology, we can lose even more hairs each day. But it's not feasible to decrease hair loss down to 90% of average. Don't believe any ads promising such. Check out https://www.aad.org/public/skin-hair-nails/hair-care/hair-loss-vs-hair-shedding.
