You would have been better of fitting a catnic lintol to carry both inner and outer walls.
This could have been fitted from the inside and the front flange would have slid under the headers.

You should have used an I.G lintel this would have carried internal blockwork and external brickwork.You could put a concrete lintel on the outside and remove the headers but it will not look pretty.
